Idėjų debesėlis ištwiteriuoja

Paskutiniu metu lydi nušvitimai technologijose. Po metų mąstymo netikėtai perpratau iPad:

In 1967, American consumers were introduced to the new, must have item for their kitchens: the microwave oven. Looking just at the specs, a microwave didn’t make sense to many. Surely it won’t work quite like an oven, or quite like a stove. It’s like something in the middle. How could we need that?

And then customers bought them, took them home, and something special happened. The microwave didn’t have to be a regular oven or stove; it was a wholely new category of cooking device that made cooking accessible to even the least talented guy on earth.

Ask anyone who is not a nerd or a computer hobbyist and they will tell you that they hate them with the same passion they love their iPhones and iPads. The answer is (…) that anyone [is] able to grab it, and start playing with it right away, without any training whatsoever. They realized that reading eBooks or browsing the internet from their couch was nice on a tablet. They found things they would have never thought to do on a computer were fun and simple. [An iPad is] a good way to consume content, like web pages, books and Netflix movies. (…) [N]ow instead of waiting for your computer to boot, you can read the news, type a short document, and get on with your day all in the time your aging desktop takes to boot.

We are witnessing the beginning of a new computing era, after the punch cards, the mainframe, the command line PC and the mouse with its graphical user interface.

O šį rytą pabudau suvokęs, kam reikalingas Twitteris. Penkeri metai, bet suvokiau. Twitteris yra išskirtinai kūrėjų įrankis — žmonių, kurie daro ką nors toliau savo nosies: kuria menus, dėsto, organizuoja, mąsto. Jiems Twitteris yra real-time būdas pasiekti toliau savo nosies, tiksliau, pasiekti savo žiūrovą.

Tai, ką vos prieš savaitę pradėjau kaip Idėjų debesėlį, ir yra Twitterio formatas, tik įgyvendintas gremėzdiškai, brute-force apeinant apribojimus. Tos pačios mažos idėjos iš didelio pasaulio — tik įkalintos WordPress, be real-time galimybės pasiekti savo žiūrovą. Štai ką suvokiau šį rytą.

Todėl Idėjų debesėlis išsikelia į @qbilius. (Ir, žinoma, viskas automatiškai keliaus į ir Facebooką.)
