Bloggers & Tweeters Unite!

Today!

Okay Adirondack Bloggers, Twitterers, and Friends, let’s roll this thing ADK style. I’ve been talking to Tour Pro at Adirondack Base Camp and Bill at High Peaks Resort about organizing a Tweet-Up/Adirondack Blogger Meet-up. In fact, we’ve got one planned.

How does this sound for cool? A TweetUp/MeetUp outdoors, overlooking Mirror Lake, on the deck at Reflections at High Peaks Resort! It’s a gorgeous spot, and we hope that by holding the event in centrally located Lake Placid, we’ll be able to gather many tweeters and bloggers from all sides. Please do come hang out with us- it’s going to be awesome.

Here’s something even more awesome – Whiteface Mountain – @SkiWhiteface at Twitter – has come on board as the sponsor of the event! Thanks, Whiteface! Hope you’re able to visit with us! We’d love to have as many friends as possible. Although no RSVP is required, you can leave a comment here and we’ll know to expect you. Please do pass the word far and wide – you’re more than welcome to copy over this blog post. (That’s a hint.)

The Great Adirondack Meet-up/Tweet-up
Thursday, July 16, 2009 from 5pm to 7pm
High Peaks Resort, 2384 Saranac Ave (at the corner of Main Street)
Lake Placid, New York
The bar will be available, food can be ordered from the menu

The Twitterondacks 04.08.09

birdWelcome to The Twitterondacks! Below are a few of the neat Adirondack posts I’ve seen on Twitter this week. My only rule is that I don’t post conversations between Twitterers. It’s all about interesting info, timely topics, and a link to the original tweeter.

Adirondacks retweets Press Republican‘s report on the long, drawn out, much talked about closure of Camp Gabriels.

High Peaks Resort points us toward Lake Placid’s requests for stimulus money.

From across the Lake, Brattleboro Reformer tweets news of the Vermont House’s final okay on Gay Marriage. More updates on that from the Post Star.

TourPro reminds us of Trout Season with a nifty Adirondack Fishing Guide. (pdf) It’s really pretty awesome – charts, descriptions, maps, info.

KateOH and I agree that Warrensburg and Old Forge might need to wrestle Lake George for the informal title of “Gateway to the Adirondacks.”

Mirror Lake Inn reminds us that ski season isn’t over in the Adirondacks – Wax those skis one more time! Whiteface Mountain is open on Easter!

AdkTrailhead points out the Fishing Tournaments set for Plattsburgh.

NCPR (our local NPR affiliate) is tweeting news stories! Now that is awesome! For instance, check out this story from Amy Ivy and Martha Foley about uncovering the garden, or Shawn Allee’s report about the Dirty Past and Hazy Future of coal. Rock on, NCPR.

twitter-birdWelcome to The Twitterondacks! Below are a few of the neat Adirondack posts I’ve seen on Twitter this week. My only rule is that I don’t post conversations between Twitterers. It’s all about interesting info, timely topics, and a link to the original tweeter.

TwentyFour01 has put together an awesome list of New York State Bloggers who also Twitter. From what I can tell, this is a list of actual “live” social Tweeters (as opposed to RSS feeds). Um, awesome!

Watertown Daily News is organizing a North Country TweetUp – Live Tweety Connectivity, 1pm at Panera on Saturday! (What’s a Panera?)

TourPro’s reps (and maybe yours too) are non-tweeters.

AdirondackDotNet reminds us that trout season starts … Today!

The hot story of the week undoubtedly belonged to the Danes. By the time I stopped counting I had 40-something tweets repeating the information about the Danish Thing. However, you know what is very, very interesting? The Twitter news was about twenty four hours ahead of the newspapers and our local bigbox media. (Did I just coin a new term?)

AdkCouncil tweets a super cool pic – Signs of Spring in the Adirondacks.

High Peaks Resort points out a neat new Adk Birding Guide.

Adirondacks tweets news from the NYS DOT concerning the closure of I87 from exits 28 to 30, June 8 through July 6.

The Press Republican expects to be tweeting news within a few weeks.

It’s just an opinion, but to me, watching the cold steely dollar amounts of  NCPR‘s fundraising drive tweeting by – with nary a folksy quip or fun local story in sight – makes my personal recession feel far more recessiony. “Update: $95,518.” Indeed. Cold hard cash ain’t folksy or fun. Where are you when we need a kind word, Jackie? Radio Bob? Todd? Help!

twitter-birdWelcome to The Twitterondacks! Below are a few of the neat Adirondack posts I’ve seen on Twitter this week. My only rule is that I (obviously) don’t post conversations between Twitterers. It’s all about interesting links, timely topics, good info, and a link to the original poster.

AdkTrailhead points out a Saranac resident’s win on Millionaire.

Adirondacks wishes “ADK Daily Enterprise would Twitter incoming stories. NCPR conspicuously absent. No sign of WNBZ. Adk media seriously behind the times.”

NCPR joined Twitter and is duly Tweeting … sort of.

The Press Republican joined – looking forward to good things!

SyracuseDotCom continues to lead providing Northern NY Twitter news content.

High Peaks Resort points out that Annie O’Shea is training in Lake Placid.

Adk_Council reports a video link concerning acid rain progress.

Adirondacks, TourPro, and Ivanmironchuk are buzzing about the (still conceptual) Adirondack Ice Cream Challenge.

Watertown is on the Twitter beat, and has a super fun profile background. You go, Watertown.

Sandmarg points out some Lake Placid “cool vintage kitch” for sale at Etsy.

Of course there’s lots more, even minute by minute! Twitter is pretty awesome. Join the conversation – in real time! We’re having tons of fun. You can visit Twitter by clicking any of the member links above, or by going to the Twitter Home Page.

The Twitterondacks 03.18.09

Well, before someone else jumps on it, I thought it would be fun to start a new mid-week feature – a Twitterondack Roundup.

twitter-birdThat is, a weekly post about some of the neat Adirondack things I’ve seen on Twitter each week. My only rule is that I (obviously) won’t be posting conversations between Twitterers. It’s all about interesting links, good info mentioned by folks during the week. Fun links and a link to the original poster. Have fun folks, and enjoy those first breezes of spring.

TourPro is the king of Adirondack Tags, and no one can knock him down.

High Peaks Resort points out my friend Corin’s post about Avalanche Pass.

AdkTrailhead buzzes news about the impending Adk Mountain Bike Ranch.

FallsBrookYurts just recently joined. Yurts are just plain cool.

And a few Local Business Favorites from Adirondacks (That’s me.)

Of course there’s lots more, even minute by minute! Twitter is pretty awesome. Join the conversation – in real time! We’re having tons of fun. You can visit Twitter by clicking any of the member links above, or by going to the Twitter Home Page.
