Dragged Kicking & Screaming into the 21st Century
But it's true. GRC and Steve now both have individual Twitter accounts, blogs, and RSS feeds. And it appears to be a good thing.
The GRC blog, twitter, and RSS feed will be low-traffic and reserved exclusively for announcements of GRC's new services, features, freeware, and commercial offerings. Steve's personal side will be higher-traffic and contain stuff that he thinks others might find interesting.
The best way to understand what's going on is to check out the three inaugural blog postings:
|The GRC News Blog:||2008 & 2009 — How were the years 2008 and 2009 spent?|
|The GRC News Blog:||May 2010 — The Plan for 2010...|
|Steve's Personal Blog:||Steve Gets a Blog! — Could it really be true?|
If you are a Twitter follower, you are invited to join the 35,129 people who are currently following Steve's personal Twitter account (for his more frequent tweets), and also possibly the 8,123 followers of his separate “pad computing” Twitter channel, and/or the 15,552 people who are currently following GRC (for much less frequent GRC-only news and updates). So here's the lineup:
Three Twitter Accounts:
Why all those Twitter accounts? My reasoning is that since it's so easy (and free) to “follow” a Twitter stream, and since some Twitter users might only care about GRC business stuff, or might not care at all about “pad computing”, why not let me and Twitter select the “channel” so that you're not bothered by stuff you don't want, and if you do want it all, just follow all three accounts . . . and you'll get everything.
If you use RSS (really simple syndication) to keep track of news that interests you, both of our Twitter feeds and both blogs publish RSS feeds that you can monitor to receive news of updates:
