    As a follow up to my Facebook post I am amazed at the last week or so that I have spent online. Since starting the blog I have had over 100 individuals visit the site. A lot of those have come through referrals from other sites or social networks (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and MyBlogLog primarily).

    Since starting to Twitter I have made 111 updates. I have 50 some odd people I follow and about 30+ who follow me. Some I know directly, some only online and some not at all outside of Twitter.

    On Facebook I have just about 60 friends ranging from folks I went to elementary school with to VC’s that I pitched for our last round of funding. I am seeing pictures of friends and their families, writing on their walls, laughing with my cousin. Amazing interactions considering that last week there was next to none between us.

    LinkedIn which was my primary online network before I started this blog a couple weeks ago is still the largest for me with well over 150 connections. I have used it to find jobs, reconnect, get advice amongst other things.

    I know the Twitter and Facebook numbers are pretty low compared to a lot of online folks but it is still mind boggling to me. With a little bit of effort I have been able to use these tools to not only seek out but in many cases connect or re-connect with a large number of people in very short time. Whats also really interesting to me is that it seems to be snowballing with many of my Facebook and Twitter connections having recently joined. Should be interesting to see how this all evolves.

    Had a really neat experience watching/interacting with Jeff Pulver and Chris Brogan on a live broadcast today. The interesting part was that Jeff was hosting broadcasting using an evdo card and a laptop through a somewhat experimental/extremely cool new platform, BlogTV. All while driving down the Long Island Expressway and through the Midtown Tunnel (they did drop out for a bit there).

    The platform allows for multiple hosts with switching of the focus between them (user controlled even). It also has a chat function which was very effective for the small group that was watching it. The content was of course live and as such very raw but it was very amusing nonetheless. You can check out archived video of the drive here.

    hockey hall of fame

    Nothing beats the finals of any sport but for me the Stanley Cup playoffs is the most gut wrenching, heart stopping one of all. Watching the Anaheim – Ottawa game right now and it is 2 -2 in the 3rd. Players are pumped and getting extremely physical. The goaltenders are practically standing on their heads to stop goals.

    Lord Stanley would be proud.

    Wow. It took me a while to get on board with this one but my network on here seems to be spreading like wildfire.

    I am finding people on there who I honestly had never expected to hear from or know of again. People from South Park Elementary, Oak Bay High School, my work time in Vancouver and even more recent friends like Jeff Pulver. And for whatever reason it seems like more and more people from way back are jumping online. Heck I even found a group of people planning a 13 year reunion for my HS grad class. Freaking amazing!

    Now I just need some tighter integration between WordPress, Twitter and Facebook. Seems like that is coming along with the Facebook Apps.

    Well we aren’t there yet but today sure feels like a good start. Going to get to about 90 today in the city. Not a bad way to begin the Memorial Day weekend. Shutting down the office at 3 today so everyone can enjoy it (well everyone who works at Tremor anyway).
