In Which Greebs Acts Like a Luddite
I like technology.
Hell, I LOVE technology. It’s part of my job, it’s what I spend a lot of disposable income on and … well, you are reading something that’s relatively tech dependent, so there. And it pains me to say this, but I can’t for the life of me figure out Twitter.com. I just can’t. People I like and trust seem to enjoy it to varying degrees, but…to quote John Heard from “Big,” I don’t get it.
I don’t get it.
I’m supposed to enter a brief description of what I’m doing and that can be posted on m twitter page…or in a widget on my blog (which I deleted), or sent to my friends via email or text message…and all of this is something new? Something interesting? Don’t blogs do this? User groups on a cell phone? Sure, it somewhat replaces those things but…in an interesting way? Not for me.
Again, I don’t get it.
Look, I’m sure that in eighteen months, when Google buys Twitter for $400 million or so, the egg will be on my face. But for now, Twitter is a big fucking waste of time and (wait for it) I don’t get it.
