Change and technology are not words that a 57-year-old sports editor can always understand. Put the two words together and it can be mind-boggling for my generation.
However, sometimes that change can actually be good - and fun.
That's the case with Twitter, a concept that took more than a few minutes for Gary Moyers, our Web master, to explain to me recently. But now that he has got the concept into my head, hopefully it will benefit those of you who are technology savvy.
In April, Twitter users spent about 300 million minutes logged on to the site in April. That's an increae of 3,712 percent from a year earlier.
That's what led to the emphasis for me to have a blog featuring not only University of Kentucky columns that appear in The Advocate-Messenger, but also special posts for the Web. And that includes my tweets from my Twitter account.
