Chickybabe For The Pent Up Geek

  1. I’m amazed that speech-to-text systems have yet to exist on mobile phones as a standard. It would make SMS on the go so much easier.
  2. While reports of its death are greatly exaggerated, humanity’s need for the quick and easy will mean the eventual stagnation of blogosphere. Already have too many good blogs fallen prey to both limited time and declining interest. I mourn for simpler, better times.
  3. When people complain that they Twitter more than they blog, it may probably be because they have nothing worthwhile to say in the first place.
  4. The world has become a far more easier place to disconnect lately, not because of the busy schedule I’ve been keeping, but because people tend to make choices which force me to press the “ignore”, “block” or “unfollow” button.
  5. Last but not least. The new geek anthem. Much more suitable for those of you understand the weird and whacky niche of a world that we live in.

Doing a “Chickybabe” refers to doing a list of random thoughts and is named in honour of ChickyBabe who awed me with her style of writing, especially when she did her set of random thoughts which this is named after.

  1. I find that I tweet a lot, much more frequent than I blog, and it’s mostly because I don’t have time to write proper blog posts on everything that I tweet (links to share, observations, announcements etc). Which means exactly the opposite. I have too many things to say, but too little time.

    People that have nothing substantial to say? They stopped blogging to pick up tweeting, then in the end, they just stopped tweeting.

    From my experience, many blogs perished simply because they were started in the first place to conform to the hype. Now that blogging is no longer “in”, people stopped caring about it. The blogs that are left, are the hardy ones, made by people who started blogging for the right reasons. I think that is for the best.

  2. Zurairi AR: As opposed to picking up Twitter because it’s part of the hype? A year ago, the same people who asked me what’s the point of Twitter are the same people now addicted to it. There is just no denying that people will jump into fads as soon as it hits mainstream. I tend to have a lot of things to say as well, but there is only so much you can say in 160 characters. The expression limit is the reason why I only Tweet as necessary. You have to strip down everything just to get a message across and most people even don’t do it that well too.

    I guess, if you really have something to say, time won’t stop you because you truly have to say what you want to say, and are not limited by your words. Contrary to a world that just wants to make do with the (increasingly useless) information overload, I miss the days when you can just write because you enjoy writing, and read because you enjoy reading.
