Twitter Considering 10,000-Character Limit for Tweets flip.it/DUz.z Bring it on…
Controversially I’m in favour of this as I can think of the positives, but perhaps the 140 limit needs to stay as a headline, but with links, #hashes and @’s being part of the 10000 limit that display as part of the headline. This way Twitter can become a mini blogging system, or stay as it is.
What it will do to advertising is anyone’s guess though.
A sad moment, and close to my heart. I know we still have ‘mines’, but it appears we are so ‘anti’ coal now despite millions of tons of the stuff being in the ground. I’m all for renewables, and a reduction in pollution, but they are not the whole answer, and I still think that CO2, and with it all the complex taxation/rules, is not the bad boy.
I may in a minority though.
So it’s the last night of analogue TV in the UK. A milestone passed without much fuss.
Pink Floyd on iTunes! I missed that.. Spotify next?
Not on Spotify as of 23/10/11
Wow, am I the only one who wonders how relevant this is anymore? #iTunes #Beatles
Not that I meant too, it’s just been that way. I suppose the bombings in London just reminded me how frail we all are, and that in a moment all this could be gone.
How long would a blog remain if I stopped, for whatever reason, tomorrow? Its not exactly like a paper diary is it. I suppose it would remain online until the next hosting payment became due, a little less than a year?
I know this blog is little more than my personal diary, but, like the modern phenomenon of mobile phones ringing forlornly after any major tragedy involving fatalities, how many dead links and forgotten blogs lie around the net because of personal tragedy?
Like many others yesterdays events give you that little pang of grief, and the remainders of your own frailty, and, thank God, makes you value your own life that little more.
My thoughts are with those affected, in ALL incidents where innocent lives are take in the misguided quests for idealism or power.
