Keeping a locked diary gave way to LiveJournal gave way to MySpace gave way to Facebook gave way to Twitter. Perhaps you never jumped on any of these bandwagons, but now's the time to reach out and follow someone. Here's an article for Twitter Beginners and my suggestion of five folks you should stalk:
1. Tina Fey
3. Amazon mp3
4. The Onion
If you're a regular reader, then you know I'm a huge fanatic for Lost. The creator of that lovely nugget also fashioned another delightful series - Alias.
