Its a meet up of twitter users.

Not sure if thats a new phrase? or how often it’s used.

I have organised a couple and been to a few more.

It’s fun, a whole bunch of people from all walks of life, getting together to meet up.

We take our online networks from online to the real world.

Looking around the table today, it was neat, I couldn’t imagine any other circumstances upon which such unique, different characters would all end up in the same place.

There are different careers, genders, personalities, backgrounds, the common thread was twitter.

In our increasingly virtual world, communications can be via avatars, what you actually say / share with the world.

What I really like is, the bias is gone, judgements are not made on race / age / gender, it’s moreso on what you contribute, and I think thats great.

The internet truly is creating an even playing field for all.  I look forward to the next Tweetup.

We all exist in little pods, groups, communities, tribes

I prefer pods, as they describe the structure, better.  separate distinct pods.

Here are some i belong to:

  • Last.fm 
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • This blog

There are some overlay between these (majorly twitter/myblog) however they are all separate.

Offline i belong to other pods, families, groups.  

We always have, but as interaction platforms change (from meeting a pub to online) our membership increases.

I wonder if over time we are only going to exist in more and more pods? how about in a crisis like a natural disaster?
