i almooooost picked this up at the gladstone but i choked. i can think of maaaaaany people deserving of such a fine gift. throw a gingerbread twitter logo and a properly formatted tweet and you’ve got something way better than one of those dumb cuneiforms.
if it’s still there after thanksgiving, i think i’m going to have to get it.
i think i know what some of you will be getting for christmas! dumb cuneiform creates clay tablets of tweets. you’ll have big fun guessing if you got a trump tweet or a neal degrease tyson tweet. [ via Waxy links ]
the market in the twitter hq building has organic valley fuel ( and a bunch of other ov products). as a brand manager I like to imagine their ceo dick costolo slamming one after his notoriously rigorous workouts. maybe!
i thought i had been following henry rollins on twitter for some time now, but alas i was clued in with this tweet by mike watt that the now suspended nothenryrollins that i was already following wasn’t actually the amusing reverse-take on fake identities that i assumed it was.

roger ebert thinks you’re paying for the streaming with amazon prime and getting the two day shipping for free. dave winer thinks you’re getting the streaming for free and paying for the shipping.
they’re both right, of course, but it’s an amusing example of different perspectives on the same announcement and is perhaps telling of the relative value each places on streaming and shipping.
