Twitter Redux (Sep 2008 - Dec 2008)

The blog has lain fallow for more than a year. However from September 2008, I have been active on Twitter (@urajat). Since my updates on Twitter are protected, I thought I would collect some of my better (re)tweets/links/conversations here for public consumption. Some of the tweets are followed by annotations in italics. The links posted here will mostly be of the shortened variety, although I might get them to expand automatically in future posts. Till then, bear with me.
