I’ve noticed this new thing I do.
Once upon a time if I was struggling with something tech-like I would go to Google and either find something useful or not. Alternatively I would open my msn or maybe my mobile and try and match a person to the problem.
These days I Twitter and, as if by magic, the answer appears!
And I find myself answering questions too, it’s not all take.
So, here is this piece of technology that allows you to mutter, sorry Twitter away to yourself and then the people you know step in when they think they can help. That’s nice. It’s like sitting in an open plan office and asking the whole room a question except that the room is much bigger and, the people you are asking are not wishing that they had put their headphones on or that their music was louder.
There are some things about this new world of ambient intimacy that I really enjoy. Especially as in offline land I am quite loud and wonder how often people wish they could switch off their alerts!
