Tempest, I am Your Teapot
Call me the mouse that roared.
Or just someone who was standing in the middle of the theater shouting “Wait! This could result in a fire!” and causing a small amount of pandemonium in the seats around me.
I still don’t like the concept of TwitterPacks being in wiki form. I still don’t like the term pack. But I will state as clearly and for the record as I can right now:
The intent behind Twitter Packs was a benevolent one and a good one and I don’t think it was some nefarious plot. I just don’t believe that the implementation was/will be ultimately as beneficial or successful as it could’ve been had it been done otherwise.
But you know what? Chris Brogan is a generally good guy. He was trying to help people to hear that conversation I’ve been raving on and on about in Twitter. So can we get away from my (and anyone else’s) misconstrual of the word “pack” and move on to other important things?
Honestly, it’s not like my refusing to participate matters a whit to anyone in the bigger scope of things. I’m an intermittent blogger with a really cool Twitter circle – but you can have that too, and if you don’t know where to start, well, maybe TwitterPacks is for you… it’s not my cup of tea, but not everyone drinks tea.
It’s not the way I’d recommend going about it, but maybe if I have a way, it would be best if I blog about that, rather than about perceived issues with someone else’s way, eh?
