Are you also astounded to find that there *are* people who are genuinely
interested in that sort of detail about someone else?  Because I find that my
microblog followers do indeed appreciate as many comments a day as I can

Maybe that wouldn't be you.  Sounds like it wouldn't.  Good thing there
are different strokes for different folks.

No, there are public people and private people.  I started out a very private
person.  And now as I get older and more crotchety... I find being a public
person perfectly acceptable.  So I blog (perl at use.perl, non-perl at
vox.com, microblog at jaiku and tumblr), and put (nearly) every picture in my
life on Flickr, and plan on doing so for quite a long time.
