This is so AMAZING! I just had to share.
A piece by a young composer/conductor by the name of Eric Whitacre. It's individual voices on video clips from around the the world edited together. One of the comments: "Are we starting to realize how much more powerful we are together?" It just kind of fits in with Wisconsin (remember the pizza donations?) -- the birthplace of a new populist revolution (non-violent, of course).

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

5. I didn't like it.
I need to put some thought into explaining why.

I think there's some irony involved in the view that web cams bring us together.
