Twitter dominated talks big and small at last year's BlogWorld — and the conversation landed in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Attendees at the Las Vegas social-media mecca were challenged to tweet
the hashtag #beatcancer, and it spread, setting a record for the most
tweets (700,000!) in a 24-hour period, and raising $70,000 for cancer
research, thanks to corporate partners eBay/PayPal and MillerCoors
Last weekend I attended the annual Blogworld and New Media Expo in Las Vegas and was struck by how much "real world" time the new media people spent with each other. It was almost as if all the blogging and new media tools are just a way for real world friends to get together. For those who came to Blogworld trying to unravel the mysteries of social media, the most important lessons came during the evening parties over dinner and at the bar.
