I have been experimenting with Twitter. It has introduced me to a number of interesting discussions of which I would otherwise have been unaware. I’ve been introduced to the world of social media trainers and consultants who work for businesses and not-for-profit organizations. All of this is a long way from philosophy and a long way from hackery – maybe a little closer to politics. I have not spent much time with marketing types since Thinking Machines days; my attitudes seem to have changed a lot since then.
