    Yeah, I’d like to see a blogroll instead.

    Hey, I think I’m psychic: I saw that Rick added a comment to this and I immediately said “I bet he’s kvetching about the blogroll” and sure enough.

    Oh, did I mention that I could see that Rick added a comment to this post?

    Yeah, and…..?

    Blogrolls are so 2003.

    I’m still not sure I get Twitter. However, just so I don’t miss out on a starting intarweb fad, I’ve an account and added alesh as a friend.

    I don’t know exactly what this is, but I sure like the look and the name!

    my second update, “ripping classical CD’s borrowed from the library” got deleted twice! I think there’s some cyborg filtering happening at twitter!

    so what’s the point of twitter again?

    I mean, really.

    This way you don’t have to tell your friends what you had for lunch.

    Well, R., it works like this…
    Say Alesh is out on South Beach, and he sees Jessica Alba on 15th and Collins running down the street naked. He sends out a twitter message saying as much, I (and everyone else who has him as a twitter friend) get the message on my phone or computer, run outside and take tons of pics. My day is made!
    If Alesh had instead made a post on cm hours later, I would have been pissed and my WEEK would have been wrecked.

    twitter is okay. there was a link to gabbly on ignroe and kalopnikk a few weeks ago and i find it far more useful in theory. try it out here. really a weird application.

    I am CONSTANTLY hearing about two new web tools.

    Twitter and Jott.

    Jott seems real interesting… Here’s some text from their website (

    Have you ever …

    ... felt like you don’t remember things you should? Gifts to buy, a stroke of genius, a song to download, a cab fare?

    ... wanted to send an email or text message to somebody while in your car (and not take your eye off the road)?

    ... needed to get a message to a group of people, but couldn’t (or didn’t want to) make a bunch of separate calls.

    At Jott, we’re simply trying to give you more access: to your ideas, to people, and more.

    We do it using things you trust that are already in your life: an ordinary cell phone and your voice.

    To Jott, just make a phone call.

    Sounds like a another diversion for the office worker with their own computer and internet access. Does this comment make me sound jealous? Because I am. Where are my accoutrements of middle-class savvy?

    Damn it.

    No Nic — it works with a cell phone. Get on it.

    Michael ~ Jott looks interesting. i’m going to look into it after i’ve got my taxes done.
