maybe over Christmas. I find TR is usually enough on-line activity for me, though.
I don't know that I have any unique experiences or skills. I'm just another geek among many. I rarely have anything I think is worth bringing to the attention of others, don't know who I'd make aware of it anyway, and am usually way back off the cutting edge of new tech or trends. Don't get me wrong; I have a positive self-image, a reasonably decent skill set, and a good sense of professional competence, but I'm nothing unique or unusual in IT.
I've created Twitter accounts at least four times, as recently as September, and I get even less from it than LinkedIn. I cannot figure out how so-called 'conversations' occur. I can't find anyone I consider worth 'following'. As noted above, I have almost nothing new contribute, and none of it within a 140-character limit. Mostly though, I dislike the personal tweets of those I've followed for professional reasons. (If you read my previous post / term paper, that will come as no surprise.) Either the 'wheat to chaff' ratio on Twitter is too low, or I don't know how to separate the two.
