Venezuela, Twitter, and a couple of cool gadgets.

Here's a NYT blog post about the murder rate in Venezuela. Seems worse every time I see it...

On a lighter note, here's a cool Twitter map. See what the world is talking about!

And, a couple of cool tech stuff. Intel has a four screen laptop. It looks cool, but when you watch a video, the video controls should stay on a mini-screen. For any media, the media controls should stay on the mini-screen.

Microsoft has a concept they're playing with--the dual-screen "courier" booklet. This seems almost like what netbooks should be. There could also be on on-screen full-size keyboard, with half of the keyboard on each screen. This gadget almost looks like a PDA-like device.
