Let’s watch the monopoly try to pickup cool points:
This attempt is the first in Microsoft’s recent $300,000,000 ad campaign buy, add $10,000,000 for Seinfeld and I’m left wondering how tight John Hodgman’s (the ‘I’m a PC’ guy, John Hodgman!) contract is with Apple.
I just hope all those “Saturn ringed brains at Microsoft  can come up with something” that does make our “computers chewy like cake”.
So you’ve heard about bebo, facebook, perhaps even digg.com and last.fm (because you’re cool like that). Well there is one web 2.0 property that many of you are still missing out on.
MM readers, with intent I point your browsers to twitter.com (I’ll pass on the suggestion that I am trying to bump the Gaylord post – I am).
Perhaps there is a good reason you keen MM readers are passing on twitter – it’s a tough sell.
Loosely sold to The Real Chris Porter as Facebook status updates on steroids, twitter surpasses the relatively passive status update. What twitter is, is a hotdog sized bun filled with a facebook style deli sausage meat, flooded with an IM mustard sauce and dipped in a sweet chili side of awesome. (On a somewhat related note, watch out for summer updates from the USA!)
Beyond the very loose suggestion that Twitter is a weird adaptation of the North Carolina Hot Dog, I’d like you to begin to understand what Twitter proposes.
Currently advertisement free, immature and prone to down time, Twitter is trying to connect your once IM and Facebook groups to your pocket. The true sell of twitter, readers, is that your mobile phone (that you were once so addicted to) becomes the mobile platform.
Readers, I urge you to play with twitter. If you too become a twitter guy/gal you can stay up to date on all things ‘us’ (between blog posts, of course) by following Philip (@chanstheorem), The Real Chris Porter (@sirchristo) and I (@cdburrows) on twitter.com.
