Top Twitter user in Charlotte!

Sunday, 04 October 2009 15:00

OMG I am one of Charlotte’s top twitter users!!! No, for real. It was in the newspaper (link) so it must be true right? Ok, maybe the metric chosen by the writer – number of followers – is completely bogus and not representative of anything other than the accounts ability to gain followers. Unfortunately every social networking site puts an emphasis on followers/friends/connections which generally makes people think it matters. An account with 500 connections to the CEOs of the Fortune 500 is probably a little more desirable that just about any other list if that is your target audience. However, having a large number of follower/friends/connections is not necessarily a bad thing.

Joomla CCK Showdown - JoomlaWorks K2

Saturday, 30 May 2009 13:39

I am a big fan of JoomlaWorks, so I figured I would start with K2. I will try to keep my bias to a minimum, but I did expect K2 to dazzle me from what I had already seen. The component is in beta at this time and available for free download. I got a copy and jumped right in.
