I have decided this will be my last post to this (or probably any other) weblog. My first post was in 2003. I started the weblog as an experiment to find out what all the excitement was about (particularly on Robert Scoble's part) and Radio Userland seemed like the obvious platform to use at the time. I have dutifully plunked down my $29.95 per year since that time.
The process became cathartic and even though I had and have very few readers, the price and the time spent was worth it. I have lost my fervour for it though and lately the process has become a chore with no redeeming qualities. I am using FriendFeed as my catharsis tool of choice these days (follow my stream here) and have decided not to renew my subscription to Radio Userland. I am not sure what will happen to the weblog -- it could survive and continue to be accessible but could also easily disappear. I would prefer for it to endure but am comfortable if it disappears forever.
Goodbye -- see you on FriendFeed.

Just wanted to say something positive about Lowepro customer service. I am an owner and user of a number of Lowepro camera products and have nothing bad to say about any of them. Recently I lost one of the attachment straps for my Voyager C camera strap (great product by the way) and was disappointed when the local distributor said that no parts were available for sale. The only recourse seemed to be throwing the remaining pieces away. The support person though had something to ease my disappointment -- would it be ok if she just shipped a brand new strap to me for free.
My second recent very postitive experience with top quality customer support.
Kudos to Lowepro and their Canadian distributor.

Whoever is in charge at Twitter really needs to knock some heads. Or maybe the person in charge needs to get head knocked. Last night the service apparently had "maintenance" -- today as predictable as clockwork the service is down for an extended period.
So what is the problem ?-- departure of the CTO hasn't solved the problem. Evan Williams claims that the base technology "Ruby on Rails" is not the problem and is there for the long term.
Maybe the problem is Evan Williams? Maybe Twitter has a severe case of "founderitis"?
(something technically wrong? -- I think the problem is deeper)
