Voicemail is dead?

That's what Michael Arrington says. He suggests that if you want to contact him, you should email him instead. Of course, elsewhere he has talked about periodically declaring "email bankruptcy," deleting all unopened emails in his inbox, so maybe that's not a great strategy either. Maybe if you want to contact Arrington you should just visit his house.

For me, voicemail is just fine. No, I will not give you my number.

Thursday, July 03, 2008 is the latest Twitter-like service. It's open source and uses OpenID. It's also slow right now -- but if you like it, you can download and install the underlying software on your own server. Not sure at this point whether doing that will wall you off from other installs on different servers, but if it does, it seems to be going in the wrong direction. More as it stabilizes.
