Live from #CTIA! Is a Tweet stream sort of like "Lifecasting"?

Perhaps you've heard of the notion of "lifecasting"... basically recording one's life digitally, possibly for broadcasting on the internet. (Or.. perhaps just as an extreme example of self-indulgent obsessive behavior?)

In any case, that's not what I have in mind here. But I was wondering what it would look like to connect my stream of messages from a particularly busy day of tweeting activity. That is exactly what one would see if they were following my Twitter RSS feed. It's not a way I have ever looked at my tweets before, but perhaps the way some of my followers do.

Would a collection of micro-blogs from one event make up a coherent blog? Now that I compiled the list, I have to say emphatically NO. But, if nothing else, maybe this would be a good way for me to aggregate my notes to expand on later. Otherwise, there is way to much to remember.

Worst case, it's a completely random and incoherent stream of consciousness. I'll leave that up to you.
