Hey-o, for anyone curious and there, I'm now signed in to a Twitter account. I don't pay it much attention when I'm not at work, so it isn't a good way to get ahold of me. I wonder if I'm missing part of the point of Twitter because of that, but I also don't really have the mindspace to spend on another stream of information, sorry.

I vaguely recall up signing up for Twitter via a message board I'm on and quickly concluding that it was pointless. Now I suddenly hear people talking about it all the time.

Yeah, I looked at it a year or more ago, and had the same conclusion. It seems it was a solution in search of a problem, and now people are finding more and more problems it can be the solution to, so for professional reasons I owe it to keep my finger on that pulse.

It's starting to get mentioned a lot by the technology-oriented library crowd, but I can't help but thinking that this will just get replaced by the next "you must use this" thing. It just seems like a way to have ever more people know where you are and what you're doing all the time in the fastest way possible. I fear the days when we all carry around a monitor that shows what we're seeing and doing constantly. Ugh.
