Microblogging

In case it wasn’t clear from the past three entries posted here, I have started to microblog on Identi.ca – the open version of Twitter. I’m still trying to figure out whether I should have my posts also mirrored on twitter, where most of other microbloggers I know are gathered – oh for openmicroblogging in Twitter!

I had started aggregating my microblogs on this blog through feedwordpress, but found the results too noisy – in particular since this blog is syndicated on the W3C Team blogs’ galaxy where the microblogs would end up filling all the entries. I’m still looking into finding a good way to show my microblogs on this site, though; for the time being, they are a link away.

Note that Twitter doesn’t think my name can contain more than 20 characters – a curious echo to a similar problem I experienced with Air France.

We’ll see how that microblogging experiment works out; I had already been using Twitter from time to time on the mobiweb account without much regularity, but from my short experimentation, I think a personal microblog has more chances to get used.
