Linkfest Thursdays: June 4, 2009

There is only one link today – and that is to the video The Controverse 44. I have been watching Amanda Congdon for a few years now and finally decided to chime in on a question about the show “Jon and Kate Plus 8″…and she actually read my comment during the show (Twitter: superjank) Rock on!

Yeah, I am on Twitter

I am on Twitter. I resisted for a long time due to not quite wanting to commit to it, the technical issues, but after using Facebook and really enjoying the status update feature the most…why not move over to using Twitter and then I would still be able to give updates but not have to deal with a lot of the things I really dislike about Facebook (lame polls, who are you in x, etc).

Since the name Jappler was taken – I went with my newest domain name purchase (functionality soon to be determined: superjank. What is jank? Jank is one of my favorite terms from my SoCom days. The official urban dictionary definition:

adj- broken; unnecessarily redundant, superfluous, or meaningless; stupid or ridiculously moronic; bootleg or of questionable quality

Use of the word:

Man, twitter would not let me choose my own picture for the profile because of technical issues. That is super jank.
