Twitter occupies a peculiar niche somewhere in between blogging and instant messaging. I’d played around with it in the past and found it to be sort of juvenile, but this weekend I tried again and I’m afraid I’m hooked. Yeah, it’s still a little strange to constantly be telling the world the answer to “What are you doing?”, but on the other hand, everybody likes to feel connected to other people, and I think Twitter in some geekish way does this. And I like being limited to 140 characters, somehow — it lends the whole thing a haiku-like flavor.

Anyhow, all that to say that I’ve added a widget to the bottom of the left sidebar that has my most recent Twitter updates in it. If you just can’t wait for the next blog post, you can look there to see what I am up to.

More substantive blogging will resume tomorrow now that classes are over with.
