Social Media: That's How We Roll...

I'm about to break the fourth wall, here. Something I specifically avoid most of the time on this blog, but this example is just too good not to document. Forgive me just this once, but I'm going to mention my day job.

I get home from work today, and I hit my RSS feeds in Google Reader. Most of these are typical subscriptions, but a few are Google-driven blog searches. The one that searches blog posts for mention of "The Henry Ford" (where I am the network engineer), strikes this post on Re*Move. The first line?
Joe and I have decamped this week quite a lot to the cafe in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, because the wifi's so much faster than the Dearborn Inn, where we've been staying.

Hehe. You're welcome fellas.

They go on to say:
Proving the power of Twitter to get people together, we tweeted we were here and yesterday were soon joined by Carrie Nolan, a PR manager from the museum, who came to say hi and tell us how things are going.

Check out their video interview with Carrie for details on the impromptu Tweet hookup. (Plus, of course, more over-the-top love for our WiFi.)

I just *love* having all of our hard work (on the network, on the public WiFi, and on all of our social media efforts) rewarded. Heaping piles of kudos on Carrie!
