twitter and tumblr
as an experiment i started a tumblr blog
to see what the fuss is about. tumblr is really the lowest friction rapid fire blog tool that makes things ultra easy -- even easier than vox
. let's see how long i keep this up.
the other thing that is all the rage right now is twitter
, which is basically the unix "wall
" command, but for the internet! well, ok, it is closer to the .plan file for unix finger
it isn't really that fun at the moment because i don't follow many people, nor do many follow me. but its cute for myself to look at and say, oh yeah, 2 days ago i tried to make a pizza while i was on the verge of starvation
my way of explaining twitter:
twitter is to instant messaging what mailing lists is to email.
right now it's a tad slow. maybe all this hype for it isn't that great. someone needs to make a spotlighted twitter page so that i can be "friends" with interesting people.
