A few links for Monday

I am still trying to migrate from del.icio.us to Tumblr for my links ("THINGS I FOUND INTERESTING AROUND THE INTERNETS"). But frankly, it is low on my priority list!

Here are a few links I wanted to share:

Via Stockbee, "Everytime the S&P has made 10 days high (indicated by red spikes) in last one year it has had a correction or reversal." See the chart here.

Many of you have urged me to get on Twitter, but I don't think I have the bandwidth to do it. Via Jon's Stuff, here is a piece from Time - Desperately Trying To Quit Twitter.

Trader Mike linked to another good article from Time - What Sells in a Recession: Canned Goods and Condoms.

For you iPhone users - Kevin Rose (founder of Digg.com) has the latest rumors on the forthcoming update (copy and paste!?)...and he is usually right.

I'm with you on the lack of bandwidth for twitter. I actually have an account but I rarely use it. Plus I find it tough to follow conversation threads and to cut through the noise. I guess I could use all kinds of 3rd party tools to help in those respects but then I'd be bogging down my PC...

In the end though, I just don't see what's in it for me and I've got more than enough other things to fill my day.

I love technology and social media, but there is just too much out there. Twitter, Tumbler, Facebook, Myspace, Linked In, Blogger, and for all of those there are 20-50 smaller ones trying to catch on. I wish one would win and the others would just go away.

I agree Jim. Mike - it looks like we are the only holdouts-timers...here is a headline from the Mashable today:

Twitter Now Growing at a Staggering 1,382 Percent

Kevin Rose was right.
