TechEd 2008
So this year TechEd is divided into two weeks -- one focused on developers and one on IT Pros -- and I'm going as a representative of INETA. We'll have a spot in the community area. INETA is also a big force behind the BOF sessions. If you haven't been to one of those in the past, try to check them out this year. On Monday, June 2 from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm we're having an INETA Community Leadership Summit to get the week kicked off right. If you're on Facebook, go add this event.

Given the typical percentages of male/female attendees at these events and user groups in general, I was surprised when a young woman showed up by herself and sat at a table by herself near the back. Turns ......

Cosmic Blogging Time
So there I was, thinking about a new blog post, pondering someone else's blog post I'd just read, installing Windows Live Writer so I can post better blog posts, and it just hit me. Wham! Of all the people I know, if the universe could have back the total number of hours spent on blogging alone, just imagine the possibilities. Plus, add in the time for all the people that I DON'T know who blog. Wow. Then, I started to enumerate (list) the alternative actions that would be more beneficial to the cosmos. ......

Jeff Atwood calls it the combination of blogging and IM. There are various way to interact with twitter: you can do it with your mobile phone, sending and receiving updates as SMS browse to the mobile version of the web page you can sent and receive updates using your favorite IM client you can use the web UI and the ......

So, I never joined myspace. Just never felt the need. However, this new Facebook phenomenon looks interesting. Yet another social networking vehicle. It's more lightweight and structured than myspace. Check out my profile over there. Sign up! Be my friend! Technorati Tags: Social ......
