Moving at the Speed of ___________?
Tonight, with a couple of minutes left in game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, I decided to find out what day the finals start (I found out they start Thursday). Naturally, I used Google, and went to the Wikipedia entry for the NBA finals. Like I said, Cleveland was still playing Orlando, and even though they were down by 18 points, the game still had some time left. Regardless, Wikipedia had already been edited to declare Orlando the winner and spelled out which games would take place in L.A and which would happen in Orlando. I am not sure if I should have been startled or surprised by this (who's to say, anyway?), but I was. Information is moving so fast it is, in a sense, reaching conclusions before we do.
