I was worried that I might be missing out on something important ... until I saw this educational video.

I do have a Twitter account, but I have never tweeted anything. I made it because I wanted to know what it is, and because NASA is Twittering about things that I find interesting (though I'm not really following that they are tweeting).

What surprised me is that a few people have subscribed to my Twitter account, even though I've never tweeted a single tweet and I have no idea who those people are. Why would those people subscribe to my Twitter feed? Strange.

We're doing Scrum now at work. We used to call it "XP" but really it's just Scrum.

Generally, there's at least one of them who will just blindly imitate whatever he's up to.

OK, that was fun. I am bored now. Cool I was able to get twittering out of my system without even signing up for an account

OK, that did it for me. Now I've met my life-time quota of tweeting (creeting? crittering? whatever!)

Actually, Twitter is important - if not for any person in particular, then certainly as a mass phenomenon.

I have to admit to being a kitchen geek -- I grind my own meat for burgers and I've found that a combination of 2/3 brisket and 1/3 pork makes for a great tasting and juicy burger.

I can post the Caramel Bread Pudding if interested. It's phenomenal and easy!

Yes, I'd love the see the recipe!

We used to do things like that -- grinding beef, making fresh pasta -- but the kiddies don't give us the time these days. Someday we'll get back to it.

I'm spending all of my day trying to squeeze in a small mountain of apples, oranges and pencils ... the idea of telling "the void" what I'm doing just seems like a hassle. And I cannot imagine anyone would be even slightly interested.

This reminds me of companies that come to the employees and say "we need to know how much time you spend doing certain tasks so we can bill it appropriately" and they would have it broken down to email, project X, Y or Z and within each project there would be development, architecture, research, etc. And the employees would have a hissy fit about doing it.

And now they do even more voluntarily?

At one job, my boss was curious about what I did all day and asked me to journal it. I was actually glad to do it because I kinda felt like I was doing a hundred different things every day. 24 hours later I showed him three pages of a legal pad that I had filled out to a resolution of a few minutes - 1 line per event. He looked at the first 15 lines of the first page and was satisfied. I suppose this could have been a twitter-ish thing. But while fun to do for one day, I couldn't imagine doing it every day.

 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
