Indy TweetUp on the 12th to Celebrate Twestival -- Whenever, wherever two tweeters meet, reflect and enjoy #twindy09 in a tweet.

It began on Feb 4th when I was tweavesdropping on a conversation between @nancymryland and @gregcooper . I asked if they would be interested in celebrating twestival with me on the 12th and they said yes!

I submitted my info to the twestival committee so that Indianapolis could be listed among the nearly 200 cities participating in this event to raise awareness and money for… Continue

#Indiana hashtag guidelines--How to affect Indiana's future by donating 3 minutes and 8 keystrokes.

Twitter is the preeminent emerging-technology used by social media advocates, architects and early adapters on every continent. It is a platform on which digital grassroots conversations occur in real time.

While being interviewed by Joe Dager - @business901 - for a podcast, I likened the twitter platform to a huge pick-up bar/dance-club, where you can walk over and chat with anyone. The person you approach has the option of interacting with you in 140 characters, or ignoring you.… Continue

What if Martin Luther King, Jr used twitter to spread the message of his dream?

While reviewing Direct Messages (DMs) and @replies early Sunday morning, I noticed that RicRaftis began following me on twitter. As with every new follower, I carefully reviewed his BIO to learn about his dreams and aspirations. Was he a twitter purist who wanted to authentically share his wisdom, or a Social Media Monger?

Upon inspection, @RicRaftis’s twitter stats contained a decent FFU… Continue

If that made you laugh then the rest of the story will really split your girdle. It was quite a few years ago and I was attached to the Commodores Staff on Com Phib Ron Three embarked on a Gator Freighter in Norfolk Virginia. One of my reserve buddies, who in civilian life was the Indiana Commissioner of Public Records, had asked me to join him and another Hoosier reservist to down a few brews off base. It’s a good hike from the pier to the gate and it is mostly through a city of warehouses belonging to the supply corps. Block after block of five story buildings filled with the stuff it takes to fight a war... you know, toilet paper and batteries.
I was younger than I am today but uncovered (without a hat) in civilian cloths I was already showing a bald spot when viewed from the air. Added to that I was the guy in the middle. Just too much for any self-respecting seagull to resist. I didn't know what hit me until the big bird fluttered his wings as he recovered from his bombing run I just knew that I had something on my head. My friends were happy to report on the bird’s accuracy... a true bulls eye and nothing on my shoulders or anywhere else. The cautioned me not to touch it, I'd just smear it around. Better to go directly to the men’s room and wash up. They would have a bear waiting for me. Of course, when I came out of the men’s room the whole bar cheered. They never said they wouldn't tell. But wait, my humiliation did not end there; The next day I had to go on an errand and I found myself at the same intersection where the 'attack' had occurred and as I crossed the street I heard a seagull laugh. I looked around and could not see a gull anywhere but I heard it laughing.

I knew I'd heard that line somewhere, but couldn't remember where. How'd you like my avatar (instead of a 'real' picture)?

Great, Amy. I like your picture- very unusual angle.
If you don't mind, I'd like to see if I can invite other makreting people from BPE for coffee as well, for the marketing networking group. I thought we could meet at the Paradise Bakery on Meridian, near 86th St. (I'll find the exact address) around 9:30 am on Wed. Is that a good time for you?

Good morning Amy,
Just want to confirm that you are coming to Paradise Bakery on Meridian and 96th tomorrow at 10 am.
Also, what is the name of the gentelman who is really involved with Kiwanis? I talked to him at the last BPE meeting, but I didn't get his name. You sat next to him.

Thanks and see you tomorrow.

I have no idea how to work this, but phew at least I found the comment box! =] I'm going to try and make it during Labor Day weekend, but I'm not 100% sure I can make it yet! I hope so, but I think we might have a wedding that weekend....oof! I have 3 weddings this month!

Love ya Mean it More...tell Sarah, she's not cool until she joins this! It was cool-er and mature-er than MySpace! =]

Yeah! Yes, keep me in the loop on "how to live and interact in the virtual world"....I will sit in the front row!

Love the picture - as I go to this site, and Linked In, etc. I really need a class to figure out how to navigate easily. I think that could be where people get lost or don't participate - you just dont have the time to figure play around and figure it out. Plus - where's the opportunity to network and meet new people - perhaps that should be a category. I'm so proud of you - this is wonderful - I just think you could help a lot of people if you had a class, or a section that talked about how to best use the site.
