I don’t post new things as often as I used to couple of months ago, but it’s not all my fault. FriendFeed and Google Reader (especially the newest feature of adding notes to shared things) create so much better space for rapid thoughts exchange than a blog, that I comment, link and share most of the things over there, and that includes even making scientific collaborations. This blog is going to loose a little of its dynamics, but already after few weeks I see advantages (like saving time) of moving micro-posts to World Wide Talk Show, as Robert Scoble calls FF.
Amount of interesting conversations at FF and Twitter combined is so huge that I don’t do random web browsing anymore (and I’m not the only one who says that). And I don’t even subscribe to thousands of people – it’s less than a hundred in total on both services. This list includes scientists (here’s probably already outdated list at Nature’s blog Nascent of scientist at FF), technologists and other interesting chaps.
So join us at Twitter or FriendFeed – my login at both services is “freesci”. Life is about interesting conversations, isn’t it? 🙂
UPDATE: Pierre Lindenbaum has obviously similar thoughts.
