See, some copy and paste and twitter writes the blog post for you 😉
Of course just when I wanted to save it, my browser froze on me 🙁 I was so mad that I closed the computer and only this morning started again. Was the course of letting others write this post?
My Twitter window was still open, but when I selected ‘Older’ posts, it didn’t take into account the time that had passed since. So I had to go back and back. I got until ‘and the winners are’ about 11 hours ago, but then Twitter wouldn’t let me go further back. Was really eerie: Twitter has a stream of conscious memory of 11 hours. I am sure they cut that for performance reasons.
Was a great event. So happy that the streaming worked out, had many occasions at Future Salons, where we were streaming, but didn’t get out of the firewall settings of SAP. Ustream was great, will use it for the Salons from now on too.
Thanks everyone for being part of it.
