Throw Myself On the Sword?

March 24, 2007

Blog Stats reveal strangeness.

Recently a steady stream of readers have visited this site after searching for “Throw myself on the sword” and finding an article I wrote that has that phrase in the title but is not about swords, thrown or otherwise. This makes me wonder a few things. Clearly I am disappointing anyone who is looking for that phrase, because the article I wrote that contains it, is SO much NOT about swords that it’s actually about RSS Feed Readers. How much less like a sword could one get than a feed reader? I fear I am disappointing you. Whoever you are, I am sorry.

Why are you searching for Throw-Myself-On-The-Sword? I  searched Google and didn’t find any results that jumped out and appeared to clarify what it is you must be looking for.

?

Don’t throw yourself on a sword.

Congratulations Earth, You Twitter Killers!

UPDATE: 8:09pm Eastern. – Nevermind.. it’s back. 😉

Next, the News:

Twitter is down. Twittervision, at the mercy of twitter, also down, but providing a very lovely eulogy:

Twitter.com has been experiencing server capacity problems this week due to very rapid growth.
We are sure the folks at Obvious are working to remedy the situation, but in the meantime, please be patient while waiting for posts on Twittervision.

We can’t display them if they cannot be posted to Twitter.

So, sit back and enjoy the show! Posts will be shown whenever they are available!

First, an Ode to Twitter:

Sad. How young and fair wert thou sweet Twitter. So fair and so sweet and so young and strange. So vibrant and plump. We all needed you! We had to have you. We were mad with desire for your sweet vibrant young fair strange plump.

Thus we jumped en-mass as collective earth and hive mind extolled your virtues and the cynics cynicized your worth.

Third, Communal Grief and Bonding:

Let us join hands… wait.. are you even there? are you reading this? How will you know I wrote this if I can’t twitter that I’m writing it.

No matter. I will trust that you are still there. I have seen your tweets all over the globe. And it has been beautiful. Though we are now veiled from each other yet do I feel we are together still in truth.

We must believe, for Twitter, like Tinkerbell, is healed by devotion.

To Twitter! To Life! To Birth and Hope!

In your name I ask us all,

“What are you doing?”
