Perhaps we can add "smalltalk" to the Newspeak Dictionary.

And yes, you can be succinct. But, in your case this has very little to do with the limitations of the "format" and more to with the depth of your insight.

I'd be fascinated a linguistic perspective on micro forms. Can the constraints of 140 characters alter the way we speak (and think)? Perhaps "smalltalk" is more than a little Orwellian afterall.

Always a pleasure.

Had to laugh at "small talk" referring to micro formats, Peter. I'm incapable of small talk :) I think I do alright in micro form.

Hi Valeria,

At risk of killing the conversation, I think 140 characters are reserved for aphorisms not conversations. I don't understand the attraction of "small talk".

No, thank you. "Listen like an artists paints" will keep me occupied for along time.

Peter
