We’ll see…I am still undeclared at this point!
So, can Twitter survive when it is quickly getting a reputation for being a failure? Will they be able to compete in a market that is quickly seeing better and more stable alternatives to Twitter?
Lately, Twitter has also been experiencing several technical difficulties. Whenever I click on my account, it delivers a message saying that it is over capacity. It is frustrating, especially when updating posts. Hopefully, they will iron out the kinks soon.
However, there is a new service called Plurk. You should check it out, because it is basically the same thing as Twitter but much more fun/easy to use. We are seeing the advent of new technologies everywhere.
Here is the list of Baseball’s Best Game 7s from Sports Illustrated. One of the best pictures is from the Red Sox vs. Yankees Game 7 in 2003, where the Yankees won their 39th American League Pennant. The picture is Aaron Boone smacking a lead off homerun. There are also other teams represented, so I do not appear biased towards the New York Yankees (which is the best team in the American League…in my opinion).
This video calls on anyone who uses eBay, Amazon.com or other online stores to speak out against a sneaky attempt to build a government database on American citizens. Senator Chuck Grassley slipped a provision in the Senate Housing bill that would allow the federal government to track the online transactions of millions of Americans. Scary stuff.
On Wednesday, there was a Financial Services Committee Markup Session to discuss HR 5767, Payments System Protection Act, which is cosponsored by Rep. Barney Frank and Rep. Ron Paul. Rep. Paul explains why he opposes big government and Internet censorship regarding Internet poker.
Advocacy groups and some legal experts told Congress on Wednesday that it was unreasonable for federal officials to search the laptops of United States citizens when they re-enter the country from traveling abroad.
If you are not on a terrorist watch list or a suspected terrorist, I feel it is unfair for government officials to check your laptop files, etc. It is just another example of the government prying into our lives.
