To non-techie friends on twitter and the facebook: Sorry about this week

Hey there: this week is EclipseCon. It's a technical conference in Santa Clara revolving around the software tool called Eclipse. So, most of my tweets are going to be about EclipseCon, at least until Thursday. (These tweets wind up as status updates on The Facebook.) So, sorry about that.

If you're on The Facebook, you probably wonder why my status messages say "#eclipsecon". Well, that's basically a meta-tag indicating what my message is about. Then, people who want to know what's going on at EclispeCon, they can just look at the realtime results at http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%23eclipsecon. (Interested in Battlestar Galactica? Search for #bsg. Same goes for #lost, or #chicken, or whatever.)

So, you know, I kinda likes the Twitter. You should try it, and if you do, we can follow each other.
