Bookmarks for April 24th

In order to share what I’ve found to be useful/interesting/etc. while browsing around below are my links for April 24th. You can find my full set of bookmarks at my Delicious account.

  • In defense of Twitter – – A great post concerning how there is nothing inherent to the banality of Twitter updates; this banality exists in "real" conversations as well. It's a good point and one that I've been trying to make recently with friends who "just don't get Twitter."
  • An interview with Tweetie creator Loren Brichter | Software | Macworld – Interesting interview with the creator of Tweetie (my new Mac Twitter client of choice). One of the best points is about how he set out to build a Twitter app that he could use to manage his Twitter accounts. I've found the best apps to be those that developers built to solve their own needs.
  • A Crash-Course in WordPress Plugin Development – Nettuts+ – What appears to be a good Nettuts tutorial on creating a basic WordPress plugin. Should be helpful this summer when I attempt to write some of my own. Should be fun!
