For all the time I spend online (and oh boy, I spend plenty), my inner Luddite holds sway in much of the rest of my life. We have a television, but it's about 12 years old and has no reception, which is extremely deliberate: we restrict our cable service to phone and internet. This means I've been following the debates via friends' tweets, having recently been inspired to start using the Twitter account I set up last Spring.

I gotta say, I think I got everything that was important to get. Anything I missed, I'll pick up on SNL videos tomorrow.

Ha! I'm not surprised that it's more fun to watch our heads explode than it is to watch the reason why our heads are exploding.

You could probably watch just about everything you wanted to watch on the internet these days, including the debates. However, I'll agree that you probably got everything you needed to know via tweets. Much more entertaining, too.

Furrow, oh, yeah, much more entertaining!

Phantom, I figure if your head is gonna explode about it anyway, why put mine under pressure, too?

And YouTube - don't forget that.

Watching debates while twittering is good.
