IT to be revealed on Good Morning America

I've heard that IT is going to be "revealed" on Good Morning America on December 3rd (next monday).

Diane Sawyer made the announcement on today's show. I've seen many posts about it on various message boards, but there is nothing about it on the GMA website.

For those of you who don't know Good Morning America is on ABC at 7am.

I've already been asked if I had confirmation. If I had confirmation it would be in the general forum

Here is one place you can read: http://www.theitquestion.com/forum/t...=IT+discussion I've seen it on two other message boards as well and an audio file that someone captured from todays episode with Diane Sawyer's announcement.

Well I think this puts the proof in the pudding below is a link to the audio from GMA announcing IT being revealed.

I am also working on undisputable confirmation from ABC, I am a graphic designer from local ABC affiliate channel 6 in Providence RI and have conntacted ABC directly.

Ah hahahahaha!! Wow, that was a good episode... Now, place your mouth on the control stick.... hehe. I'll never forget the scene of the incredibly crowded store and the people with "IT" outside in the parking lot going around and crashing into things. I sure hope Dean's IT is nothing like that one at all.

Dean can't keep a secret

I think I know what the "IT" is. Its called Ginger and its a powered scooter who' only emission is water. I found Ginger as well as, a 3D printer, and self healing plastic a while ago in the July issue of Maxim magazine (the article is stardate 2001).

I'll type the article up before dec 3rd so everyone can see what it says

Nope, that was the I-Bot.
I saw it at EPCOT and on stage with Dean balancing on the teeter-totter. Was really amazing.

The scooter you're referring to was one of the more common theories for the identity of IT/Ginger when all the news was going around about it previously. However, the majority of the scooter theory is based on a patent dated several years ago, so that causes some doubt to be placed on that theory. Also, some of the quotes regarding IT don't exactly seem to match up with the whole idea of a scooter. The power supply it uses perhaps, but not a scooter itself...

I won't be able to catch that show. About then I'll be in the band room doing any homework I forgot to do the night before. If only Mr Parrish would turn the TV on ABC that morning when school starts instead of our usual morning news (our school's TV production does a daily news show). Oh well.

~Angela who is sure to hear all about the unveiling of Ginger from someone on here anyway

Use your video camera to get it on cd? What do you mean? Actually video-tape the tv?
