Social media, Abe Lincoln-style

272 is social networking through the written word. All entries are 272 words on the nose. Why 272? Well, when my wife and I founded 272 we set out to create a different sort of social media site: a slower, reflective — dare we hope — more civil place for thoughtful and thought-provoking conversations. So we took as our inspiration the Gettysburg Address. A model of concision and clarity, and an enduring testament to universal values, it took Lincoln just 272 words to craft. Not an easy thing to do.
