Get out there!

I found the part of Keenan's lecture on Packer's "The Revolution Will Not be Blogged" to be the most interesting part. This brought to mind a number of temporal problems with the time/location gap that the internet creates. Keenan mentioned the problem of the journalist not getting out there, due to the accessibility of blogging. Yet, even before the internet, there was the problem of whether the camera was following the action or the action following the camera. Thus, technology inherently problemitizes "the revolution" and its televising/blogging/etc. However, while decreasing the time gap creates problems, the revolution following technology vs. tech. following the revolution seems to stand as a consistent problem regardless of specific tech advances? Thoughts?
