  • Ijustine and the Fake Steve Jobs

    The fake Steve Jobs linked to this video before writing a short commentary.  “Phone Bill Girl and one of her fellow Ph.D. candidates are discussing the work of Roland Barthes and narrative theory in the context of Derrida and Chomsky, with a deftly handled digression into the recurring sexism of Norman Mailer’s work” I have […]

  • Twitter Vox was a success

    Tonight I did my first proper live program on Operator 11 and it went really well. The participants for this show were Loudmouthman of Loudmouthman.com, Phil Campbell of me.dm and Rotjong of Lowlands 2007 mashup. We discussed the twitter meetup but quickly moved onto a variety of subjects. The conversation begins after a few seconds […]

  • McLuhan’s Thoughts And How They May Relate To Twitter

    “The simultaneity of electric communication, also characteristic of our nervous system, makes each of us present and accessible to every other person in the world. To a large degree, our co-presence everywhere at once in the electric age is a fact of passive, rather than active, experience. Actively we are more likely to have this […]

  • Operator 11, Your Own Television Show

  • Twitter IRL

  • Twitter is Suffering

    source Twitter is suffering and Jaiku is showing off about how great that website is in comparison. They omit to mention two facts. 1. It’s (giving the impression of being) proprietary, interesting mainly to Nokia users (at the moment) 2. It’s better online (requires a browser to take full advantage) Twitter is a mobile status […]

  • Twittervision

    Twitter is a global short messaging system that allows people to post what they are doing 140 characters at a time. For the moment it is a relatively new phenomenon therefore it’s not too hard to keep track of the conversations going on. They are also geo logged. As you’re watching people’s messages you can […]

  • Why You Should Use Twitter

    Twitter is a short message that are only 140 characters long. It can be used in three ways. The first is by instant messenger, the second is by text messaging to your mobile phone and the third is via the web interface. It’s referred to as microblogging, although not by me. I see it as […]

  • Twitter

    The idea that people expose their lives for everyone to read on sites like Flickr, blogger, and many others is a strange one. How often have you seen people partying with their friends yet not knowing a single one of them? It’s a voyeur’s paradise at the moment. I was listening to Net a night […]
