Now Playing: Engadget Podcast, 9/30 & Frou Frou's
Sat. afternoon was an action-packed day, first Giuliani, then dinner with mom and the bro, and then Jon Stewart.
The recap from Giuliani's speech, mostly points from his book on leadership. Here are the six parts of being an effective leader:
Now on to the other main event..perhaps there's some insight here as well: Jon Stewart sold out long ago, packing house while Giuliani still had tons of open seating, hmmm...
I didn't take photos at the Jon Stewart show b/c I assumed the RIT crowd would be all over it. But I spent five minutes searching for any others who blogged/Flickr-ed the Jon Stewart show. I only found this MSN Spaces blog and these Flickr photos. IceRocket found these and here were Technorati's results.
The funny thing is that the girl who took the photos was sitting right in front of me, but look at the picture of her waiting in line. I walked in right before 8pm but found a single seat and was probably only 30 rows back. Ha ha, one advantage of flying solo, you can always hustle to the front and find a seat.
Among all the jokes and social commentary, which were hilarious (his impromptu fun with the person working the closed captioning for the video screen was awesome), the most point on the state of the populace or at least among the youth, was the crowd's answer to Stewart's question on our outlook for the future. Almost everyone booed, someone yelled life sucks, and essentially the sentiment was that people were pessimistic about the future. I sat there shaking my head at this, thinking life is good, if only Americans knew how truly lucky and we are. We have so many opportunities that others would do anything for and yet we don't realize this standing in the world. What a shame.
