Real life Micro Blogging
While sitting at Cezrar (hebrew reviews), my favorite lunch place near work today, I saw this draw board on the wall behind the bar.
I asked the barman what was it, and he said they just added a board there, and it started to be a place where the bar team started leaving one line messages to each other: Enjoy the day, good luck on your trip tomorrow, we had a great evening, etc.
The concept is so close to microblogging, and yet, these people come from a totally different position. They don't know Twitter, they almost never used Facebook. They just started it because it.. well.. logical thing to do.
I can't think of a better example to make my point at why Twitter is so successful.
