Mars Curiosity TONIGHT!


7 Minutes of Terror
Ever since the days of the Mercury Astronauts, I have followed, dreamed about, and been fascinated with the NASA Space Program. Tonight, the Curiosity Rover attempts MARS. You just have to watch this amazing video. 7 Minutes of Terror. I will be watching LIVE. It will remind me of the late evening viewing of the 1969 Moon Landing with Walter Cronkite, Neil Armstrong and my sleepy dad. Yes!

UPDATE: DONE!! Way to go Mars Team and NASA! I love watching history unfold. Congratulations!

The Great Facebook Username Chase

It was on. And just like 200,000 reported seekers, I landed my new username ( user name ) on Facebook. It was fun to see all the related Twitter posts of people doing the same race to secure their unique identities.

So now, on Twitter: http://twitter.com/RevTim
And on Facebook: http://facebook.com/RevTim

I wonder if this is becoming the new “dial tone” of the internet?

Have fun and get your identity if you haven’t yet. Just go to http://facebook.com/username

I like this: The Bible has a record of it’s own type of user names. Christ Followers are written down and it’s told about in Revelations 21:23-27 (ESV)

23 And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb. 24 By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it, 25 and its gates will never be shut by day—and u there will be no night there. 26 They will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations. 27 But v nothing unclean will ever enter it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or false, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

uStream – uStream.tv Media Streaming

I have a couple of uStream.tv accounts that offer free live video streaming. Since they began their services I have been interested in gathering together people and interacting with a live Internet audience.

What would you be most interested in tuning in? Interviews, concerts, Bible studies, New Media training? Something else? Would you tune in on a regular basis to something like this?

Would you like to learn how to do this yourself?Perhaps you would stream your church service or a Bible study. There are lots of possibilities. You just need a web cam, computer, and high-speed internet. Start there, then improve over time. It could be fun and rewarding, right?
