Scoble’s column on microblogging (featuring Twitter, Jaiku, Pownce, and Facebook) from the latest issue of FastCompany is up online. It’s titled "The Next Email."

His conclusion:

"If we revisit this conversation again in three years, I suspect that
we’ll have found all sorts of little uses for these services, and
they’ll simply become what email is today: something we must do just to
participate in the heartbeat of business."

Thanks for inspirational post + cntoemms! I got thinking about the shared rapture when as a kid I would share my walkman with a friend, each using one earplug. Maybe the cosiness of this could be applied to a museum experiencde. We’re considering doing audio tours with music in stead of speak – music that’s picked out especially for specific tours round the galleries to set a certain atmosphere. The idea of third-things makes me think that we should try making musical audioguides with shared earplugs for visiting couples or friends. It might be based on playlists where you could choose your favourite song or tune and then stroll through the galleries with your best friend by the hand, sharing an audiovisual moment. Maybe museum visitors already do that using their ipods?
