December 24, 2008

In the spirit of passing time at Christmas, and following on from a heated discussion about the meaning and robustness of community in online environments, I invited 100 of my 1,276 current Twitter followers to fill in a quick survey cunningly designed to provide a fairly wonky measure of community allegiance.

May 18, 2008

Usually I'm not big on tapping the A list and I certainly try to avoid boys clubs and bun fights, so I guess this is my makeup post.
