On February 18th I had the privilege of attending one of Quinte's tweet-ups. This was my first tweet-up and I'm very happy I went. Being new to the twitter world, I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but luckily I had back-up in the form of friends. One was an avid tweeter who seemed to know everyone through twitter, while the other was even newer to twitter than I, and wasn’t following anyone in the room. I sat comfortably in the middle, and although I'd followed some of the people that attended, there were still several that I didn’t know.
Everything at the tweet up ran smoothly, and awkward pauses, which I thought would be abundant, where few and far between. Conversation flowed freely from what was happening in Belleville, to the Olympics, to what so-and-so tweeted. It was a nice change to have full-blown conversations with people whose communication is normally limited to...
I have been on a bit of a health kick lately, and have been riding my bike a lot in the evenings after dinner. It's been great getting back into riding, and I actually still have my original mountain bike from when I was a kid. Still works great, even though it's from the mid 90's. Recently I stumbled across a website called Our For a Ride, which is a social network for cycling enthusiats.

Once you get back, you just add a new ride, select the route you took, enter...
Lately, there has been a lot of buzz surrounding young people and why they don’t tweet. This video by Beth Kanter nails it. Watching this made me realize, young people don’t tweet, young professionals do. That’s why I was so excited when I heard a few weeks ago that @LenKendall was working on a project to create a list of the top under 30 tweeters. The list was released today; Top 30 Under 30 Tweeters: Volume 1. The first of many to come, this list recognizes up and coming under 30 tweeters and is meant to be a resource for young people on Twitter to aspire to. Not only are there some amazing people featured, but there are also over 100 nominees that are equally incredible that should not be overlooked. As Len describes it:
‘To recap the 30 under 30 Tweeters Project, we set out to find the best tweeters born after 1979 so that there would be a resource out there that people in this...
