I am fortunate to manage a really cool team at LinkedIn. How do I know this? Because when Steve Ganz, one of our more senior web developers came back from vacation, he was greeted by… GANZBOT!
Ganzbot is a lot of fun… he is hooked up to Twitter, and to a custom queue application, so you can make him say almost anything. I sit right across from him, so I’m blessed with hearing a lot of the best Ganzbot interactions.

I feel like I need to have separate aggregations in Twitter now – the streams from friends, the streams from columnists/bloggers, and news/event streams. I have a hard time seeing a solution other than multiple aggregated lists… How can I see a tweet from a friend, a tweet from Barrack Obama, and a tweet from the Mars Phoenix team and expect anything but a jumble?
