I am humbled that they choose to follow me as I depict our industry's evolution. Thank you all for your support.

My Twitter account also started in 2010 has over 1400 followers as well

Our online magazine was started 23 years ago before social media identities like, LinkedIn launched on May 5, 2003, and Twitter Twttr launched to the public in July 2006, were vehicles of how special interest folks could find each other. We are working to build bridges from our long online history of controlled blogging of ongoing industry information with these and other social media of the day. You can help as we see as a landing pad for information that needs to be shared with our industry. We never throw anything away and it always resides at the same URL.
