Spending most of a week in Sin City

A bit of a dramatic headline, perhaps, but Sin City aka Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, is where I’m headed on Sunday morning on a  Virgin Atlantic flight where I’ll be for most of next week, back here in the UK on Thursday morning. It’s been a few years since I was last in Vegas. Each time I’ve been there, it’s been on business and this upcoming trip is no different. So no ‘sin’ in sight yet I always have a…

Still, it’s a good photo that, to me, epitomizes the embracing…

Twitter connections in real life at TweetCamp

I’m going to be at TweetCamp London 09 in Richmond tomorrow, June 27. In common with quite a few others, I want to see what an unconference that focuses on the cross-over of relationships developed primarily on Twitter into the real world is like, what I’ll learn and what I can provide for others who will be there. Here’s how organizers Farhan Rehman, Desigan Chinniah and Jon Bishop describe TweetCamp London 09: TweetCamp is about bringing communities together, in real…
