33. Meh, it will lose it's shine after a while...
I was just reading about how at&t (fuck them) crashed yesterday because of all the fools twittering at sxsw here in Austin.

I also look at a number of this instant messaging companies. They will vanish after a time, when the public realizes that there is no real worth to them. It is a sort of a bubble.

It reminds me of a lot of the tech bubble in some ways. It will run it's course and those that actually have a business plan and actually make money will survive. All the rest will vanish.

twitter will probably survive for a while on name alone, but until they can figure out how to make money, they will keep losing money. Somebody just pumped in a huge amount of money to keep them going, I wonder how they expect to get a return on it.

It's all so very amusing. Useless people talking about useless crap that amounts to nothing.
