My first tweet up - one on one with Justin Lanier
Pretty cool evening recently. Tried to explain it to friend. Went down something like this.
Him: "What are you up to tonight?
Me: "Hooking up with a guy from the math twitter blogosphere"
Him: "What's that?"
Me: Long explanation about #MTBoS
Him: "Do you know him?"
Me: "Not really"
Him: "Do you know where he is from?
Him: "Is it safe?"
Me: "Ya of course it is safe!"
Of course it is safe - in a way. The #MTBoS is a wonderful place. People share, contribute, vet ideas, and get to kinda know each other.
Then this happens:
And it is great. We talk about teaching and education. We talk about math. We share ideas. We tell stories.
We share personal stuff. We put a real face to a name we know online.
We tweet about our tweet up.
We both took a risk. We are that type of people.
We will meet again at twitter math camp in Jenks, Oklahoma this summer.
It is a great time to be in education-take risks-it is worth it.
As @BDMcLaurin would say freefall!
