I haven’t posted for a long while as I have been so busy.
I have had a lots of new and exciting experience through these few months, and now, a bit settled down to add a new post.

I’ve found an interesting tweet today, and want to post on it. I found Tom Wilson’s new post through Richard Florida’s Tweet, “Twisdom: Twitter Wisdom.”
As I wrote in my past post, I like the analogy to consider a social media referring to the real place, and was impressed with Tom’s latest post on Huffington Post, and quote is as follows.

The popular social media website Twitter has turned into the world’s greatest cocktail party, and no one has to clean up afterwards, or even pay the tab. It’s the new electronic campfire we sit around to talk and laugh and even sing. It’s an endless conversation like no other, and it’s just starting to pick up steam.

I feel like as if I’m in such a great cocktail party while I work at my office with colleagues all over the world, and that might be reason why I have such an actual feeling with the engaged information linkage by tweet and retweet.

I think it’s a spam site with a bad user interface.

Is “Tagged” a spam site, or what?


Now, new bars are going for “Speakeasy” look.

ON a nondescript block in Williamsburg, not far from the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, a new bar and restaurant called Rye opened last week.

There’s no sign out front. The facade, an artfully casual assemblage of old wooden slats, gives the place a boarded-up, abandoned look. It does have a street number, painted discreetly on a glass panel above the front doors, but that’s it. Like a suspect in a lineup, it seems to shrink back when observed.

There are a lot of bars like this right now. They can be found all over the United States, skulking in the shadows. Obtrusively furtive, they represent one of the strangest exercises in nostalgia ever to grip the public, an infatuation with the good old days of Prohibition.

So, their Web site is like this:

Bourbon & Branch, San Francisco
