So this is kinda sad, but I signed up for Twitter a week ago. Alicia's been nudging me for a while, but I've just now gotten around to it. That's about the same time that Kottke did, so it's not like I'm that far behind. But here's the sad part: it's been a week and I haven't thought a single interesting thing to twitter (twit? tweet?) about. I'm clearly not in the right mindset. Maybe going to a geek conference with a bunch of other tech-savvy folk will spur some interest.
I really like Dodgeball, but remain frustrated by it's failure to achieve of critical mass. I see how Twitter could be cooler in that it is more flexible and is being bent into uses the creators didn't even imagine. But Twitter has yet to prove that it can expand beyond the exact same set of people who were already using Dodgeball, which in my case was only a handful of friends. Anyway, the jury is still out, but I'd feel better about the whole thing if I found an occasion to actually say something.
