Getting closer to #phx
Here's a dirty little secret of mine: I'm not a social person by nature. Ask my wife. She'll tell you that I'd become a hermit if it wasn't for her. Now while that might not be 100% accurate, it's not terribly far from the truth.
But just like Jules from Pulp Fiction, I'm trying. I'm trying real hard.
Recently, I've been flexing my wings at this via what I and others refer to as the Phoenix Twitterati -- an eclectic mix of people loosely organized by random "hey, let's go here" posts to Twitter. We grab coffee, have dinner, crash other meetings... whatever. It's totally organic.
In an effort to actually get to know these people better (140 characters and jokes about having no life can only teach you so much), I've decided to start subscribing to the RSS feeds created by these folks. I put them all into a special group, as I don't plan on checking these every day. But I would like to get to know more about them (OK, some of them). Skimming their personal/professional blogs seems like a good way.
So the next time we meet, #Phx Twitterati, don't be surprised if I ask how your vacation was.
