Liking Twitter for JavaOne

I'm liking Twitter in a major way for letting others know what I am doing at JavaOne, and for me keeping up with others as well. I'm sure I have more than 7 friends on Twitter, but I just haven't had the time to build my twitter network.

For me, the big question is will I still use it post-J1? I think so, albeit not with the same punch output (I like to watch boxing :-) ). Only time will tell.

Twittering CommunityOne & JavaOne

Instead of only blogging about JavaOne this year, I've decided to follow others (eg: here & here)  add Twitter in to the mix. Feel free to subscibe to my twitter feed (via SMS, IM or RSS feed).

Twitter augments blogging on JavaOne because:

 

  • Attending a conference is highly transactional, from meeting people, attending sessions and seeing something new and cool on the show floor
  • My cell phone battery lasts longer than my laptop battery.
  • More frequent updates because I can send SMS messages while standing in line(s) for sessions.

Does this mean I will not blog on JavaOne? Nope. I'll blog while at JavaOne. But the blog posts will be less frequent and, honestly, more thought out and strategic in nature.

Time to go spend time with the family before I leave for the week.
