Notes for 12/7/2008

Tonight I went to volunteer at Santas Anonymous with Sharon, Diane, and Andrea (I think Alain was there too, but we didn’t run into him). A few of us on Twitter were thinking about some sort of pre-Christmas tweetup, and Brittney suggested a Wrapping Tweetup! She couldn’t make it unfortunately, but my thanks go to her for getting the idea and wiki page out there.

Santas Anonymous is quite the operation! Our wrapping tweetup turned into more of a bagging tweetup actually, as our job was to take the wrapped presents and get them into tagged garbage bags ready for delivery. We spent a couple hours there, but could easily have spent more because the piles of gifts seem unending! Lots of children will be happy on Christmas morning thanks to Santas Anonymous.

If you’d like to volunteer, you can drop in on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday from 9am to 9pm until December 19th. Check the website for more details.

Here are my weekly notes:

  1. Hey Mack,

    I’m a producer at the Agenda with Steve Paikin (he’s the journalist who MC’ed the English language leaders debate last election).

    Your post about the various twitter feeds was really useful, so I just wanted to leave a comment and let you know we’re reading you.
