Whilst I'm spellbound by the concept and how it came about, I really can't read enough about it lately. It really doesn't do much for me personally as a service. Although I can see why it is so popular for so many.
For me, it seems to be mostly old people from school (who I didn't really care for) posting basic, boring and down right stupid things. Funny thing is, most "status bunnies" (OMG I'm buying Broccoli, I'm so drunk etc) would bash on geeks like myself for using IRC etc back in the 56k days at school... Funny old world.
