I'm now on Twitter

As with all kinds of "social" stuff, I'm late to jump onto the bandwagon. I transformed my personal homepage to a blog long after blogging turned cool.
I joined Facebook long after everyone else did. Seemed like a waste of time to me. Eventually I kind of realized the value of it, it keeps you connected to a lot of people that you otherwise would not keep in touch with. Although it's true it can easily become a time sink. You just need to learn to filter out the noise.
So this Twitter thing came along. For a long while I thought it was pretty pointless. Well, recently I've been reading some people's twitter regularly and kind of realized the value. It's a great way to share thoughts, links and short insights to other people that might be interested. Things you have no time to write a lengthy blog post about, or don't really make sense in blog form. Of course, it's a matter of following the right people. So I finally signed up. And I even tweeted. I have no idea how frequently I will tweet, but I'm sure I will have something of interest once in while.
An unfortunate consequence of being late is that the name "Humus" tends to be taken. So I will be known as "_Humus_" on twitter. Back in 1998 or so when I picked up this nickname it was rather unique. It was never taken if I signed up for something. Guess I didn't compete with as many people back then as with the global mainstream services of today, besides probably being more of an early adopter back then.

I don't know why, but I've bunched your site together with Maddox's (maddox.xmission.com). Every few months I'll be reminded of one and immediately think of the other. That's basically how I've been able to keep up with your posts over the years.
Now that you're on Twitter, I'll be able to check up on you more often. I hope you'll be making posts more frequently.
Well that's all I have to say. Have a good one,
