I (Finally) Joined Twitter

I finally joined twitter.

Whilst my little brother has been telling me for years that I should join twitter, I have continuously resisted.

Here is the conversation that made me cave:

Me> Twitter is stupid. It’s just IRC. I’ve been on IRC for nearly 20 years, and I’m in around 30 channels on 4 servers. Why would I want to subscribe to someone and see everything they say for every channel they are in? That’s crazy talk.

X> Okay. Sure. Twitter is just IRC. I get that. So let me ask you this. Are you on any IRC channels with Adrian Cockcroft? Brendan Gregg? John Allspaw?

Me> Well.. no.

X> Would you like to be?

Me> Well.. yes.

So here I am: @systemtemplar. I’m still learning the ropes.

Also I’m planning on updating this webpage a bit more often that twice a year, so we’ll see how that goes. I have another LISA writeup that I’m working on. So there will be at least that. :)
