Tweet Sixteen (Batch#: 1; Topic: Twitter; #Tweets: 16; #Comments: 6)
Twitter(1): "Anything goes" into Twitter->Go to 'tweet scan' and search for what u want->Subscribe to RSS on that filter/results 10:35 AM June 02, 2008 from web
Twitter(2): No [longer] need to pick Feeds from the Blogoshpere. Each "Blogject" to log itself directly into Twitter, and then see Twitter(1) 10:37 AM June 02, 2008 from web
Twitter(3): The problem: two kinds of info for the same Topic: conscious and unconscious blahblah tweets. That's y we need tags on tweets 10:40 AM June 02, 2008 from web
Twitter(4): These tags will be "Meta-Data" tags, indicating that the Tweet is an update of a reflection and !only of a projection 10:41 AM June 02, 2008 from web
- Wrong! Actually, we don't need tags. The length limit of a Tweet makes it inherently structured for meta-data – it's nothing but a series of keywords connected by coord. Conjunctions. No content, just pointers.
Twitter(5):Given that Blogjects are tweeting too (objects becoming part of the "conversation"), "consciousness of humanity" no longer holds 08:32 AM June 04, 2008 from web
- Here I'm "wronging out" my article. Twtr will not be the consciousness of Humanity, simply bcs Machines r alrdy part of the convrstion
Twitter(6): Unless, of course, Humanity is to be understood as a mixture of man and machine. We're already blended into each other. 08:34 AM June 04, 2008 from web
- 2 kinds of theoreticians on this interesting subject of man/machine familiarity: Machines, being the creations of Man are to be seen as his natural siblings; others, like Guattari, who see Man as a container, a meta-data, a tag, a pointer: Man can be an animal, can be a machine, can be an ephemeral moment, or an eternal word.
Twitter(7): As for History vs. Real-Time (i.e. can Twitter reflects the History of mankind or just its current, real-time snapshot) 08:44 AM June 04, 2008 from web
- If Twitter is meta-data, can it point to things that happen in the past too or is it more oriented towards Present consciousness?
Twitter(8): We say History & Real-Time "exist". Existence is conversation. Any conversation goes through the mind - a thought's product. 08:49 AM June 04, 2008 from web
Twitter(9): In any givn time, parts of Humanity reflect on its Past, others deal with Present, others thinking Future. Twtr will have it all 08:51 AM June 04, 2008 from web
Twitter(10): Making sure History is part of tweet scan: Plato, Inquisition, Descartes, Hiroshima, Churchill, Holocaust, les frères Lumière 09:26 AM June 04, 2008 from web
Twitter(11): Steve Gillmor is feeling in his guts the "Track" necessity, and I'm certain (QED style) that he's right: (cont. @Twitter12) 10:19 AM June 06, 2008 from web
Twitter(12): 1. "Track" must be restored. 2. It MUST have the min possible delay: Real-time pub/sub 3. It must allow any combination of words 10:20 AM June 06, 2008 from web
Twitter(13):These may !be the unanimous reqs for 0608, still they're the absolute necessities 4 vry near future. So we'd better get ready 10:20 AM June 06, 2008 from web
- We tend to underestimate the mission-criticality of technology. The man in the elevator becomes instantaneously hysteric when electricity breaks. Same thing with Twtr: someone, somewhere, is entirely life/biz-dependent on a RT response.
Twitter(14): Enterprise Tweeting is not about brdcsting one's presence; it's about tweeting '@Enterprise customr 233' & getting a real-time rply 06:53 PM June 08, 2008 from twhirl
Twitter(15): and it's about 'tracking' critical info, from whatever device, location etc. 06:54 PM June 08, 2008 from twhirl
Twitter(16): "Twitter [and alike] set the standard. Now a direct & fierce competition comes into play", Le Corbusier, 1923 09:28 AM June 10, 2008 from twhirl
- Already now, there are dozens of Twttr clones; it made me reckon, once and 4 all, that no one, nothing, will ever rule the entire World. I feel much better towards Google ephemeral dominance now.
