Twitter, Plurk, and Blogs–Oh My!


Web/Tech / Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

Stop the insanity. Or is Web 2.0 taking over? First it was the internet–everybody had a static web page featuring their picture, their interests, and a few links. Next came weblogs. Your picture, your interest, a few links, plus comments and daily updates. Now we have SMS-based micro-blogging platforms in the form of Twitter, Plurk and others. People are posting updates all the time, whenever and wherever they might be. Instant pictures, interests, links, comments, updates–conversations that take place everyday all day, in real time and between time. It seems that we’re always connected all the time and we can’t get enough of it.

Well, let’s make an experiment of it and see if the time spent twittering and plurking can’t be put to better use by connecting with people who have an interest in more than just 140 characters worth of content.
