Dazed and confused

Scott commented, originally on his blog, but later disseminated via Twitter, Friendfeed and Facebook that he was becoming confused about which medium was doing what:

At the moment, I’ve got FriendFeed posting updates to my Twitter account – but I have left Facebook out of that loop. I had Facebook included for a while but it seemed to me that the Twitter/FriendFeed updates were just a bit too much for Facebook.

    Story goes that a young Richmond recorded Roadrunner after a trip to New York, where he heard the Velvet Underground – he didn’t believe 4 people could make so much sound…
