From the Ones and Zeros of Twitter… Week 49 – 2009


An experiment in twitter posts. From the past week I’ve sent the following open conversations. It would be really nice if there was a nice little add on that cleaned up twitter posts for a certain amount of time, and then collected them into one blog post. In the meantime, I present for your reading pleasure … the following awesome, teeny conversations, and more insights about how much of a geek I can actually be.

@jchutchins Victor Von Doom is probably the best all encompassing villain. Fallen Heroes make the best villain. Redemptive villains for hero

@jchutchins Prefer foils, moriarty to holmes, joker to batman.

@norm_fisher Too bad there isn’t that option for Honkin’ large garage with detached house.

@gunandagirl I’ll eat it, no problem. But it’s turned from “all you can eat” to “what we think you can eat”. I call that FAIL.

New Island Sushi didn’t bring half of what we ordered at lunch. Not the first time either, guess it’s like sushi roulette.
