Kathy Sierra at Creating Passionate Users has asked the 21st century metaphysical question:
If my Cingular cell phone sends me a MySpace alert and I’m not there to get it, do I exist? But email, IMs, social networking, and blogs are nothing compared to the thing that may finally cause time as we know it to cease. I’m talking, of course, about Twitter.
I agree with her assessment: With all this information input in life today, the time between interruptions is rapidly approaching zero.
Although I confess a single visit some years ago to MySpace, and a single hour (well, OK, ninety minutes) of my life I will never get back at YouTube I’m going to call her advice on this good, and skip Twitter for as long as I can avoid it.
