LINKBLOG for May 8, 2008
[TWITTERED] Seeing (almost) the whole world having a seemingly good time on Twitter, I today decided to give it a try --> see sidebar, or my Twitter profile. First impressions are: this is overflowing with more and sometimes less interesting content. What's your opinion (via Twitter maybe?): is this Blogging / Communication / Chatting 2.0, or is it completely over the top?

Good question, as it becomes more and more a second job to remain relevant in this industry - or am I just getting old :-)
