Ironic that he would get exactly what he wanted back, through his death.  I was reading today that already since his death more of his music has sold than has in the past 11 years.  The top 15 albums on Amazon, and several top spots on itunes too all belond to MJ.  The outpouring of remixes on the blogosphere is incredible too.

I knew that this would be the hot topic this weekend, but it’s pretty impressive just how massive the public outpouring has been.  Between 6 and 8pm yesterday 42,000 of his songs were played on Amazon, thousands of news articles were written, and tens of thousands of tweets, blog posts, and other social networking messages were sent out.  I guess I’m wondering to myself this – if you made even a very low estimate of the number of people that have had MJ on their mind this weekend, say 3,000,000 people, and you then estimated that they each spent an average of two minutes thinking/writing about his death, and you put all that time together, what could you do with that time?  6 man-years is what it would amount to, and the truth is that’s probably a huge underestimation.
