This week I’m trying out micro-blogging: Twitter and Tumblr.

I like the casual approach of both, but Twitter requires more work than I’m really willing to give such a tiny thing. I like how it works as a chat channel via IM though even with only Scoble and Chris on there it got too noisy for me to handle. Google Talk status messages work fine as a “what’s up” kind of thing and I don’t have to deal with a whole new friend network.

Tumblr is fun for casual blog crap I wouldn’t put here or in del.icio.us or over on In4mador!. Adding stuff to it is a multiple page procedure though (their bookmarklet doesn’t do chats or quotes) and I’m not quite sure what to do with it or why I’d keep at posting to it.

Also they have stupid names. Boycott stupidly named web-services!

I really do see micro-blogging as the new method to communicate. The opportunity to users to basically ‘text instead of talk’ (micro-blog instead of write) is obviously inviting.

Companies too are able to benefit from this opportunity and use the RSS feed tools to display their latest micro-blogs in their entirety.
