I haven't found a reason to want to use this thing instead of/as well as twitter yet, so if you've added me you're very unlikely to see me doing anything on it. Sorry.@bonzrat is where I mostly witter.

Spending lunch reading a novel about dragons after a morning writing about pc games. My father hoped I'd be an engineer.

Can't decide if I'm more excited about News International getting what's coming to them or Dance With Dragons arriving tomorrow.

Dance With Dragons, definitely.
+Richard Cobbett : That book is not crap, believe me, and even though the book is not about the main characters, it's still a great read.

Right, is there any way to make Twitter posts auto-appear here too yet, or does the whole thing remain openly insane?

I'm not sure 160 chars tweets would entirely fit as G+ posts... Although they share similar features we're talking about two different mediums.

Every morning I wake up and am not greeted with a headline saying 'Murdoch arrested' or 'Murdoch dissolves News Corp, flees to secret volcano lair' is a bad morning.

Trying to look at CivWorld. Physically recoiled at the phrase "Get CivBucks", which probably doesn't speak to how open my mind is here.
