By now, some of you may have heard about Vine, which was recently acquired by Twitter and launched a few days ago.

It’s a social media site designed to share quick videos. Similar to Twitter’s limit of 140 characters per post, Vine only lets you share up to 6 seconds of video.

It’s mostly a time waster at this point, but it’s fun to get a glimpse into someone’s life through a brief clip. And it’s oddly entertaining to see what people come up with.

I’ve played around and posted two videos: One of me discovering a phone book on the front porch today. (They still make those?)

And one of the book I’m currently reading, More Tales of the City. It’s one of my favorite books and it’s been awhile since I read it. It still has the magic and nobody can tell a story like Armistead can. Here’s that video:

Since there isn’t a direct way to link to my Vine feed yet, you can follow me through Twitter and I’ll post new videos there. Please let me know if you join Vine too.

The Vine app is available here:

You can also go to and get a continuous feed of random Vine posts as they show up. No software or Twitter ID required.

If you enjoyed this, please share the love!
