I hinted about this in a recent post, today is my 3 year twitter-versary.
I first tweeted on Dec 15 2006 – and it feels so long ago.
As I write this, my scoreboard looks like this
Now what do my tweetstats show? Any difference from when I looked back in 2008?
Hmm – not twittering these days as much as I used to …
But I’m pretty consistent during the week
and I get busy in the afternoon.
My first follower was @mspecht! and I was @cameronreilly's first follower?
Unfortunately i cant pull back my first tweet as I get the error - “Too Many Tweets”
Yup, says it all :)
As soon as the PDC ended, the team has started work on MIX10.
This year’s event is at Mandalay Bay. Attendees who register by January 15th will get one free night at the hotel.
Registration has just opened, there is a call for content, and here’s a collection of blog bling……
Speaking of the Ides of March – why not call the conference MMX this year??? Missed opportunity folks….
A little milestone just crept up on me *again*
Six years ago - December 3 2003 - I made my first post here. At the time the blogs were sitting on http://weblogs.asp.net/, having recently moved from http://blogs.gotdotnet.com/.
So much has happened since then, from being on the telly, being in newspapers and magazine articles, special guest on podcasts, trips to the hospital, moving my family to the US and having adventures with a Snowmobile.
Some stats from my blog:

There’s another milestone approaching. Dec 15 2006. It’s when I started on Twitter!! But that’s the subject for another post!
During Steven Sinofsky’s keynote on Day 2 of the PDC09, he spoke how the windows team uses all the data they collect to make decisions about features and fix bug.
One thing that I found really interesting was the statistic about screen resolutions
Here’s the slide…
What surprised so many folks was that 1024 x 768 is such a dominant screen resolution. (I’m in that < .05% running at 1900 x 1200)
It made me wonder about the visitors to this blog and their screen resolution. The data shows something a bit different
It’s a different distribution, which makes sense since the folks who visit my blog would have higher resolution monitors – at least that’s my theory.
I also wonder what that that large “unknown” is? Could it be spiders crawling my blog?? or mobile devices maybe? i don’t really know.
It only seems like yesterday that I wrote my XLV post -- I’m celebrating another birthday today.
Today I’m XLVI
As happened last year, I’ve received best wishes from my friends via email,tweets, re-tweets, facebook and these started the day before, due to my down under crew.
Thank you to all who left me a note – I will get back to each and everyone of you!
Now some information about my age: It is a Wedderburn-Etherington number, an enneagonal number and a centered triangular number. It is the sum of the totient function for the first twelve integers. 46 is the largest even integer that can't be expressed as a sum of two abundant numbers. It is the 13th semiprime. It is the atomic number of palladium, the number of human chromosomes and the (decimal) value of the ASCII code for the period (full stop), as well as the code for international direct dial phone calls to Sweden.
This year, I am away from home, but I do get to celebrate my birthday at PDC09, with thousands of fellow geeks. There’s even a geekfest in the evening (which I’m thinking is surprise birthday party for me – how cool could that be!!!!!).
As I look ahead, I’m see a what others did at age 46:
and can wonder what lies ahead for me…
I’m in LA this week for the Professional Developers Conference – for me it’s a time to catch up with friends from all over the world, connect with customers and partners again, and as Steve Clayton says, “It’s also a time to fill my brain with tech talk”.
Oh, and speaking of filling brains and big heads, the hilight so far has been spotting david lempher’s big head on a poster
It’s been a while (11 months actually) since I looked at the search keywords that keep bringing people to my blog.
It’s funny. I haven’t posted much at all during this year (infact 12 posts September 2009 (3), August 2009 (1), July 2009 (1), June 2009 (1), May 2009 (2), April 2009 (1), March 2009 (1), January 2009 (2) before today), yet I keep getting a steady stream of visitors to the blog.
So, what are those popular terms that keep bring people back to my blog posts?
Yup, there’s a definite theme going on here…..
