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.
