after resisting the Facebook status updates for months, i've recently found that i like them for certain things. i had to use the Hide feature to clear away the clutter of updates about what video game someone was getting frustrated by, etc..

Facebook-style Status block for Drupal


now, on a good day, i can check in for a minute and find a couple seeds of thoughts, maybe an enigmatic grain of a future line from a poet friend, and it's enjoyable enough to read what tea someone is listening to with what music as a backdrop.

i don't know or mind how many friends are Hide-ing my own posts, but i've found it worthwhile over the past month or so as a place to enter single lines from time to time. i don't know where else i would have written that i'd come across local honey made from snowberry pollen or about my surprise at getting a call from my great-uncle for info on nattō, and i don't think things like that warranted full blog entries or individual e-mails to friends.

that said, i would hate to see Click Opera switch to a Twitter feed. the long-form and the micro-form each have their places.
