I’m always trying to find new ways to use technology to keep track of what’s being said out there. Be it websites, RSS, mailing lists, twitter, etc. I try to know what’s going on for myself, my clients, and my colleagues. As with most other things in life though, I always find someone who is doing it better than I am.
I created a twitter account using my name and not more than 24 hours later, Jason Calacanis followed me. While this is not huge news (Jason has 62k+ people he follows), it was to me. It means that Jason or a script is parsing his mailing list subscribers and finding them at places like twitter. He can hear the train coming from miles away. Can you?
