I've been watching twitter for a while now, amused at the ability for it to keep people appraised of what you are doing at the moment, if they really care. I didn't think it was really worth it.

Until I read this post last night which was linked off of some site that I forgot (probably reddit but I did think it was from the every wonderful Arachaia, which if you are a programmer, you should be paying attention to.)

I just couldn't resist...

So, if you want to see what I am doing, RIGHT NOW (well what I just did, it waits for the command to complete before sending it off to twitter), you can follow along right here.

I'm only enabling it on a few of my terminal windows for now, watching me constantly run mutt and offlineimap would get a bit boring.

I wonder how long it's going to be before I type in my password accidentally to this thing. Or until twitter bans me. Any odds on which is going to happen first?

I pity anyone who subscribes to this twit feed, they are going to start hating me very quickly, like the Portland, Oregon local feed already has...
