I’m feeling a bit under the weather, so I’m staying home, keeping close to the computer, one eye on the Plinth, the other on Twitter. Being part of the Twitter discussion, following along with the plinth activity, adds an interesting layer to the event. Some of it’s interesting, some amusing, some informative, and only very rarely is it snarky.
As of this afternoon, I’ve contributed enough Twitter comments related to the plinth to rank me on the big board of most frequent #oneandother commenters. You can see it there on the screen shot I took of my laptop at 3 o’clock-ish. (There I am, #9!) A small, and some would say pathetic, achievement.
As a bonus, ’round about 3 p.m., I responded to a Tweet sent out by my web idol David Pogue (technology columnist for the NYTimes) whom I think has the greatest job and the best sense of humor in doing it. He liked it enough to re-Tweet it, so I consider this day a productive one, even though I’m not getting a damn thing done that I’d planned to.
