I’m In Deep

 

 

 

Thanks to Yagoob Amani for sharing this image on Picasa.

I got married 9-1/2 years ago and didn’t change my name.

I got a new job 5-1/2 years ago and didn’t change my approach to work.

I moved to a new house 3 years ago and didn’t change the wall colors.

I joined Twitter 3 weeks ago and have already changed my email signature, my Facebook feed, my LinkedIn profile, my blog’s widgets, and my bedtime reading rituals.

And here’s why. To I quote Ryan Cordell, the author of that article:

One of the most common dismissals of Twitter sounds something like this, “I don’t need to know what a bunch of people had for breakfast.” My response to this is always, “if that what you’re seeing on Twitter, you’re following the wrong people.” Twitter can help academics make and maintain connections with people in their fields, find out about interesting projects and research, or crowdsource questions and technical problems.

It’s official. I’m in deep.
