Great Dixter and twitter

I went home for a family meal and beforehand we went to Great Dixter. I took some pictures though I'm beginning to wonder if I should just get a Flickr account given the results for the Great Dixter tag on Flickr.

Also today (via Chris Chapman) I discovered twitter. Twitter appears to be a system for people to write very short comments much like IRC or IM except on the web e.g. Chris's page. Also you're encouraged to write in txt spk it seems and to prefix entries with @username when targetting them. It just seems to be inane dribble (I'd link to more but you get the idea).

I suppose it's bound to succeed. It does after all have a name that ends in an r and after dumping the X from cool names, r is now it.

Some times I really don't get the Internet.


Just when I think the web can't get any more pointless or inane... someone points me at something like this.
