A couple of years back, I was attending Gartner Symposium, and the analyst presenter started talking about Digital Natives and Digital Immigrants. The natives are technology savvy youngsters who have grown up in an always connected, always on world. Digital Natives find new technologies to be intuitive. They are at ease in navigating the blogosphere and the social networks. And they tweet. On the other hand, we have the Digital Immigrants. They… are we. If you are over age 30, you most likely have your hands full trying to figure out what social tools you should invest your time in? When should you post on Facebook vs. Linked In? And why the heck everyone is talking about Twitter? I’ve been a member of the twittering class for about 18 months. My stats say I have made 1449 updates have 830 followers, and I am following 805 other tweeters. I post about a broad set of interests, from EA to the Technology Incubator I run (Tech Ranch Austin) to some of my more esoteric interests like glass blowing and HDR photography. You can read them all by following me twitter.com/jonaslamis.
