Dave Winer over at Scripting News has suggested an addition to this Twitter micro blogging phenomenon: Twittergrams! The idea is to record messages with a limited number of words which would be the natural progression we saw from blogs to podcasting. I posted a response on my Twitter page, or you can listen here.

I think micropodcasting sounds sexier though. And what's there to stop us in the future making micro videocasts? You could be at a restaurant and do a quick food review on your camera phone, or record a quick message out the front of the Merlion in Singapore or the Eiffel tower, a modern day video Twitter "wish you were here" message.

Once again, I think Dave has really stumbled upon something interesting here. Not that he's ever taken the time to reply to anything I've ever said ;-).
