Finding the blog really interesting. Especially the "More Data beats better algorithm" posting.

Thought I would let you know.



have to agree with the previous commenter. i rank my rss feeds by page order on iGoogle, and a few weeks after this blog came out i moved it to page 1.

i'm only saying this because i find the twitter updates infinitely less interesting than the blog posts, and just want to make sure the posts continue at the same rate. i mean the twitter updates are marginally interesting, but so are random people's twitter updates for the same reason.

i did try posting notes to a sms service similar to twitter at a tech conference once. but for me, unless i get on my computer and write it all out immediately, after awhile i forget what was so interesting or what it was supposed to remind me of.

Mathew and Korey, thanks for the kind words about the blog. It's really motivating!

I don't see twitter as a substitute to blog posts. My attitude to this blog is, I'll post things where I have done some analysis, and not just stream of consciousness or links. That's because I feel a responsibility not to waste the time of people who subscribe to the feed. I'll keep my posting frequency at 1-2 posts/week, which I feel allows me to maintain the quality level.


Anand, any particuarl reason why you use twitter instead of something like FriendFeed?

Anand Rajaraman

Atul: I use Twitter because it allows me to post from my mobile phone. Most of my tweets are done using TwitterBerry on my Blackberry Pearl.
