Is Twitter the new delicious?

Combining social and selfish reasons to share and contribute

Rob and I have been together for 12 years this month, but I still remember what it's like to get over a previous love. Back in the day when there was a little more turnover in my love life, I found that moving on to a new relationship wasn't enough to cure the heartache of a breakup. It wasn't until I was two breakups removed that I'd really get over a previous love and stop thinking about him altogether. I'm wondering if the same might be true of social web sites. I've loved delicious, the social bookmarking site, for almost five years now.

Public speakers, Cliff Atkinson has your back... channel

Book Review: "The Backchannel"

Intro paragraph with hoverpodiumJust as newspapers are scrambling to adjust to a world of blogs and YouTube, speakers are suddenly discovering they're not the only ones in the room who have a microphone. Tools like Twitter and wireless connectivity have broken the monopoly of the speech on, well, speech.



(one funeral-goer to another, watching a eulogy with a large Twitter stream projected behind the speaker and casket) I'm just saying not every event needs a backchannel.

Creating a conversation hub

How to monitor your blog's comments using Twitter


Twitter has helped move my attention from the soapbox side of social media ("Here I am blogging about the Important Idea I want to convey") towards its conversational side ("What do you think about my Important Idea?") The short message length and rapid-fire pace of Twitter, combined with the panoramic view of my friends that I get from my Tweetdeck setup , fosters a more conversational online relationship with my friends and colleagues.

Finding hope outside your inbox

Seven ways to break the habit of compulsive e-mail and Twitter check-ins


I was picking my daughter up from her first day of school, and I was so excited to hear how it went that got there a few minutes early. I could go in and spend a few extra minutes observing her class....or I could sneak one last peek at the day's e-mail. Sure enough, I pulled out my iPhone, only to experience that little ping of disappointment when the hoped-for e-mail from a prospective client had yet to arrive. I headed into my daughter's classroom, my excitement about the first day of school now dulled, ever so slightly, by the disappointment of that missing e-mail.
