Ian Curry at Frog Design calls Twitter the Missing Messenger. Always on the lookout for something that will simultaneously support his desire to stay in touch and not be distracted, Ian finds “These light exchanges typify the kind of communication that arises among people who are saturated with other forms of communication.” He’s also a Twitterrific fan. We’re energized by this thoughtful post. What a great way to start the week!

I’m not sure exactly what this project by Gregory Chatonsky is but it’s blowing my mind. Video, photos, ambient music, and giant sliding Twitter updates all mushed together into some kind of never-ending, trance-inducing, experimental documentary film thingy. Wow.
