I've given in and created a Twitter account. You may have noticed it over there on the sidebar. The goal is not to keep readers up to date on what I had for breakfast (eggs with sausage, onions, and diced habanero peppers topped with Sriracha sauce--my favorite by the way). The primary goal is to share interesting links in a timely way or make comments that aren't worthy of a full post. I also like it because the 140-character limit forces me to be tight and pithy with my thoughts. It's a good exercise for the brain.

    I haven't gotten a twitter account but now that you have, along with some other bloggers I follow that are getting on it, I might have to give in. I have appreciated your links also.

    I'm late to the party, but the Twitter concept can be powerful. Check out this TED talk.

    You dice your habaneros? You're a thug. I'm still mincing, but will try to step it up a notch to compete

  5. Brian Burke says:

    Josh-True. I guess I meant minced. I guess you'd need a pretty big pepper to dice it!

    I find writing in haiku form a good exercise for the brain as well: a habanero/slathered with sriracha sauce?/gilding the lily.

    There's a blog for Navy football I follow. The guy who runs it writes a haiku after every game.

    Here's the one from Navy's bowl victory over Mizzou:

    Navy thirty-five,
    Mizzou thirteen, and it was
    Not even that close.

    And a bonus:

    cries this mizzou grad.
