Post July 4th thought: Ben Franklin the digger

Given that Benjamin Franklin had a background in diplomacy, science, publishing and traveling, is it really so hard to think that one of the only founding fathers never to seek office would be a digger if he were alive today?

I don't mean to say that he'd be an avid technology broadcast journalist turned internet entrepreneur, regardless of the image I chose for this entry. I'm talking about Ben Franklin wanting to advance his knowledge and improve the quality of life for all by bettering himself.

I urge everyone to go watch a Ben Franklin documentary and then tell me if it's not the same sense you get when you think of the most active digg users.

Just a thought.
