Vegas has once again survived Hurricane Maggie. I am unpacked. Laundry is nearly done. I am headed to bed. I know, I am a bad blogger. I have so much to tell you, but I am exhausted. I promise, I promise.....I will write stuff.
But for now, go here and listen to one of the Milblog track panels about the future for Milblogs.
"Getting The Picture: What’s Next for Milblogs?" It's moderated by the very subtle Matt Burden of BlackFive. The panelists are Scott Henderson of MediaSauce, CJ Grisham, Bouhammer. Scott Kesterson was supposed to call in, but unfortunately that didn't happen.
We discussed Twitter quite a bit and how it can be used to help Milblogs and the causes dear to our hearts. Then we were discussing how we needed to be more proactive and pulling in people and getting our message out. In other words, not to be so insular.
Sooooooo, I got up to explain that I felt Twitter was invaluable in keeping us from being trapped in our own bubble. This is something I feel deeply about. Only 1% of American have a real connection with the military. We really need to reach out.
However...some people are really immature. As you can imagine when someone with perfect Bostonian diction discusses "Twitter" and "insular"....people fell on the floor.
I pouted to my Marine and he said "Them fuckahs. Laughing at ya like that. Bastids."
The rest of you should go listen and see if you don't agree that I'm right and my fellow attendees were bastids.
