Archie heading to his first Tweet Up!

IMG_4484

A child of our times …  yes Archie is finalising travel arrangements to attend his first Tweet Up at the grand age of 5 months.  For those of you not familiar with Twitter (stop gasping Aucklanders – there are loads of Mainlanders who still feel tweeting is for birds ;-)) it is kind of like texting but you can do it online and can communicate with a worldwide audience – a ‘tweet up’ is when Twitter users ‘meet up’ in the flesh for a bit of socialising and networking (a tax deductible party 🙂 ).  The get together is instigated by a Twitter user(s) and then the details are spread via Twitter.  The Christmas Tweet Up is being held on December 4th from 6pm at Deschler’s Bar in Auckland and is being organised by two lovely tweeters, Jayson Bryant  (owner of a fab little wine shop)and Amie McCarron (very talented contemporary artist). 

Archie, Aaron and I are really looking forward to meeting up with many of those we interact with online, it’s always interesting to meet the face behind the avatar ;-).  Tweet ups are a blast and allow folk to easily get to know new people who they’d never have met in their usual social circles – they certainly challenge the viewpoint that computer social interaction causes a drop in real-life socialising. 

We are really fortunate to have been offered accommodation at a friend’s place (thanks so much Amanda and Rob) and as they have four boys, their house comes armed with kid’s stuff – so need to cart portacots etc up the country – yay!

    How cute.
    I am also hoping to come to the tweet-up. I often miss out as Husband works away and we have no family to babysit (and can’t afford a babysitter). However, have been assured this venue is kid-friendly, so I might be able to come and say hi for at least 30 mins!

    That would be great – yes we too have no idea how long Archie will be happy to socialise – such is life with kids, there’s always a potential fiasco 🙂
