Some details you won't miss. You won't miss clinking keys, you won't miss the click of the latch or the smack of lips eating toast at the quiet breakfast table on a wet, cold winter morning. But when they come back, they come back like the smells from the scratch and sniff books you read as a child and now read to your own children, like the smell of the house you grew up in or of your favorite soup that Mom still makes for you.
Why bring this up? Because Twitter is like this. Well, it can be like this. Something ought to happen to enable it to be more like this. We live in a time when we can physically live further from our loved ones and still talk to them or see them on Skype on a daily basis. Incredible, yes, but still not, to steal a word from Apple's Steve Jobs, "magical." And yet Twitter allows us to live apart and know incredibly personal details - things we likely would have missed had we been standing right there - about those same people we care most about. Like we're reading their personal email, over their shoulder; reading their thoughts in the shower; listening to their music as they're hearing it make them happy.
My goal in life will be to enable the world to share more of themselves, not less, on Twitter. Yeah, just to see what people can learn from each other and about themselves through this remarkable new medium.

Hey, and Harper's wanted me to tell you that you can Subscribe today for $16.97/yr and get instant web access to 159 years of Harper's Magazine. But will you ever read it all? Maybe they should charge you $5 and hope you never come to the site, just graze once or twice. I'd forget to come back, truth be told. Plunk down my money and I would just plain forget. Maybe I could pay them to remind me to come back and read? I guess if you're a real reading type person, $16.97 per year will sound just over the top outrageously cool. But you know what would have been even more fun? Paying $34.07 per year, because it kinda spells LOVE if you look at it upside down and have bad eyesight. I wonder if you could actually pay that amount...ya know, just to show your affection and spread your cash around. Click the link below and try to ask them! Enjoy!!!
