Twitter Tales: Euston’s choir

March 11th, 2009 by Dave Leave a reply »

I didn’t think much of it at the time. In fact, all I thought was that it was shame I couldn’t record it happening — my train was about to leave.

But I tweeted it all the same:

Impromptu choir singing at euston, very beautiful. It’s amazing how uplifting the human voice can be.

And that’s that. Told my girlfriend how good they were, and promptly forgot about it. Until this popped up today:

idona@davelee the chior you heard was the one voice community choir from preston had just sung at watminster abby for the queen glad you liked

And here indeed they are.

Ok, so it’s not going to change the world. But tell me — has this kind of connect ever been possible before? It’s almost as if the choir has dipped into a conversation with a friend where I’ve said “Saw a cool choir the other day, had to dash off though” and arrived, right on cue, with the information.

And from here I could, if I wanted, find their website, contact their members, go to a show… all sorts.

Isn’t that great?

    Yes, but is it really useful just because it might be ?

    It’s beginning to dawn on me that I spend a vast amount of time wandering around various nooks and crannies of the internet because ‘it might be useful’, only to find that many hours have been gobbled up without said usefulness materialising because all it is is unfocussed garbage.

    If Twitter was being used in a particularly focussed way, then OK. It is a potentially useful tool from the point of view of mechanics, ennit ?

    But tell me, how exactly have you managed to achieve a commission ? or do anything actually useful, because I haven’t yet seen a hint of that. And how on earth can it save time, or rather how does it save time ?

    In reply to the question above, you tweet what you are looking for and someone helps you find it.

    In reply to your question, Dave. Yes that is wonderful.

    You can either sit around moaning and saying ‘ooh what’s in it for me?’ or you can dive in and engage.

    I know which I’d rather.

    Seems to me if you love people, you may just love Twitter.

    Good day to you.

  3. Ab machines vary greatly in price but although most are normally under the hundred dollars, it does not automatically reflect how good the machine is. For the average person wanting to get started they should look at the AB Slide or Torso Track II which do the job, are cost effective, movable and easy to store. Most machines enhance regular exercise and gym regimes but what you need to investigate before paying out the money is what muscles they actually work on. If they do not tone up both the ab muscles and the oblique’s then do not buy that machine because you cannot obtain the ultimate six pack if you do not work on these muscles.
