I used to post a weekly column called Waypoints, consisting of GPS news briefs and items of interest to GPS aficionados, typically things that might not warrant an individual post. But it got to be too much, compiling bookmarks all week and then writing it up.
Yet since I follow over a hundred RSS feeds daily, there's just too much cool information not to share it. So I've been thinking about alternative ways of doing this, which are less time consuming and at the same time, more immediate.
What I've come up with is Twitter. With a 140 character limit, I can't get too verbose. I can post quickly and folks can get the information right away. I'm not sure if I should call this Waypoints, Twaypoints, or what.
Different ways to follow
Most updates will come in the a.m., as that's when I do most of my feed reading.
I'll try not to do the inane twittering, with tweets saying things like "I'm up having breakfast." Of course, sometimes Twitter just cries out for a personal post, like this weekend when I had to wipe my hard drive unexpectedly. But I'll try to keep the irrelevancies (and computer crises) to a minimum.
UPDATE: I notice quite a few folks new to Twitter signing up today. There are a number of good Twitter clients out there (so you don't have to keep refreshing yiour home page). The one I'm using right now is Twhirl.
