In Which I Stop Pretending I'm Too Cool for This

I joined Twitter.

I still think it is a trend that will eventually die (you know, somewhere closer to AOL then snap bracelets). Why? Well, this post by Wil Wheaton was pretty convincing wilwheaton.typepad.com/wwdnbackup/2010/02/in-which-the-impact-of-twitter-on-my-life-is-examined.html

So I thought about it, and said, you know what? I might as well. All the cool kids are doing it.  And when was I ever a trend setter? My one disastrous attempt at being different was in middle school, and it was to start wear Christmas socks all year round (which, incidentally, isn't so much my personal trend these days as a "I can't seem to find any other socks." ). And eventually, I am convinced, I may be able to publish a book, and if I can use it to promote that book, well then, bring it on.

I'm still dreaming up my first post. Give it an hour or two, and I promise I'll be mundane. Three hours: possible genius.
