« 4Chan vs Twitter: what happened when 4Chan took a mini swipe at Twitter | Main | Measuring ROI on online buzz monitoring (@benm1969) »

July 22, 2009


I'm totally with you on Google Wave Drew (I watched the video too!) - have you seen this: http://mashable.com/2009/07/21/google-wave-invites/

But I disagree with you about Twitter. I'm still finding it more useful that any of the other social tools out there, although as it gradually moves from early adopter/geeky stages to a more mainstream audience, it's certainly changing and developing which in itself is exciting to watch.

And the spam thing doesn't really bother me either, because that's the great thing about Twitter (versus email for example): it's opt-in. So, those spammers can follow you all they like, but if you don't follow them back, then they'll still never appear on your radar...

Ah, the flashing light on a Blackberry. It's always fun to show people how you can turn it off for emails and see their delight at the idea that that phone won't be sat blinking at them, making them feel guilty if they don't immediately read every email.
