I was thinking of joining Twitter, which is all the rage these days — all the cool kids are doing it! But the description of the service says:
A global community of friends and strangers answering one simple question: What are you doing?
… and I realized that we have just gone over that fuzzy line of utility with the web. Who in the hell is the least bit interested in what I am doing right now? I’m sitting in my cubicle, working, drinking tea, and reading newspaper websites.
That little tidbit of topical information was probably worth an IPO, don’t you think?
