Twitter’s Out Of Control Spin Continues

Like a Headless Chicken

Oh it’s a long post that sometimes itself runs around like a headless chicken, but at least he too understands that Twitter is driving people away with its lack of focus.

Twitter might be the next Palm: They had the future in their hand and then just pissed it all away.

He doesn’t give suggestions.

Nor will I because, you know, fuck you, pay me. My days of freebie advice to highly-paid morons are long over. They don’t listen anyway, even when they do pay.

Crown Publishing Gets Clever

Actually, I don’t know if it’s Crown that did this or the author, Jillian Michaels, but it’s under Crown’s Flickr account.

Apparently at a Barnes & Noble signing for her book, photos of Jillian with each reader were taken and then uploaded to Flickr.

Nice event souvenir. Other publishers should take note.

Another Paper Fetishist Assimilated

A Book Lover Switches To The Kindle

It doesn’t require a bookshelf. Having moved about once a year in the last four years, I find my large book and especially DVD collection a burden.
