"You just need to know how to type" says Matthew Hurst, an artificial intelligence researcher who studies this ecosystem at Microsoft Live Labs. Sadly that's part of the problem of the blogosphere :)
Great analysis from this month's Wired
I posted a few weeks back about my new found love for Twitter and mentioned I'd be posting more on this. I decided to wait a little to see if the honeymoon ended and I'm glad I did as a few things have changed:
My feelings have not changed though. Twitter is still well on the way to a tipping point of widespread awareness as happened to Facebook last year. I predict we'll see a mobile phone ship with an inbuilt Twitter client this year (0.8 probability).
Shel Israel wrote a great open letter to the Twitter guys this week. I only wish I could write as well as him as he articulates the current issues with Twitter and offers suggestions perfectly. These guys are on a great trajectory but need to work out a few issues such as availability and openness to truly accelerate. I'm sure they know that though. In parting, I'd like to add my own small wishlist, not so much for Evan Williams and Biz Stone but to readers of my blog who may be able to help. Stuff I'd like
that's all for now. I'm still enjoying the Twitter ride and slowly but surely my friends like Ben Tamblyn, Tony Cocks & Andy Faz are joining.
I'm no great fan of either stars of the video but it's a great ad.
These guys keep appearing in videos together. I fully expect to see Bill in the next U2 video.
Lots of good talk in this video but right there at the end Bono (31:10) gives us a little Blue Monster. Rock on as my pal Hugh would say :)
