Twitter, Defcon, Geotaging

So I caved and succumbed to the lameness of Twitter mostly for the purposes of attending and coordinating things at large events. It’ll be hard to flow of people and places at events like Defcon without it.

Mostly I view twitter as a noise application. It posts “microblogging,” a term which people with near zero attention spans seem to say a lot, updates everywhere, it uses the @username to respond to things. I view it as the ALL CAPS communication medium.

So I’m not in love, but I will use it via Twibble on my Nokia n95 to geotag myself and figure out where people I know are having fun when there are a few thousand people milling around.

There will also be flashmob like behavior coordinated by a con twitter id during the event itself.
