On Thursday morning two weeks ago, I called my colleague and friend, Terrence, to congratulate him on his upcoming role as President of the local chapter of our training association. Just like Terrence he called me back right away. That afternoon, he was working out, collapsed and died.
Here. Then not here.
My mind couldn’t make sense of it. I called my mom and realized how lucky I was that she was there to pick up the phone and talk to me. It’s been a strange season and a sad time.
Okay gentle blog readers. If you are like me, you have embraced blogging but not tweeting. Today I gave a presentation for ASTD-LA where tweeting became an intregral and interesting part. I will share it with you now so that together we can embrace this new tool.
Colleague and fellow Board member, Terrence Wing, tweeted as a way to take notes. Basically, he was sharing his notes with all of his Twitter followers. And there were intelligent learning professionals out there who began to comment (tweet) in real time about the content of my presentation.
Cristie Mullins from Evanston, Illinois virtually “joined us” and so did Donna Bailey from Salt Lake City. The training began at 8:10am this morning. What follows is a portion of the Tweet Transcript.
