I got the text message announcing Obama’s choice of Biden for his running mate at 3:04 AM, and snapped a photo and posted it to Flickr within two minutes of receiving it. (Oh, and I got the whole “It’s 3AM” reference out of my system over at We Love DC.)
As far as I can tell from the tags for SMS, text, Obama, and Biden, I beat everyone else to the mad rush to post photos of the text message to Flickr. So, I award an Olympic gold medal to myself in the total loser sport of uploading photos of famous text messages, with silver and bronze medals respectively to ckelley and admartinezjr — and an honorable mention to Sister72 for placing fourth, but also first after me to use the “3AM” gag.
More on Biden from Politico: Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., and A Statesman Known for his Slips of the Tongue. But hey, he’s a Catholic (pro-abortion, unfortunately) who did well in states where Obama did poorly in primaries, and is chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations, so he helps fill Obama’s perceived gaps in experience and foreign policy.
But let’s not lose sight of what’s really important here: first to upload photo of historic text message!!! Yeah! Woo hoo!! I rock so hard!!!
Okay, bed time.
Update: Those of you who want to use the photo for your blog entries and news stories, please use it freely. I have marked it “Creative Commons Attribution,” the most generous license in Flickr’s CC options. I mean, it’s not like I need to be all protective over a simple photo of a text message on a mobile phone.
