WWW2010 : The Tweets

Using an export tool developed by Infinity Plus One (that’s @yoni – thanks to Jared Spool – @jmspool – for the tip), here are my tweets from the Future Web conference (#fw2010) that was concurrent with WWW2010 in Raleigh last week. I tweeted as @kegill as well as @kathy_live (sometimes same tweet from both accounts, but I tried to avoid that).

You can follow/read/find the 60 folks tweeting at #fw2010:
