Lynne Herrlherr @markwagner Because you can learn so much in so little time. Great source of immediate feedback. Connects with digital natives.



And my later question about hashtags:

markwagner I'm teaching folks about hashtags. Do you use them? I'm at the #cue conference.


And a couple of later responses about hashtags:
