I had breakfast this morning with a client who, until today, I had never met in person.
A lot of what I do is phone and email based so it’s not all that unusual. But it was a fun reminder of how well you can get to know people these days online.
Jeff and I are Facebook friends too so I keep up with his goings on in that way. Totally random tidbits about his travels that give me a nice, loosely connected feeling.
We also share friends in the blogosphere. He’s a member of Team Fatty Seattle so we swapped training stories this morning and he gave me tips. Jeff does a lot of climbing on an average cycling day so he knows from whence he speaks!
This afternoon I’m hoping to connect with a colleague from a long long time ago who happens to be in town for the JavaOne show. See, now I wouldn’t have known that were it not for Facebook.
I heart social networking 🙂
Corny, but true.
