They’re Going To Try To Shoot Down The BalloonComments

It’s being eagerly followed on Twitter. Some accounts to follow if you don’t already.
Shashank Joshi, who writes for the Economist, is good for commentary.
Laura Rozen isn’t an expert, but she is collecting some of the more interesting tweets.
Aaannnnd! The balloon seems to be down!
