After reading Patrick's short post, I want to try this experiment as well. I also have used Twitter less and less. I have used all of the social networks less this year than in the past. But not for the continuous angst-ridden reason some people have. I wasn't excited anymore. Perhaps a return to the basics will help. I don't know, but it's worth a try.
The problem for me is that Patrick’s post URLs now looks like this.
Have you tried a date formatted URL?
