@PRSarahEvans and…T-Pain? Springfield, IL Tweetup for #ElginDay

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009, Springfield, Illinois held it’s first official Tweetup!  The folks from #ElginDay came down to Springfield to lobby for improvements to their city in the Capitol Building.  Posted below is a video and some photos from the event.  It was great to meet everyone and get to connect with some fellow Springfieldians.  Thanks to everyone who came and I hope you guys had as enjoyable a time as I did.  I’m definitely looking forward to the next tweetup/photowalk…stay tuned for more on that!

Attendees: @howardkang, @gotshoo, @adamstrong, @mochamomma, @Scott217, @PRSarahEvans, @RuthMunson, @jeremywilburn, and others who didn’t have twitter handles.

Men’s Basketball at the University of Illinois at Springfield

UIS Men’s Basketball vs. St. Ambrose on November 10, 2008.  First home game of the season for the men’s basketball team.  Here are a couple of shots from that game.  And by a couple I mean like 50-ish.

UIS Men’s Basketball vs. St. Ambrose on November 11, 2008.  UIS plays one NCAA Division I team per year.  Unfortunately for the guys, it falls the day after another game in which actually counted (vs. this game which was an exhibition).  The guys were tired, but they did a good job keeping the ISU team at bay, especially in the first half.

Talk about predicting the future…

So my post this morning about Dubai losing internet has come true here as well.  I cannot connect to the web server to edit any of the websites I’m working on right now…I haven’t been able to for the last hour.  I think it’s time for a lunch break and hopefully it’s back up when I return.

Broken Internet

For those of you east of us here in Springfield, IL:  Watch your weather…it’s started snowing here!  We’re expected to get up to 10 inches this afternoon/evening.

What would we do?

While starting my day by reading my blog feeds and news feeds, I came across this article from the Middle East. And then I started thinking…If something as simple as a “cut phone line” essentially could destroy our internet connection, this is a very real deal. That is certainly one way to stop the economy in a major way. I know I use the internet A TON throughout the day. In fact, I helped my girlfriend work on a project where she had to find stuff in the library (more on that later) last night. It was 10 questions and we had to find answers to them using the library for at least 7 of them. It took us two hours to answer 5 or 6 (she completed a couple earlier). And what’s crazy is that I am a pretty good “searcher” most of the time. We definitely take the internet for granted a lot of the time. Try working without it for a little bit and you’ll begin to see how helpful it really is.
