Caught betw Twitter & Google Reader

As I’m reaching completion on the new features of Fargo I’m doing, I realize that I’m no I’m no longer accepting the limits of Twitter or Google Reader.

These two products had us in a vise-like grip.

Twitter says our posts don’t have titles, and can’t be longer than 140 chars. And Google Reader said our posts had to have titles, and could be unlimited in length.

This is why my world is fractured, and so is yours.

If you no longer accept the limits, after all Google Reader killed itself, and Twitter hasn’t moved since it started up, there are some pent-up cool things you can do.

Software can be a fog of war. But when the fog lifts, well that can be a great time.
