Is Flutter the New Twitter?

Probably not. And though I actually like Twitter for its power to quickly blare out information -- though not for its power to tell me that someone just had an ouchy feeling in his big toe -- this mockumentary is pretty funny, and definitely hits home for anyone who has ever felt Internet social networking site fatigue.

Also, ref Tom Rick's book, I got a Kindle for my birthday and my first download, last night, was Accidental Guerilla. Heading up to read more now.

(Well, it is almost a twitter.)

I still haven't jumped on the Kindle bandwagon, but I might have to if I ever move and don't have room for an entire bedroom dedicated to the collection.

Doing port-and-starboard ops right now between Ricks (The Gamble) and David Schiller (Irrational Exuberance). Ricks does an awesome job telling the story of Col. MacFarland's 1BCT in Ramadi, and how the Anbar Awakening took hold and grew wings.

Trying to get into some COIN doctrine, prob gotta start with FM 3-24..
