I have met incredible people through Twitter and I have decided I need to share them — lucky you! First up, the lovely and talented Holly MacKenzie aka @stackmack.

StackMack: Conversation, kindness and passion. If there can’t be some serious word play, I lose interest quickly regardless of the other things they’re bringing to the table. It’s cliche to say, but seeing how they treat the people around them.

#Humblebrag

Wouldn’t be awesome if Yelp added a “Humblebrag” button next to “Useful,” “Cool” and “Funny”?

I’d click it here.

Try for a moment to imagine the fights that would ensue if Facebook offered Humblebrag next to Like. And then wish like crazy for it to happen.
