Also, check out Rob Mills’ blog post on Twitter — the third Ouroboros reference in recent memory and great reading.

  1. Aw shucks – again. 🙂

    @stephenfry is a grand Twitter connection.

    Merlin Mann aka @hotdogsladies is a vital source of insight & humour.

    @warrenellis is superb if you’re into the graphic novel scene at all.

    Must – have – daily – dose of @sockington.

    @mileskahn is the producer of the Daily Show and @hodgman is, of course, John Hodgman.

    @StephenHarper doesn’t do his own blog – he has some social-secretary, office intern, lackey plop out the occasional turd of info as to his royal wideness is up to these days. It’s better to just do a Twitter Search for “@StephenHarper” to see what everyone else is saying to him.


    P.S. I have more and will share but it’s time to put dinner on the table.

  2. Ooh, I want to be followed! My Twitter name is blogetteistaken. I think it’s a pretty self-explanatory one.

    Okay, I’ve bitten. I suppose it’s been around long enough I won’t be pilloried by my friends as an “early adopter”.

    Wait, all my friends already ARE early adopters. Crap, I’m behind the curve!

    mjreid is my twitter. Tweets to come.
