TechEd 2010 Twitter Book Give Away
If you’re going to TechEd North America this year, Sams Publishing will be giving away 9 advanced reader copies. In order to win a copy, be sure to follow the InformIT Twitter account and the #TechEd hash tag. Sporadically throughout the day a tweet will be sent out stating that the first person who comes to the booth and mentions my book will get a copy. The give away will probably occur over multiple days, so be sure to keep an eye on Twitter. Technorati Tags: Books,Sams Teach Yourself C# 2010 ......

Microsoft MVPs on Twitter
Following last years post of people at MVP Summit 2009 on Twitter, I’m getting a bit of a head start and using the new Twitter Lists feature to create a list of all Microsoft MVPs that I know (or know of). I’ve started this list with the same people from last years blog post. The plan is for this list to be a complete list (or at least as complete as I can make it) of Microsoft MVPs. If you are an MVP and want to be included or if you know of any MVPs that should be included, please let me know. ......

MVP Summit 2009 Twitters
If you’re at MVP Summit 2009 (or not at Summit) and trying to find people to follow I’ve started putting together a list of MVPs and Microsoft employees that I know who are here. Everyone should be using the #mvp09 hashtag for their tweets, so you can follow the conversations using #hashtags, Twitter Search, Twopular, TweetScan, or any other twitter search sites. If you want to be included in this list (or have updates to your information), leave a comment or message me on Twitter. Microsoft MVPs ......

TweeTube – Video Sharing for Twitter
There are a lot of different sites available for sharing pictures on Twitter, but it seems like there are very few that allow you to easily share videos. All of that has changed with the launch today of TweeTube. TweeTube bills itself as being “The easiest way to share videos on Twitter” and from what I’ve seen so far, it is. You can search YouTube for videos with matching keywords, or if you already know the video you can paste the URL. After you find the video (in this case I am sharing a video ......

Twitter is an interesting phenomenon. I first started using it in April at the MVP Summit. Since then, as anyone who is following me has seen, my use has been intermittent at best. The biggest reason is that I haven’t found a Twitter client that I liked that allowed me to use Twitter in a way that was not only natural (at least for me) but from within tools that I was already using and in front of me. The other day I decided to download OutTwit and have found it to fit almost all of my needs. There ......

MVP Summit 2008
I just got back from attending my first MVP Summit and have to say the level of access we received to the product teams and other people within Microsoft was outstanding. Since this was my first Summit, I don't really have a frame of reference to know how it compares to previous years, but it did quickly become apparent to me that Microsoft really does listen to community as much as they are able. Obviously some groups and products are better able to do this than others, but that seems to be mostly ......
