My Twitter updates for 2007-09-12

Wednesday, September 12th, 2007
  1. Headed home – Red Robin cravings are killing me – I might have to kill them back!
  2. The car in front of me on 520 literally just CAUGHT ON FIRE!
  3. My Red Robin craving is vanquished, but as a result I am 100% beached on the couch.
  4. Watching the TNG finale: All Good Things.
  5. Poking around some more with Twitter Tools and configuring the del.icio.us auto-poster. Nothing beats automatic display of gradual content.
  6. See – I wasn’t kidding: the car in front of me on the way home really did CATCH ON FIRE! http://tinyurl.com/yutzlr
  7. Laying in bed watching bonus content from the Red Dwarf complete collection.
  8. Showered and dressed but not really awake…
  9. Feeling surprisingly human again after my second cup of coffee.
  10. Waiting for the worlds slowest printer…
  11. Headed to lunch. Mmmmm lunch!
  12. Writing overly-detailed support guides.
  13. Cheering our resident iPhone hacker on in his battle for server optimization!
  14. Driving home… I wonder if the car in front of me will catch fire again?

Gradual content creation

Wednesday, September 12th, 2007

I’ve been experimenting around with Twitter Tools and the del.icio.us auto-post blogging tool. They make for an easy way to gradually add content to Futurist Now without having to actually sit down and write a full post. The web links from the day that interest me can go through a workflow into my del.icio.us account, and inane babble about my day fits quite nicely into Twitter. I’ve placed both of these into the new infobits category to make it neat and tidy.

Not that I’ll stop writing real content by any means – just an easy way to share things that interest me day to day.

Update 1 week later: It was a great idea while it lasted, but I’ve pulled the twitter and del.icio.us posts as I’ve gotten a surprising amount of negative feedback from my users. Lesson learned.
