July 28, 2007 - Twitter as a Replacement for Beer

Julio doesn't like my blog -- it's too impersonal, not enough of me here for a friend. He's right of course, but I think Rands might have given me a solution in Twitter.

The problem is the tyranny of the pending entry. I typically have a queue of dev/testing/ci topics I want to blog and I find it hard to let more personal items jump the queue. In theory I could ignore that I still haven't shared the advice in On Writing Well that sounds like refactoring and dash off a note that Leanne has started he own softgoods workroom... but only in theory. My mind just doesn't seem to work like that.

Today though I read Rands description of Twitter as a yard sale for casual information and was interested. Then I read "I'd prefer to be drinking with y'all, but I'll take what I can get" and knew I had to sign-up.

If you're thinking it's been too long since we've had a beer together maybe you should sign up too?

Wow, I must be fading into the back pages of history. I'm not nearly connected enough to think of e-text twitter as anything like an acceptable substitute for a beer with a friend!
