2 months ago I succumbed to ahem, tweeting - an activity which I thought would be inane - but it turned out not to be as dumb as it appeared to be. At least now my random flyaway thoughts have a home (in pre-Twitter days these would have been lost in the abyss outside my short-term memory). Plus, I get first hand updates on things like Chip Goodyear quitting Temasek, Farrah Fawcett’s passing (I wasn’t online when MJ died)… and get entertained by “celebredouches” who fill me in with too much details (if you’re thinking @johncmayer, we are on the same page).
(Apologies if paragraph above sounds disjointed. While I rave, I’ll also have to admit that I’m slowly losing the ability to write in paragraphs with more than 140 characters…)
But anyways, I digress. Good thing I started this post with a title in mind, or I might have forgotten why I’m writing here in the first place. So here goes:
1. Sylvia Plath - (I’m sure) her tweets will make compelling reading.
2. Doris Lessing - Same goes for Mrs Lessing. She’s such an astute observer. I just kept going, “Man, this woman should tweet,” while reading her autobio.
3. Philip Zimbardo - Read the Lucifer Effect. Period.
4. Stephen Hawking - He sexi-fies Physics. Not gonna pretend I understand everything he says, but he has this ability of making things fascinating. If I were still in uni I might just switch my Major.
More to be added to this list.
