A failed experiment

Motivated by Twitter's brilliantly inefficient 'reply' mechanism ( i.e. you reply to a person, the burden of determining which of their Tweets motivated you to do so falls on them), I began this morning an experiment in applying this model to other communication channels.

Word to the wise, busy women balancing the demands of a young family, an immature husband and a nursing career may not appreciate the value of a conversational model in which your participation manifests itself as randomly replying to previous statements or queries of your partner.

Calling it 'paradigm shifting' will fall on deaf ears.
