I’ve had a Twitter account for a while, though I never really made much use of it. I recently signed up for an Identi.ca account as well. I was pointed to this video which tries to show how Identi.ca isn’t just another Twitter. My understanding is Identi.ca is mainly an interop and OSS play, which certainly appeals to me. Identi.ca also lets you use your OpenID to log in and set up an account, which is cool (despite OpenID’s inherent phishing problems that its designers have chosen to ignore).
But, as we all know, the value of such a tool mainly lies in network effects. So, who has an Identi.ca or Twitter account? Feel free to subscribe to my feed or drop me a note so I can find you.
Since I don’t write (publicly) in this blog so much anymore, perhaps microblogging will be my next public “thing.”
