This is the coolest online image application I have seen. It is called Sumo Paint and has a ton of features! There are layers, gradients, shapes, brushes, and blend modes. I played with it for about three minutes and made a little picture (nothing fancy, I know)
If you are in a more serious mood and if you Twitter you might consider in taking part tonight in fact checking during the vice-presidential debate. NPR is asking that you watch and whenever you hear something that you think contradicts what you have already heard, see if you can find a transcript or video that backs it up and the same thing when a statistic is quoted – try to find the original source. Twitter your finding with the tag #factcheck in your tweet.
Amazing – NPR will have people all over the country doing their preliminary research for them. To me this is the interactive internet at it’s best. What a way to get people involved. I wish I had seen this sooner. It would have been fun to have a twitter/debate party! There is still time – if you have wireless and some friends with laptops get together and participate!
