Programmer’s Paradox Short Form

Mark Mzyk | September 9, 2009

Often there are ideas and bits of information that I’d like to share, but they’re either not formed enough or long enough for me to make them into a blog post.  They also want to be longer than 140 characters, so I can’t post them to Twitter.

This is a case of form dictating function.  Long form writing fits a blog.  Flash writing fits Twitter.  Short form writing fits ____.

I’ve filled in the blank with Posterous.

Programmer’s Paradox now has a companion Posterous blog to catch all the ideas and thoughts that don’t make it here or on Twitter.  It’s going to be looser in its focus than this blog, but not all over the place like my Twitter stream.  Let me know if the ideas posted to the Programmer’s Paradox Posterous blog strike a cord with you or if my thinking is just inane dribble.

    Posterous is great, even though mine just consists of mundane, random stuff I see in daily life.

    Any blog, regular or micro, is what you make it. Blogs of the mundane can be awesome, because they present everyday life back to the reader and you never know what connections and wonders will be discovered. The next great startup idea might be lurking in your blog, if you just look hard enough.

    Do you have a link to your Posterous blog, or is it private? If it’s public, I’d love to take a look.
