Just finished reading A Murder Of Quality by John Le Carré. It’s the second book in the George Smiley sequence. Espionage takes a backseat in what is really just an old-fashioned murder mystery but I enjoyed reading it. On to book three.

Lots of people have become disenchanted with Twitter and it’s not hard to see why. The reasons are numerous. I still think it is what you make of it though. I’ve managed to keep out the rabble. My problem with Twitter is the same one I have with every other social media service.

I’m not very good at initiating conversations there and most of my activity is in reaction to other people’s contributions. As more and more of my timeline is filled with retweets my road in seems to be contracting. Hence my recent comment about a “no retweet” option.
