Beautiful sunny morning. Even if I got up early on the wrong day by mistake ..
Having a croissant and latte at the Literary Café in Tufnell Park, sunshine breaking through the windows. Busy day ahead, but just now, read the news (on the computer) and sip coffee. Good sunny morning to you!
Yes, yes, I know it is disgusting to be chirping cheerfully on a Monday morning...
Although I’m still in two minds about Twitter (the signal to noise ratio is rather low and I can never keep up with it all, much worse than LJ or FB in that respect), I do find that, like other slightly naff bits of the Internet (like Usenet) it may be moderately useful. I also find that some people do read the transcripts of them here as I do read theirs. I do not want to impose them on other people so I put them behind a cut, so as not to offend some delicate sensibilities. But I think people do make a storm in a teacup over it, Twitter is evil and if you make it appear on your page I’ll defriend you because if you use it you’re a little less than human, sort of thing. C’mon, it is just another bit of the internet. I find most of the so-called memes (term apparently coined by Dawkins and which has a much wider meaning) rather very tiresome, as well as the large pictures that make you have to scroll horizontally for miles to see what people have said -in your entire page. But I don’t think I could complain so loudly and intensely about those things because I do not feel so intensely about those things. If someone is on my friends’ list it is not because they put there or not their twitter posts, but because I like and identify with at least aspects of who/what they are and feel that they are friends or could be friends.
So, please calm down. Mine’s a pint, by the way:P
