So, in the last week I've signed up for,, snooth and delicious. And twitter a couple of weeks ago. This is getting silly. I was the one saying I was much too old to sign up for this stuff, that web whatever wasn't for me. But so far they have mostly passed the usefullness test. has a 50% hit rate for suggesting new artists at me, just based on my itunes collection, which is all over the place. I can only assume it will get better. Twitter is turning out to be fairly compulsive, and useful. Snooth (it's a wine listing and recommendation site ) might be good, too early to tell yet.

What happened to me having a mostly inactive LJ and no interest in this stuff!

Actually I know what happened and I know just who to blame. It's all your fault.

And I found myself having a conversation at work about user generated content sites and how to learn from them in the document management system world. Oh the shame!

Yes, but he wouldn't have been able to lead you that far astray if you hadn't wanted to follow...

Also, you're tolerance for adding new stuff to your list of 'must-haves' drops remarkably when you are being required to actually pay attention at work. I suspect your twittering will taper off once the real work kicks back in.

That last sentence may not have come out quite right. Twitter makes if very easy to insult people just by using the name of the app...

Yeah, my twittering from work will drop off once I actually get some work to do. Still doesn't stop it being very useful.

I'll agree, I picked up the dropped breadcrumbs awfully quickly!
