Dinner with a Homeless Dude
Meeting Mark Horvath, found of Invisible People.

As it always does, it began with a tweet.... 20 minutes later I was having dinner with a homeless dude. Actually, you can safely blame @GregHartle for this fiasco. Him and @tahlari, to be precise. After seeing @tahlari send a tweet announcing a presentation by Mark Horvath, champion of the cause to bring light to the homeless: Have you or someone you know been affected by homelessness? Please join us tomorrow for Mark Horvath's presentation at 280 main st at 6:30pm I was reminded of a blog post I read back in January from @GregHartle's project: Ten Dollars & A Laptop: Socks and a Smile: A Glimpse Into Homelessness In America Something about the socks stuck in my mind, and I remembered @hardlynormal's name. So I responded to @GregHartle: Hey @greghartle, isn't @hardlynormal one of your friends? We are both in Peg City at the same time. Would love to connect. #Winnipeg #intro Greg responded in the affirmative, and ...

As I'm known to do, I tweeted my cell phone number and asked for some moral support in the form of inspiring or funny text messages ...

Crowdsourcing Luxury Hotel Reservations in NYC, NY

Some may call it ambivalence, others may call it laziness... They may both have a point. Confession: I left my hotel reservations up to my twitter friends. What is the best luxury hotel in NYC? Any suggestions? #nyc (view original tweet) The truth is, though, I have never been to NYC before, so I thought I would ask for some suggestions from my social ...
