ImpulseQuotes: a new project

Thu, May 5, 2011 at 4:14PM

I’ve decided to start a new project that will document and broadcast what I hear, see and read with the power of Twitter.

I’m calling it “ImpulseQuotes” because of the reasoning behind it: I always carry a bunch of notecards with me (more on this in a later post) and when I hear something interesting (like a phrase or song) I write it down to remember later.

Twitter has been described as a place to pee, and that’s exactly the idea behind ImpulseQuotes. My brain needs a place to purge the interesting content stuck in a time loop. In a way, quotes get stuck in my head like a song could: this is just an experiment–a project inspired by an insignificant idea.

Insignificant ideas, though, are usually the start of great things. I’ll do ImpulseQuotes for a while and see how it works out for me.
