Thought For The Day:
I really like twitter. That doesn’t mean it’s useful or important. I was also a big Monkees fan.

- Are Job Board Resumes Low Hanging Fruit?
I like Boolean Black Belt because he tells the truth. One doesn’t pass by the low hanging fruit with disdain, one grabs it and says ‘Thank-you’. Smart people often manage to avoid having to climb the tree to get the fruit. That’s for people who think it’s good to do things the hard way. Low hanging fruit is good.

- Twitter is a Fad
“But Twitter is still a fad, and according to a study out today, it looks like it’s popularity may soon fade. Conducted by Nielsen Online, it focuses on “Twitter Quitters,” people who start a Twitter account but then fail to return the next month. Twitter, the study points out, has a very low retention rate, just 40%. Unless it figures out how to get more people to stick around, that means Twitter won’t ever achieve sizable reach online. “There simply aren’t enough new users to make up for defecting ones after a certain point,” writes David Martin, VP of Primary Research at Nielsen Online. With its current retention rate, Martin calculates the service could never reach more than 10% of the Internet population, even in a best-case scenario.”
