Brent Simmons:

What I don’t have yet, though, is a replacement micro-blogging system. I’m going to let that just be an unmet need for now. Perhaps it’s the grain of sand that irritates me into generating a pearl. And perhaps not.

Exactly the reason I started a private Slack with just fellow nerds. It’s really quiet in there, like ~200 messages a week, and I’ve been vigilant to protect that. I don’t want a lot of noise, I just want a group of people interesting in similar things, which I can bring an idea/question/complaint to and get enjoyable responses. And if you’ve noticed I mostly just use Twitter for self-promotion these days.

It’s too annoying to do anything more.
