Redefining conversation

Lisa Kirk said, "A gossip is one who talks to you about others, a bore is one who talks to you about himself; and a brilliant conversationalist is one who talks to you about yourself."

She didn't live in the age of web 2.0 or she would have added, "And a microblogger is someone who talks to himself in public hoping others will listen."

If you don't get it, try Twitter for a while and see if you don't end up talking to yourself. Hey wait a minute, isn't that what I'm doing right now?
