hash tag "delmarva"

I have opted to link my SPOT "ok" messages, which are sent when we raise the anchor in the morning and drop it at the end of Spartina's sailing day, distributed by the twitter social network.  Why?  I'm not really sure.

Part of it is curiosity.  I've been in the communications business for over thirty years and I'm fascinated by the recent changes in the ways we communicate.  Starting this blog a few years ago was also inspired by curiosity.

I have added two hash tags - #delmarva and #easternshore - to the ok messages.  Those hash tags won't make much sense when posted here or in an email to friends and family, but it will link the "ok" messages, and this blog, to twitter followers on the Eastern Shore.  So what does that lead to?  I'm not really sure.  Guess we'll find out.

Apparently, I'm following you on Twitter. And didn't know it. Far as I knew, I've only been following in your wake.

We need to discuss twitter, the Internet, publishing etc, hopefully while sailing.
