Tim O´Reilly loves Twitter. That´s why:

  1. Twitter is simple.
  2. Twitter works like people do.
  3. Twitter cooperates well with others.
  4. Twitter transcends the web.
  5. Twitter is user-extensible.
  6. Twitter evolves quickly.

Ray Ozzie apparently too:

… he offers some quick bites about his passions—in a style suggested, he says, by the 140-character format in Twitter. (The fact that he references Twitter and not a Microsoft product is a statement in itself.)

I love software, because if you can imagine something, you can build it.

I love Windows, because without it there would be no PC. There would be no PC developers. There might not even be a Web.

I love the ubiquitous Web because of the connections that it opened up.

I love competition. But when we’re behind a competitor, I hate it when we find ourselves just chasing their taillights.

BTW, a good characterization of Ray, IMHO.

Pownce is being acquired by SixApart and will close. Dave has a quick reflection and explains why it never really took off. Related, Steve Gillmor is of the opinion that there is no competition to Twitter or FriendFeed, not even close. Makes me wonder why he is posting spamming so much on Identi.ca. After having seen him at BearHugCamp, I am anyway without words when I think of him.

Bruce mentioning the use and value of Twitter during the Mumbai attacks.
