Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, and now Whitney Houston—some of the music world’s legends are now gone. Where were you and what were were you doing when you heard of the news of Whitney’s death? For me, it will be one of those memories I look back on and remember exactly where I was when I heard the sad news—one that capped off a memorable day on the mountains of Vail Resort.
I saw the news first in my Facebook newsfeed as I gave the social site a quick look during the brisk walk back from dinner. My friends and I were in complete disbelief. I immediately logged into Visible Intelligence® to see when the news originally broke. Based on the conversation spike on Twitter and Facebook, the news started spreading right around 4:30 PM (PST).
