In preparing for the upcoming apocalypse where all us nerd abandon Twitter for less corporate social networks, I have signed up for Tent.is.
If you are on there as well, hit me up.
I have been ignoring my Twitter account lately.
I have lost interest for the most part, and find my attention going elsewhere. Combine that with all the corporate BS that is over-running Twitter, I don’t know how much longer I will hold on.
New services like App.net sound appealing, if only to get back to “the Wild West” that was Twitter in its early years. I have been on it since July of ’07, and it has been the only social network that I have maintained all this time. I feel like that will soon change.
My blog here has fell into disrepair, I’m not active on the forums I used to frequent, and I no long care about new services and networks that emerge. Maybe I’m getting old, maybe I am just too damn busy. Or maybe things just aren’t as cool as they used to be.
I think it’s all of the above.
32 years old and attending near full time college, while working 45+ hours every week (not counting commuting), AND trying to raise a 3 & 5 year old?
What the hell was I thinking?
Found this pleasant surprise in my inbox this morning:
When you moved your MobileMe account to iCloud, we provided you with a complimentary storage upgrade beyond the standard 5GB that comes with an iCloud account to help you with the transition. Originally, this storage upgrade was set to expire on September 30, 2012.
As a thank you to our former MobileMe members, we will continue to provide you with this complimentary storage upgrade at no charge, for an additional year, until September 30, 2013. No action is required on your part. For complete details, please read this article.
Thank you again for using iCloud,
Not as nice as the bug that showed me paid up until 2050 last week, but still good.
I predict an iCloud storage bump for all users in the near future. 5GB of (free) space is not quite enough if you utilize it for more than just iOS backups.
