What would you bin first from 2.0?
Ben over at Noisy Decent Graphics has thrown out an all-users tag:
I have to say that I’m with him on his number 1 – Twitter. I tried twittering, but its just not right for me. In fact I’ve already dumped it.
The problem is that the texts I normally receive are requests for information like ‘what time is the meeting?’ which need replying to fairly quickly. I just can’t ignore the constant beeping that an active life on Twitter generates as somewhere in and amongst will be a text that actually needs replying to. But I can’t read every text/twitter as it comes in because I’m supposed to be, you know, concentrating at work.
But I’m NOT giving up without a fight:
Bloglines – I’m addicted. I love the mix of work/fun/friends feeds I’ve got on it and its ease of use. I’m also increasingly ‘clipping’ interesting blog posts rather than printing them out and storing them in my toolbox.
Flickr – not only a really useful photo storage/sharing tool but brilliant for sourcing (creative commons licensed of course) imagery for presentations.
WordPress – not because I love its usability (in fact its just got worse with a redesign), but because blogging (or quite often ranting in my case…) has connected me with so many interesting people.
Facebook – no, not for those ‘become a knight of the round table’ applications. Lots of my Uni mates moved to London and this is a great way of keeping in touch with them between visits.
What about you?
