    I’m with you for all the reasons you mention for blogging and twitter. I don’t use Yelp (yet anyway).

    I’ve even submitted abstracts to conferences to speak on “How to Use Twitter to Increase Productivity” or something along those lines.

    I bet there will be a point of diminishing returns…but for now, Twitter (and blogging) has allowed me to meet so many different people that share the same passion that I do. I’m not even talking about Oracle specifically either…just IT people who want to learn and make their lives easier.

      I’m hoping not to limit the people I meet to the IT crowd, so I follow quite a few beer enthusiasts. I should add an entry to my ‘Why Twitter’ list – when in a new town, I tweet for good beer suggestions!

    and restaurant suggestions (aka DragonFly). Point taken though. I don’t think I necessarily limit myself, but right now, the majority are definitely of the IT persuasion.

    Congrats on your new Blog Jeff! I have no issues with blogging and I think it can be very helpful. Wouldn’t mind one of my own, but there’s just one problem……NO Freek’n Time! If you have the time to do this and keep it up, all the more power to ya! Just one suggestion…way too much black and white – a little color or a pic here or there might be nice – again just a suggestion. Best of luck to ya and your new blog!

      You’re so right on the black & white Dennis. Right now I’m concentrating on content, but will get pictures going ASAP. Especially as I start publishing my Toad stuff, would be impossible to follow/concentrate without screenshots.

      If you want time, you have to make it :)

    I use twitter and blogging to promote my site but i am not familiar withthe yelp! I think It’s my time to explore that just like exploring the best Charleston caterers in town.
