#50 Friends I Can’t Wait to Meet

After bumping into Guy Kawasaki’s use of #80 How Twitter Improved My Blog, this might be one of those things gifts that just keep giving in this whole crazy social media world. So I will now steal what I think is my household’s 3 use of a topic, but one that I think will be fun. To that end, I embark on friends I can’t wait to meet!

I’ve taken this multiple ways – people I know and yet I haven’t met and people I don’t know whom I would like to meet. I’m also adding people who I would like see again soon/don’t see enough of…

Chris Brogan – This guy is someone I haven’t met, but he just he just get me to use that twitter thing. I may randomly call at some point, but I doubt I will every put my cell number on the public web. So this is in the haven’t met and don’t know bucket.  I also have another 97 things to blog on because of him.

Chris Lyman – I’ve emailed on and off with this guy for almost 10 years, he sits in my address book, just waiting for the next reasonably interesting mass address book note I have. His open letter was fun to watch as well. I just don’t make it to culver city-ish that much and when I get in the region its normally San Diego basically and I don’t have like 6 extra hours.

Michael Wilson – I’ve been chatting and emailing with this guy for nearly 3 months, good news is I hope/look to meet him soon in person.  Plus Small World Labs is good stuff.   I should have gone to ACL, but too close to the due date and not worth the risk.

Ross Mayfield – I’ve only chatted with this guy a couple of times, but one of the biggest brains I’ve ever interacted with and passionate!  The guy is just crazy quick on the uptake, I will ping him the next time I’m in the bay.

Allison – So I have this random phone number in my phone that for the life of me I can’t remember who it is. I accidentally dialed it like a month ago, she called back and left a really lengthy vm – even knew both my wife and my name. I have to think we met last new years, but just weird that she left a voicemail like we went WAY back.  Just to give credit, I got the New years context from her vm. I guess i’ll see in 90 days at panic.

The people I don’t see enough of…

The Atlanta Crew – This is the whole group of folks, who while I live within 18 miles of all of them, I still don’t see them enough. (Jay, Karin, Warshaw, Scott, Alicia, Jake, Ingrid, Gianna, Jason, Doug, Katie, Naylor, David, Claire, Chicken, Stacy and Jason, et. al). I guess the “baby shower” is the next opportunity for this.

Dan, Della and David – I’ll see y’all at new years.

    I thought I’d stop by and say hello. This came up on my Google Alert for “Small World Labs”. I looked for a name attached to this blog but couldn’t find one. Thanks for the “top people” pick. I’m flattered but sure you’ll only be disappointed 😉

    I’ll zip you an email Michael, I’m not sure I’m in for the loss of anonymity – yet. I clearly may be disappointed. But your spam based email is a good idea, no need to clutter the small world labs inbox, cheers!
