I really am sorry, but I can't help but share a few random things about my Twitter experiences lately. (This blog post will not have any socially redeeming value, and may need to be taken as a cry for help.)
- On Friday, I received an e-mail from Aaron Scamihorn at MediaSauce, who apparently saw one of my Twitter posts quoting a line from The Princess Bride (in Spanish, the translation for which I ripped off myself), and decided to create a bit of art because if it - see the image to the right. Quite nice, well done, wow, I'm honored.
- Two all-around interesting guys from Star Trek: The Next Generation (among other things) are on Twitter now - LeVar Burton and Wil Wheaton. Rumor has it that Brent Spiner might be next - sweet. There's something surreal and pleasant and twisted about now knowing when someone, who once played a character in a story on a show that I was thoroughly engrossed in from quite a distance, crosses the street or drinks some tea.
- I'm starting to get over Twitter, but remain intrigued by its immediacy, intimacy and global reach. It's the closest thing to a global chat room that can probably exist with today's slow hand/keyboard/monitor interfaces (and that may already be going farther than what's good for us). But it's just a bunch of people, all doing their thing, all thrown in the mix, and most of the time, it's just fascinating.
Okay, that's all, I'll stop now, carry on.
