“Quemadmoeum gladuis neminem occidit, occidentis telum est.” –Lucius Annaeus Seneca, circa 45 AD
Translation: “A sword is never a killer, it is a tool in the killer’s hands.”
Just thought this might be somewhat relevant to political and cultural debates we’re having two thousand years later.

Good overview article from the SF Chronicle on Twitter, though I like to call the individual Twitter messages “tweets”, not “twitters”.
I found Annalee Newitz’s article on Twitter fascinating, including this breakdown of time:
+ Twitter time: every minute
+ Blog time: every few hours
+ Newspaper time: every day
There’s also a mention of “book time” in the one-line bio at the end of the piece, which I suppose one could translate in to meaning “every few days”, given how long the average person devotes to getting through a tome.
I also thought about how one might define the 24-hour news cycle. Would “CNN time” be defined as “every second”?
