As anyone who has tried to lose weight or exercise regularly will attest, changing your behavior is hard. You’re fighting years of mental and physical conditioning – and (unfortunately) many times the old habits win out.

At first, I thought Twitter was foolish, then, I tried it and became enamored. About six months later, I lost all respect for Twitter. A few months more, and I can finally see its strengths and weaknesses in balance.

The site is open source board software from… Continue

I had heard about it before and even took a brief look at what's going on there but never thought of using it as a way to promote my job board postings. Until I saw a job board feeding it's RSS feed through a service called TwitterFeed.
