🎶 Reading the @joejenett post on Bowie my mind drifted and a question formed.

What was the first album by Bowie that you heard that made you sit up, wake up and go explore the back catalogue.

Or were you in from that very first album ‘David Bowie’?

@JustGoodMusic I had listened and absorbed most of the albums from Ziggy onwards ... but it was Low that made me sit up and pay attention.

It was Low that made me listen to the earlier work with different ears and mindset.

@JohnPhilpin Like the example I sent in this morning's email, I went in and changed "Mention" to "Reply" -- it's there now. New micro blog post linking to the post is received as a mention, not a reply. That thing I should have clarified earlier but did so just a short while ago in another reply on on a different thread (the one where you were heading out and had a few questions/thoughts).

@joejenett ha ... hadn’t even seen that ... the paging was because the @ call didn’t work until I edited the post ... I haven’t yet got round to sitting down and working through your tweak comments.

@JohnPhilpin Ah. When you use a micro blog username (like '@JohnPhilpin') in a blog post (ie from the blog, not mb) you need to link the '@username' to the micro blog user's profile - then it will appear on mb as an @ call.
