Just about a year ago, around the time that Twitter was busting out at the South by Southwest conference, Jack Hodgson and I gave a presentation about Twitter at BarCamp Boston 2.
And as much as we were singing Twitter’s praises, we had a hard time explaining, simply, what Twitter actually was. Was it [...]
My circle of Twitter pals was abuzz today over the news that two online community/social-media providers — Mzinga and Prospero Technologies — had joined forces as part of a $30 million acquisition (press release).
(In the spirit of full disclosure, I do podcast production and consulting for Mzinga, which also sponsored my last Social Media Breakfast; [...]
Here are the number from messages to the @Ivoted Twitter account that I set up on Super Tuesday:
83 reply messages and 4 direct messages to @Ivoted (I stopped tabulating after Wednesday morning)
Of those 87 total messages, 77 declared they had voted and 1 announced he was going to be voting later in the day.
45 users [...]
Inspired by Jeremiah Owyang’s efforts to gather and track messages from Twitter users’ chatter around Super Bowl ads on Sunday night, I’ve started a little experiment of my own and created an Ivoted account on Twitter.

Thanks to Twitter, following the Red Sox along their march to a second World Series title in four seasons has been an absolute thrill.
So, a tip of the cap to Sarah Wurrey, Kyle Flaherty, Jack Hodgson, Doug Haslam, Red Sox Cast (would sure like to know his/her real identity), Joe Cascio, Todd Defren, Rod [...]
Yes, I’ve been quiet on the blogging front here lately — a 10-day vacation in California without a computer followed a week of daydreaming about said vacation can do that to a guy.
But I doesn’t mean I’ve been completely out of the loop this month. To wit:
I popped onto my mobile [...]

On Sunday morning, I Twittered that my aunt Nichole had passed away after a long battle with cancer.
Two days later, I received two notes — one by e-mail and another via text comment to the post on this blog where that Tweet also lives — from former friends and co-workers of my aunt’s. [...]
I recently moved the daily digests of my Twitter posts and del.icio.us links off the main page of Bryper.com; they’re no longer part of this blog’s RSS feed, either.
But, fear not: thanks to a nifty WordPress plugin called Category PluginsVisibility-RH Rev, you can still follow them.
If you’re on the blog proper, just click on the [...]
