Pocket Twitter – a suitable replacement for the Internet when offline

IMG_20130316_004647
I haven't had a working smart phone in months, and so the times when I find myself needing to write down short messages to the world don't always coincide with the times that I'm on the net. Hence this version of "pocket twitter", writing down things that you want to share (or to remember) on paper, and saving that paper away until the next time it's possible to share a photograph.

This is from a few weeks ago, back when gas was $3.339 per gallon, and during and after a snowstorm and rain event that had people watching for localized flooding. You can read the rest, but for some reason I was thinking about the Jupiter Ace, a Forth-based machine from the early 1980s. What the mind will do when it has some paper to work with for storage.
