Good golly Miss Molly, you have all taken your time to get here. Twitter has finally arrived mainstream and all the attendant nonsense is starting to appear. The words 'craze' and 'passing fad' are absent just now but for how long ? I have been on Twitter for a wee while. Cycling through Finland last summer, it was great to keep in touch with the local weather. However, now it seems to be turning into part stalker, part compulsion and part 'the next big thing'. Everyone I know seems to want to follow Stephen Fry. He's a nice guy but I am not just that nosey. And maybe I'm not that online. Anyhow, I am clearing a space in the garage for my Twitter accounts; the CB radio, the Rubic Cube and the hula hoops will have to make way.
Here's the best example I have seen for a very long time. Bruce Springsteen committed a couple of paragraphs to describing the Superbowl concert. Love him or hate him; it's a compelling read.
As ever, the current set of projects grow arms and legs. Speaking to my friend Sheila over a Peckhams' latte I realise the old world was a fear of 'scope creep' and the new world is 'exploring possibilities'. And it's all good.
Just a quick post to hail the return of 43 Folders, Merlin is a genius and if you haven't discovered Merlin Mann - you are in for a great treat. Part productivity guru, comic and podcast talent - he is a lot of fun. Put '43 Folders' in iTunes search and enjoy !
