@pareene:“I think Chris Christie just jumped into the race.”

@robdelaney:“Did anyone I have a crush on’s husband or boyfriend die in the earthquake? DM me.”

@ModeledBehavior:“More and more scientists are questioning whether that was a real quake. It is a theory that’s out there.”

@snowed_in:“Breaking: Carole King feels the earth move under her feet.”

@chashomans:“I guess I better get an intern working on a ‘Five Things You Didn’t Know About the Mayan Serpent God’ listicle.”

@daveweigel:“DEVELOPING: Earthquake turns Gallup offices upside down. Obama now at 62% approval”

@ezraklein:“The Ocean’s 13 team is presumably stealing something pretty valuable right now.”

@jdickerson:“Everyone calm down. If this is an earthquake on the east coast we’re supposed to react ironically.”

@dylanmatt:“In retrospect, I resorted to cannibalism rather fast after the earthquake.”

Plus, add:
@pourmecoffee: If you had End of the World Sex, just clean up, exchange phony contact information and go back into your office building.


@ezraklein: This earthquake has clear policy implications that back up my previously held political opinions.

White House to open source Data.gov as open government data platform

New post at the +O'Reilly Radar on today's open data news out of Washington: "As 2011 comes to an end, there are 28 international open data platforms in the open government community. By the end of 2012, code from new "Data.gov-in-a-box" may help many more countries to stand up their own platforms. A partnership between the United States and India on open government has borne fruit: progress on making the open data platform Data.gov open source."

I interviewed US CIO +Steven VanRoekel for this one. I hope you all find it of interest. This is a story to watch.
