Goodbye Zootool, welcome Twitter

I used to have the habit of sharing interesting articles, originally via google reader share, then I moved to ZooTool when the latter killed the share functionality. The good about this is that you could get a RSS feed and everybody was happy...

Nowadays, RSS seem not to be that hot anymore, I'm tired of ZooTool (I originally chose it because it was the only one integrated with my iPad RSS reader... reeder. Have since moved to mr.Reader if you care) so, I'm killing that (effectively I did a long time ago as if you were following that, you would have noticed I haven't shared anything in a while).

Also, once upon a time I used to keep this blog "anonymous" because I thought it would give me more freedom of commenting on games, graphics and so on without having people associate me with a given company. Nowadays I guess most people know whose blog this is an certainly google does... Also I end up being more "controversial" on outlets that are completely not anonymous, so what's the point...

Bottom line, if you don't yet and you want to, follow me on Twitter where I will share interesting stuff I find during the day... My handle is "kenpex".

And to make this post a bit less useless... let's add a couple of blurred instagram pictures of what I've been working on in the past few weeks...

I actually was a follower of your zootool reposts, and enjoyed how having them as an RSS feed allowed to freely read it wherever I felt comfortable.

With Google discontinuing (sic) Reader, I now enjoy the "shared reads feed" of Tiny Tiny RSS.

Sylvian: yes, I know, and truly I could find an alternative that works with mr.Reader, and has good browser support and good RSS support (full text, not only titles) and so on... But really, I noticed most rendering guys are already on twitter, it's already integrated in all apps, and you can have a discussion, not only a monodirectional share... So I didn't bother.

I can understand why you didn't like Zootool, but if you're moving to a platform that doesn't have RSS feeds, I wont follow you.

Goodbye and thanks for all the links!

Lachlan: I understand the sentiment, but I eat my own dogfood here at the blog. Or really, the stuff that land on the blog are just what I do, not stuff really done because I want to cater the blog per-se.

So, I went recently to twitter for news and such, this just reflects that. It was worth it, for me, not saying everybody should, but ye, everybody should give it a try if they're interested in graphics, it just happens a LOT of smart people hang out there...
