Microblogging Your Day in 140 Character Installments 

I use Twitter. I use Plurk.

One could say I'm a microblogging addict.


It goes something like this.

I wake up in the morning and I post something pithy to my Twitter and then I jump over to Plurk and post something pithy there (all of this via my Crackberry, of course). In the background via magical internet forces, what I posted in Twitter lands in my Facebook "what am I doing now" status. And then, by the magical forces of FriendFeed, my Plurk ends up on my Facebook wall.

So, in a mere two 140 character posts people know things like: my daughter is being very slow today, that it's a beautiful fall morning in Vermont or that I'm a bit stressed about the economy and am thinking about putting money in my mattress.

Yes, I know it seems a bit odd. Why would anyone care? Why would I want to share that information with people I don't even know?  Very good questions...
