Hi Cristoph,

Just for the sake of a little bit more distraction, since we have been discussing the tech, Like Williams, I am on the side of canalling all the "distractions", (if we can call them) in one place. I actually started using buzz to have small discussions with different parts of friends. On one side I have an account which I use totally for personal stuff. The other one, this one, I use for the work. Adding all the tweet alerts, which are very very importante to me, to buz. I have now no problem using Buzz like All-In-One app.
