Who"s davidlian?

My photo
davidlian is an ultra-geeky chinese dude that works for a technology PR agency. He loves fiddling with techno-toys, plays Warhammer 40K, and shoots pictures wherever he goes. Here, he rants about PR, Technology and anything else. Don't expect balance and un-biased, he ain't no journalist. Anything said on this blog are solely davidlian's personal views. Don't confuse them with company mantra, client's views or views of any organisation he may be part of.

Twitter makes the world go round - literally

Here's a riddle: what's got funny, colourful cartoon avatars and spins around and around, is tilted at an angle of 23.44 degrees and spouts speech bubbles that aren't chronologically coherent?

Give up?

Surf over to www.twittearth.com and check it out. Found this courtesy of my colleague Rony. Basically, it's a location sensitive Twitter visualisation that let's you see other twitters from all over the world. Yes, it's just eye candy, but somehow, I feel it adds an additional dimension to the plain ol' text of Twitter.

Oh, and if you've longed for a fancy screensaver, there's a download on twittearth that lets you use it as a screensaver. Walk away long enough and tweets from around the world will keep that globe rotating and your screen 'saved'. The only problem is, install it and you might just be inclined to keep walking away from your PC when you're supposed to be doing work.
