Tweeting Killed the Blogg-i-ish Star (but the Potential of Long Form Prose May Just Win Him Back Again)
I love twitter - it’s really changed the way I consume media. I find most excellent content on the web these days via the folks I follow - my favorite blog, kottke.org is now just a tiny slice of my attention span. Twitter is helping me engage with content that isn’t on the web too - watching live TV has suddenly become much more interesting for me than on-demand because I can see what everyone else is thinking (even for ridiculously long tail shows late at night on cable only channels).
But, recently I’ve been considering embarking on a couple of more involved projects than I can capture in 140 char missives, so I’m going to experiment with web 1.0 all over again. Of course, my twitter stream will remain the up-to-the minute stream of consciousness it is today, but I’ll start linking out here from time to time. Wish me luck.
