On my way home from Israel

I have a TON I will say about my Israel trip, but in the meantime I just wanted to shout out my fellow travelers who’ve already been doing awesome blogging and stuff about our trip. There are going to be spinouts for weeks from this trip. Heck, just look at the list of tools that alpha geeks use (which was produced on this trip).

I’m too exhausted to do any blogging. Might explain why I’ve been doing so much Twittering. It takes far less effort to write 140 characters at a time than to put together a cogent post.

  1. Props to Craig Newmark for being the only one of the pack that didn’t list Facebook usage.
    :)

    Facebook is fail.

    That aside, I totally applaud this Israel run… I’ll be commenting in the other Israel updates soon… just wanted to give you (and company) a quick textular pat on the back.

  4. I don’t know about you, but “real conversations” aren’t thoroughly thought through, endlessly analyzed and spell checked. They are more like twitter or quick email/IM exchanges. But hey, everyone always bitches about progress and how they used to walk uphill to school both ways, you old fogey.

  7. Or better yet, why not just have a camera implanted right into your forehead, and then you won’t have to do *anything*! Don’t worry about dislodging any brain matter, your frontal lobe will have been wasted away by that time anyway, since you keep telling us more and more in recent weeks that you have no more desire to actually sit and think about anything you’re writing.

    We used to have real conversations with real people. We used to sit down and write letters. Now we have 1500 people in a virtual Twitter room looking at blocks of gibberish no more than 140 characters. And no one’s really communicating, they just think they are as long as they’re all connected to the hive.

    Can no one see that we’re moving backwards? We’re communicating with more people, spread geographically further apart, but…We’re. Not. Saying. Anything.

    In a couple of years I think we’re going to be reduced to communicating though a crude series of grunts, emoticons and digital smoke signals.

  10. was funny :) to see you cap your twitter follows the other day after you had been raving about following, but clearly the limit had to come at some point before it’s just too many.
    if there was a way to tab groups of followers it may be more managable, but not sure if that would defeat the purpose.

  13. Do oral blogging.

    We are still stuck in the Web 1,0 mindset.

    Just create an mp3, steam of consciousness podcast for those days when one wants to update but too tired to manually type

  16. Now that you are employed by a legitimate publication company, you should practice writing more professionally on your blog. “TON”. “shout out” “awesome” “and stuff”? How old are you?
