Random thoughts on art, technology, stuff, and occasionally Real Estate: November 2007

Twitter Is Scary

This Twitter thing is scaring me.

I signed up on Twitter a few days ago, mainly to follow events at the NAR convention in Las Vegas.  Jeff Turner, Kristal Kraft, Daniel Rothamel, and others provided incredible minute-by-minute coverage.

I also decided to "follow" the "twitter-streams" of a few other folks that I find have interesting things to say.  One of those folks is Guy Kawasaki.

To my absolute horror, :-) Guy followed me back.

 

Oh, shoot. Aw, jeeez.  Now I feel obligated to occasionally tweet out something halfway intelligent.
