Twitter on Dr. Dan’s couch:
What are you doing? It’s a simple question that has transformed the internet. With Twitter, we can find out what people are up to and in to at any time. But what’s different about this form of social networking, what makes it appealing, how will people use it in years to come? On the next Voices in the Family, we’ll discuss Twitter. Our guests are Clive Thompson and David Parry. Thompson is a science, technology and culture writer for Wired magazine, The New York Times and New York Magazine. He is also the author of the blog, Collision Detection. Parry is assistant professor of Emerging Media and Communications at University of Texas, Dallas. Check out Parry’s blog, Outside The Text.
