queen’s birthday links

I hope everyone is enjoying doing whatever it is that we’re supposed to do to commemorate the Queen’s birthday. Here are a few things I’ve run across so far today:

The potato gatling gun demonstrates again the difference between invention and innovation. It’s a cool thing to make, but I suspect it’ll be a while before we’re able to buy one ourselves…

Second, Brian Solis has a really nice post on whether or not twitter is a medium for broadcasting or conversing. He correctly points out that either role is ok, and he uses the classification above from Forrester research to point out that not everyone is on the net for a conversation. Even though collaboration is one of the really good things about the internet, it also still serves very effectively as a conduit for information. So broadcasting isn’t necessarily bad. Personally, I’m still not getting much use out of twitter though…

Finally, stay in school!!
