Practicing community 101 and celebrating friends

Very short blog since I am “supposed” to be on vacation in Orlando with the family. Community 101 states be happy for your community and celebrate all events. Two great events to celebrate:

1. Eric’s a friend I met at BarCamp a few months ago and we’ve been chatting about a bunch of different things and I was pleased to hear he joined SocialText. Congratulations Eric, its a great company.

2. Speaking of SocialText, its new Chairman is also another great guy and good friend Ross Mayfield, who just this week raised a good $9.5 Million series C and hired a new CEO.

So what’s this got to do with community 101? This blog itself is a community of mostly good friends, that I have made over the years and I just realized they matter a lot more to me now.
