Care and Feeding

Hey! I finally got WordPress upgraded today. Woot! I should have done this a long time ago. Even though I had to do the upgrade manually, it was still pretty darn quick and easy. The interface is much nicer than the previous version’s. There are some newer plugins I need to check out. But I still don’t see a feature enabling the blog to write itself. 

How about a few interesting bits I’ve come across somewhat recently?

Right on the heels of my having visited local brewpub NXNW for the very first time, a co-worker pointed me to BeerMapping. I love beer. I’ll have to investigate this site further.

I’ve been exploring Twitter since this spring. You can follow me here. It seemed pretty silly at first. But then following a bunch of interesting people and getting active on it, it builds into a neat community and information stream. One of the coolest things to come out of Twitter so far, I heard about and participated in the first ever Austin Blood Drive TweetUp which was a blast. And on this coming Sept. 13th the Capital Area Food Bank is having their HAM-up Tweet-up

Twitter’s been a great way to meet new people and try to get more involved with the Austin tech community. I can get much more enthusiastic about social media that gets people away from their computers for a while and gets them more active in their community.

As social media goes, Facebook just hasn’t been doing it for me. But then maybe that’s because I’m not a real Facebook Gangsta.
