Cyril and Geoff are off today, so you're stuck with me. I'll do my best to keep things entertaining, if not informative. Seems like the flow of news stories may be picking up a little this week after two of the slowest news weeks in, well, ages. Apparently, folks do take vacations in a recession. New product launches and other such announcements? Not so much.
Perhaps everyone is simply spending all day on Twitter now. Sure as heck feels like it. After joining Facebook earlier this year, I decided to give Twitter a try, as well, just to see what all the fuss was about. I signed up to follow a bunch of folks in the industry, and now I have a constant flow of usually relevant stuff in my feed, with lots of potential news items—along with a fair amount of less relevant stuff, including this sort of thing.
If you want, you can follow me on Twitter at scottwasson. As you can likely divine from my updates so far, though, I haven't really sorted out how to make worthwhile contributions in that format. 140 characters for me is just a secondary descriptive phrase, perhaps five percent of a sentence. Also, I have things to do, including updates on my web site. Which is sort of the whole point.
Maybe I'll get better with time. Meanwhile, you can also follow some more active TR personalities. TR Podcast host Jordan Drake is at vocalgeekery, and our Mac blogger, Jason Fox, at jason_fox. Both of them are terrifyingly prolific compared to me and thus vastly more interesting.
