Recent Microblog Posts – November 10, 2009

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

Just noticed that I passed the 1,500 post mark on this blog.
And I wanted to mention that The Kennedy-Mighell Report podcast has talked Tom and me into letting it have it’s own Twitter account – @tkmreport. The podcast had been complaining (a lot) lately about how it was “totally unfair” that our book had its own Twitter account (@collabtools), while it did not have one yet. The situation is now rectified.
But, I know, that’s not the reason you’re here. You’re here because you want to get the latest collection of posts from DennisKennedy.Microblog, which is a supplement to this blog that can be found on Twitter at @dkennedyblog. I invite you to become a follower. An explanation of the microblog can be found here.
