We Are All #Yeg’gers

Several weeks back, I noticed the prominence of a community-based Twitter hashtag in my network stream and made a few inquiries that led to a pair of well-read blog posts about the twitizens of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and their energetic social media community. I’m happy to say that Edmonton – #yeg – continues to impress.
Since those posts:
I’ve virtually met the CIO of Edmonton and planned a face-to-face chat for his next S.F. Bay Area swing in April – CIO Chris J. Moore drives a car plated “YEGIT,” FTW!;
Roma Sobieski made me an honorary Yegger;
and Edmonton firmly positioned itself as a local leader in the open gov/Gov 2.0 movement.
I guess you could say I’m yegstatic about Edmonton.

  1. Very masterfully done Adriel! Was it Woody Allen that said success was mostly about showing up? Showing up is important but recognizing and creating opportunities while you’re “there” makes the difference between moderate success and great success.

    We need to work the #tvt concept.

    Keep up the good work,

    Joe
