I participated in my first ever ‘live’ event on Twitter last night. It was for Voices of 2013, so I kinda, sorta ‘had’ to be there… which is mostly the only thing that gets me over to Twitter with any enthusiasm. Twitter is hard work for me. I am a BIG lurker, but rarely participate in discussions because I get lost and confused and it all happens either way too fast or way too slow for me.
So, last night, Darren Rowse was one of the guest hosts – Australia’s go-to guy for all things blogging. He’s such a gem. Cinthia from My Poppet was also hosting, alongside some SEO dude I’d never heard of. I was too interested in the conversation between Darren and Kell from Be A Fun Mum to really pay much attention to the other dude.
Here are some great links that came out of my big Twitter efforts last night:
“We’re living in a moment of time, the first moment of time when a billion people are connected, when your work is judged (more than ever before) based on what you do rather than who you are, and when credentials, access to capital, and raw power have been dwarfed by the question
“Do I care about what you do?”
We built this world for you. Not so you could watch more online videos, keep up on your feeds, and LOLwith your high school friends. We built it so you could do what you’re capable of. Without apology and without excuse. Go.”
