(bits) by bill keaggy

Every week I used to find a cool weblog (sometimes a local St. Louis blog) or some useful, interesting web site from here or there and write up a brief on it for the Sunday Everyday section Tuesday Here and Now section in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (I used to work there as Features Photo Editor). That's about it. Not much action here anymore. More of my stuff can be seen here: keaggy.com.

Maybe you don't really have the desire to start a full-fledged weblog or maybe you're afraid of technology, but you still want to broadcast yourself to friends and strangers online. Well, Twitter is here for you. The site makes it easy to post short updates about your life via the web, text messages or chat software. And you thought starting a blog was the only way to tell the whole world what you ate for lunch. Twitter your life away at www.twitter.com.

Foos On First

Is this an April Fool's joke? No, it's real. A rag-tag squad of avid kickballers has publicly challenged Dave Grohl and his rock band Foo Fighters to a game of kickball to take place July 1 in San Francisco's Delores Park. It gets better: If you help spread the word you could land a spot on the team. Follow these fools as they follow their dream at www.foosonfirst.com.
