Land Shark

The shark has jumped the shark. CNN's Wolf Blitzer just interviewed Jessica Yellin via Hologram from Chicago. Is this a desperate attempt to capture the techie audience? I detected no sense of the absurd. It was played with complete seriousness. Must be seen to be believed. Virtual reality meets cryogenically preserved elder idea of coolness. Cringe while you still can.

Help me, Wolf Blitzer, you're my only hope...

(Kind of a scary thought.)

I was going to say "Barack Obama", but you beat me to it ;).

Yeah, Kathleen, this was a dumb idea...

Parker, why don't you look up the word, "cryogenic" before you use it so nonsensically? You are a modern day Luddite.

CNN lost me about 3.2 seconds after I recovered from the laughter on that.

Lame and unnecessary.

Don't forget pointless. If you're one of the few dozen people in the studio, it might look cool, but the millions watching on TV just see the usual flat image. It looked like a green screen effect, and not even very well done.
