No Really, What Are You Doing? 22 Jan 2007

Like an idiot-moth to a bright lamp, I've somehow been sucked into the latest social web 2.0 zomgzomg craze, I think it's just a subconscious geek's desire to be cool, but regardless, you can find my twitter stream at

Most of what's attracted me to the site has been their very simple API, which has allowed me to get an application called "Twitterer" up and running in less than a few hours (1, 2, 3). I've not yet released it (no icon!) but i've been using it for the past two days and am quite pleased with it (if I may say so myself). In fact, if you have read this before, you might notice a recent trend in posts about webservices...ahem.

Twitter allows the masses to finally answer the question "what are you doing?"

To which the masses can reply in a most resounding fashion "nothin really."
