David Jakes attacking Twitter will probably get some reaction in the blogosphere, so I include it here for easy reference. Best part of the read is the first comment (of 38, as of the last count) comment, by artichoke, citing Ivan Illich: "I hope that the parallel now becomes clear. Just as the commons of space are vulnerable, and can be destroyed by the motorization of traffic, so the commons of speech are vulnerable, and can easily be destroyed by the encroachment of modem means of communication." As I fight with almost overwhelming amounts of spam this week, I cannot help but agree.
