A number of 'tweeps' showed up today for a 'tweetup' -- don't ask. LOL. We heard 'names' like...
Tabby who has a dog named Bruce.
...and a guy named Bruce who has a cat named Tabby. Go figure.
We discussed how Twitter, Facebook and other social-networking sites can help missions and global awareness in general.... eg. the recent Mumbai story... being reported minute by minute among tweeters onsite at the hotels under seige.
[Visit the UBcafe's photostream.]
We also met a number of cafe friends & neighbors... and got to know Betty, a longtime friend of Sister Elease. By the time we were done, not only had Betty learned to get online and surf... but she also was able to make a purchase at an online printing store.
And this is what 'Ask Anything Saturday' is all about -- HOSPITALITY... pancakes & wifi -- meeting new people and helping each other learn more via the information highway and how we can all help change lives & communities.

Just a quick heads-up... re the tweetup... stay tuned HERE. *smile*
Got no idea what Twitter is, or how it could be used to expedite missions work? Come join us Sat. November 29th... 9am at the cafe. Listen in. Everyone's welcome.
Maybe even go get a (free) ID at Twitter.com... and start connecting with other tweeters. And hey, just in case you don't think it's not biblical... think again. Jesus said it first...
