With all the talk of Twitter moving to an algorithmic system that promotes "popular" posts (read: things that make the company more money) I'm preparing to either abandon it, or use it less. In any event, I've started a Tumblog which can be found here. Not much there yet since I just started it today. … Continue reading New Locations Now Open
