If Twitter is too fast for you, try dawdlr


I may love Twitter, the site where you have 140 short characters to tell the world what you're up to, lovers may love Twitter, but I do understand that Twitter's not for everyone. Some people don't want to share the details of every thought, meal or bathroom break with the rest of the Internet and find the constantly updated details of other people's every thought too much to keep up with.

If you're one of these people, allow me to introduce you to the anti-Twitter: dawdlr. As the website puts it, "dawdlr is a global community of friends and strangers answering one simple question: what are you doing, you know, more generally?"

Instead of typing in what you're up to, you send dawdlr a postcard detailing your activities, and some are chosen for the site. (Current postcards include "trying not to look back" and "enjoying living in London"). It's basically a humdrum version of Postsecret, as well as a satire on our rush-obsessed society.

If you want to join in, you have plenty of time: the site's updated around twice a year, with the next update due on May 21st.

Hop to it! Or y'know, don't . . .
