Obama Text Message Announcing Biden as his VP
It’s 3AM and I should be safe and asleep. But there’s a phone beside me and it’s beeping. Something’s happening in the world.
The text message arrived early Saturday 8/23/08, 3:04 AM -- "Barack has chosen Senator Joe Biden to be our VP nominee. Watch the first Obama-Biden rally live at 3pm ET on www.barackobama.com. Spread the word!"
Looks like I was first to post a screenshot of the SMS to Flickr. Yay. Go me. I pwnd you all. Woo hoo. I should be vice-president -- of beating you all to posting screenshots of text messages to the web. Haha! That's me, vice-president of the internet!
OK I should sleep now.
