Thinking Aloud About People On Micro Blog

Back in the day when I was using Dave Winer’s 1999 - he used to have a class of user called ‘POETS’ … in his mind they were the ‘non tech’ crowd.

I see a lot of tech and non tech peeps on micro blog … and it got me to wondering if everyone on micro blog self selected that they were ‘primarily’ either ‘POET’ or ‘TECHNOID’ (we need a better word) … it might help discover like minded people - and of course un-like minded people for each of our communities.

Maybe there is a different spectrum that could be applied?

Maybe there are Five Descriptors and you get to distribute 10 points across the 5? So your personal proloctivity shines through?
