Being a high-tech guy by day, I find that I spend most of my time developing technology and not taking advantage of it. Doing woodworking, and even a little teaching woodworking (via videos), on the side, I am always looking to keep up with the latest trend.
That being said, Todd C got me started on this whole Twitter thing. I have to admit, even as a high tech guy, I am not sure I really get the whole concept. And now that I have been at it for a few days, I am only lukewarm about the whole idea. Do other woodworkers really want a play-by-play of my woodworking? I really do not mind snapping a photo and typing a quick message on my iPhone from the shop, but it would be all for naught if I am just taking to a wall, or in this case, talking to empty cyberspace.
What do LumberJocks think? Would you really want to follow a guys Woodworking ‘tweets”? Would you do it just for the fun of it? Would you do it if you expected to learns a tip or two?
Here is a link to my “tweets”. Mostly it has been following all the turning I have been doing, and some preparation for a home improvement project that has been thrusted upon me (fixing some old, inactive termite damage), as well as a few anecdotes and friendly pokes at Todd. Let me know what you think.
