Good luck with the new non-device approach! You're bang on that the apparent need to multi-task and check e-mail all the time has damaged our ability to truly listen and absorb information. We really need to focus on single-tasking, which can be a challenge but has lots of benefits.

cheers, Mark

I agree that more choice would definitely be a good thing. As well, a bigger appetite for risk and a willingness to get involved in earlier stage companies would be great. Far too often, I've seen promising entrepreneurs and ideas wither on the vine due to their inability to raise small amounts of capital ($100K to $250K). It's great to see more activity but it seems like a drop in the bucket.

cheers, Mark

I really like Tweetdeck but it's not the most user-friendly tool to read multiple accounts. I like Hootsuite for things such as scheduling tweets and posting to multiple accounts via its integration with Ping.fm but don't use it often to post.

There's a real need out there for this kind of service so happy to see you're addressing it with TwimeMachine.

Jack,

You're clearly biased! :) The question is whether being able to deliver results make you an expert or an effective practitioner. Maybe they're on in the same but I think calling yourself a practitioner is more user-friendly these days.

Thanks for the comment.

Thanks for the comment. As much as having a blog post tweeted about, comments are different - sort of like getting a letter rather than an e-mail message.

Pedro,

Thanks for the link to Sharon's blog. I agree with your contention that blog comments require time, effort and some reflection. As we race around the Web from service to service, many people simply don't want to invest the time or effort necessary.

There's also a lot of people looking to help you "work from home". :)

Thanks for the comment.

I think it's fair to say that commentary is quickly replacing comments. That said, I will concede to another comment below by Aaron that there are blogs with engaged readers who continue to leave comments. TechCrunch, for example, seems to be very comment-friendly.
