Great work!

Thanks @danohu for getting started with this, I also added some contacts which we used for last year’s conference.

it might come in handy when we do a twitter press conference before Lote4. Also, pinging @Ben and @Lauren- if you guys want to share your findings from the Case Study Adventure with wider audiences this (growing) list could help.

Time to grow and actually use this

Hi @danohu, I’m wondering if you could help ping these people on twitter and invite them to the so called twitter press conference next Tuesday at noon? Think it’s better than doing it from the @edgeryders (impersonal) account. Also hope you can join in?


If you think it’s worth it, we might send in email invitations to Lote4 too?

Do you think anyone at Emergent Berlin or hsbp camp be interested too? Also pinging @Hazem, since you guys seem to have connection with quite great networks.
