(Deutsch) Joel und Twitter – er schreibt mir aus der Seele…

Ein auch ansonsten recht interessanter Blog-Eintrag von Joel Spolsky, aber bei Twitter schreibt er mir wirklich aus der Seele:

Although I appreciate that many people find Twitter to be valuable, I find it a truly awful way to exchange thoughts and ideas. It creates a mentally stunted world in which the most complicated thought you can think is one sentence long. It’s a cacophony of people shouting their thoughts into the abyss without listening to what anyone else is saying. Logging on gives you a page full of little hand grenades: impossible-to-understand, context-free sentences that take five minutes of research to unravel and which then turn out to be stupid, irrelevant, or pertaining to the television series Battlestar Galactica. I would write an essay describing why Twitter gives me a headache and makes me fear for the future of humanity, but it doesn’t deserve more than 140 characters of explanation, and I’ve already spent 820.

Stimmt, Twitter habe ich nie verstanden und werde es auch nie wirklich verstehen können… Aber was unternimmt man gegen den sozialen Druck? Sich einfach damit abfinden, daß Freunde einen für hinterwäldlerisch halten?
