Tweetup in Winnipeg, Manitoba – #SMMBT

"I'm having a beer at Earl's. Come down before the Tweet-Up." says the text message from JF Ratthé, the expert of Downtown Winnipeg Condo's. I don't like beer, but I do like JF, so I go. ;) JF is what Social Media is all about. He is a connector, through and through. He is funny, engaging and - above all - he is passionate. I don't think it's possible for anyone to know as much about Condo living in downtown Winnipeg than JF. JF is one of the original Winnipeg Tweet Up friends that I made when I first came back to visit Winnipeg a few years ago. SMMBT Tweetup Matthew Shepherd (@MatShepSeo) is the mastermind behind the #SMMBT tweetups. This evening marked the 3rd one, and I found out about through my good friend David (more info on him shortly), his friend (and my twitter pal) Bridget Gallagher &  Meetup.com. One of the highlight presentations of the event ...

Nashville – No country singers, but plenty of Social Media nerds.

It's amazing how quickly the highway passes when you're driving nearly 100 miles per hour. Ummm, anyway...

I found a hip-hop station... No luck on the country singer thing. ...

Well, it's not so much that the rumors were false, per se, ...
