Re: Does The Hard Sell Work?

Did you see this whole CNN/Kutcher dealio? It's pretty funny. I think CNN is totally getting into it to. I read somewhere that Larry King wants to have Kutcher on to talk about the whole thing.

On its surface it's pretty shallow, but it's actually pretty amazing if you think about. Ashton is just pointing out how the immediacy of modern-day technology can make an individual as powerful or more powerful as a media conglomerate. Of course CNN could have just flashed a Twitter request on their front page for an hour and blown Ashton out of the water, but still, pretty amazing.

I don't know if that's the beginning of something fantastic or horrible. Only time will tell.
