Selection of My Twitter Favorites, Edition 26

Twitter is a microblogging service where people answer the question "What are you doing?" via 140-character messages from their cellphone, laptop or desktop. You can select the messages you find useful, amusing, or both. Here is the 26th edition of My Twitter Favorites (the oldest post is at the bottom, the newest at the top):

Leo Laporte
leolaporte Cultural question: it seems that even on a 3-lane highway (like the A11) the French stick to the right lane except for passing. True?

johnbattelle In conversation with @fredwilson, a thought occurred: Blogs are slow food, Twitter is fast food. But the nutrition in in the mix.
