Nifty Fifty: List of Lists – Top 50 Men & Women of Technology on Twitter #Nifty50 2012
Here’s the Men’s list of Top Twitter Tech Men. I’m very touched to be included. I’m in very good company.
For me these types of lists are a great source of inspiration and networking. Everyone loves to be included on a list. People almost always seek to include a few people you’ll never heard of. Sometimes that’s them being creative and sometimes it’s you for having your head buried in the sand.
It’s a big world out there despite how small it feels. There’s a lot of people. Lists are such a great way of connecting people. They are a form of bonding. Ultimately a list is what you make it. It could just be a list or it could be an excuse for a conversation. Best of all you don’t have to be on the list to derive value. Congratulating people who made it on to the list is a great conversation starter.
One of my favorite List makers is Margie Clayman. I loved this list “100 People Who Don’t Get Enough Credit Online“. She has a really nice soft touch in her writing.
Any quality list connects people. It’s always worth checking off who you know and who you’d like to know.
I’ve proud to have so many friends and acquaintances on the #Nifty50 Men’s list. I know 11 of them. Which means that’s 39 people to say “Hi” to.
Here’s the Women’s list of Top Twitter Tech Women.
