Documentary: The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

Comments off

The death of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez reminded of a documentary I saw years ago… and one, thanks to someone posting it to YouTube, people can see: The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

A documentary film crew happened to be filming Chávez during the April 2002 coup d’état, that removed him from office for two days.

I believe I was still in El Salvador, working for La Prensa Gráfica, when this all happened or recently moved back to the U.S.

NOTE: This isn’t the first time I’ve posted about Chávez. I wrote about him when he first joined Twitter nearly three years ago: Hugo Chávez selects his weapon of choice for Twitter

Hugo Chàvez selects his weapon of choice for Twitter

UPDATE: Hugo Chàvez (or his Social Media guru) has updated his Twitter page with some nice, revolutionary red colors. He is also now following five people… @ubertwitter is not one of them.

First tweet by Hugo Chàvez

Venezuela’s controversial president Hugo Chàvez has just joined Twitter (@chavezcandanga)… and he’s taken a page from Conan O’Brien‘s (@ConanOBrien) Twitter playbook.

Just like the late night talk show host, Chàvez is following only one person. Unlike the late night talk show host, Chàvez probably didn’t really think about who he selected.

(For the record, by “person,” I’m using the U.S. Supreme Court‘s version of the term.)

Chàvez is following @ubertwitter, the Twitter client popular on BlackBerry smartphones.

More than likely it was a default setting, but I can’t help but wonder… is TweetDeck jealous or relieved.
