Charlotte WordCamp = The Ultimate Tweetup

Had a great time at WordCamp today. The crowd was a great mix of individuals with a highly varied level of experience with blogging. Twitter was a popular topic, and by a show of hands, it looked like about 80% of the ~100 people in attendance were Twitter users.

Personally, I saw a lot of familiar faces, connected new faces to familiar names, and connected with some folks for the first time. Here’s the run-down, in no particular order, as best as I could manage:

Twitterers I’ve met IRL before, and saw today:
@jakrose
@kateymarie
@underoak
@sarahada
@utkevdawg
@eyecharlotte
@jruckman
@indiebusiness
@lisahoffmann
@richtucker
@flc
@briancary

Twitterers I follow and met today for the first time:
@stuartwatson36
@charlotte_seo
@mcgstudio
@englishinvader

And, finally, some folks I now follow, but didn’t get a chance to speak to:
@trenchreynolds
@knightopia
@wattzilla
@stephmck76
@garynielson
@triunedesigns
@mrich1911
@chrisabates
@barnettwebsites

Wow. That’s a boatload of Twitterers. And that must only be about half the people who’s hands I saw raised. If I forgot to add you, or just never caught your twitter name, please let me know in the comments.

PS – maybe I should mention that I am @budesigns. :0) Also, the event has a Twitter presence at @cltwordcamp.
