The Power of the Cellphone Camera: Gaddafi’s Final Moments

You might remember that I wrote a couple of posts about how cellphones, even the non-smartphones, have transformed the world. Here is a very topical example.

Graphic Stuff: Gaddafi’s Final Moments as captured by a cellphone camera.

    This is a refinement of the portable camera really, a bit more “now” and visceral but not that different in spirit than the execution photos of Mussolini. Its not that super different in spirit than the Bayeux Tapestry either, a memento of victory and propaganda.

    Its also a technology that is going to be a battleground of its own as well, states will try to use it to control and the opposition to breakout.

    Right now the opposition has the upper hand and I suspect that do largely to economics this will remain, I could be wrong and if that is not the case the cellphone and its assorted techs can be rendered moot.

    They had better cameras. They could have taken better shots of this glorious moment.

    A bunch of fucking savages. I hope Libya goes to hell. I don’t even need to hope I know it will. Gaddafi was the best that country could hope for. Even if they manage to make Libya functioning again (which is highly unlikely) it’ll be a puppet of the west.

    You believe this?

    I’m so tired of people.

    It appears that he was captured and lynched. Who actually did it is another matter..
