The Twouble with Triangle Tweetup

This is my 799th post on Blogger. I follow 799 people on Twitter. The world is crashing in around me. I am the Rab. I organize tweetups. I am however rarely in tweetup photo booths. I retweet a lot. I abuse hashtags. I am sarcastic. I am very meta and/or streaming my consciousness pretty much 24/7/365. I am not a blogger but I play one on the interwebz. I will not fix your computer problem. I do declare that I am. Here is a list of lists. It's what I do. Everything about Triangle Tweetup 2.0 (that really means: the 2nd tweetup of 2009 BTW).

10 Photo Sets
5 Videos or places to find videos...
  1. Tweetup Panel: Business, Brands and Twitter, with @theRab, @DavidBThomas, @thorstenkessler, moderated by the @kbodnar32 (many youtube videos by @updownmostly)
