I spend too much time reading blogs.
Particularly, today, I have been reading about Twitter. I think it's well on its way to implosion now, so any comments I have to say about it are moot. I have a longer post saved as a draft, which I'll abandon.
gist: Web 2.0 communication can reach a level of ridiculous overload. I
don't think there is a need for Twitter. I don't think it has uses for
libraries (maybe the embedding of chat reference status into the
library homepage...but that's a service that is better handled by
another sort of system, not the Twitter methodology). It might be nice
for some people seeking to update others on their status; in some
situations it might be useful (loud, web-like congregations such as SXSW
or perhaps academic conferences might be testbeds) but I can't see myself using it.
And I'm more than a month behind the times in responding to it.
