  1. What a great way to kick off the series, Sarah. Jeff is always up to something interesting backed by his enthusiastic outlook. Appropriately enough, I feel like I’ve gotten to know the both of you online through technology over the years even though we’ve net met in person.

  2. I’m truly going to love this new feature Sarah! Having met Jeff in person, I can say that he is so humble about all of his abilities and expertise. Our Church is blessed to have someone with his skill base doing such amazing work. Great interview!

  3. Thanks for the kind words, Lisa and Mark!

    In reference to your last question, Lisa, I’d have to say that Twitter is my favorite platform *for what I do*; I grew up using AOL Instant Messenger, IRC chat, and other chat-like platforms, and Twitter is very much like those communications mediums; I can have close-to-real-time communication with someone on Twitter to discuss something.

    Of course, when things are more weighty than a few 140-character tweets, we’ll jump over to chat, Skype, or email, but it’s an excellent first-contact or ‘ping me if you need me’ platform.

    On the flipside, it’s also quite a nuisance if I leave it open too much. I don’t even have Twitter on my Dock on my Mac; I typically only use it on my iPad, which helps me focus on work while I’m on my computer.

    Facebook and Google+ are (for me) more of an extension of my blog; more of a broadcast medium with comments and replies. I still like using my blog as my primary tool for communicating, though, as it’s not in a silo or under anyone else’s control. I’ve kept it going since about 2004 (before Facebook!), and will keep it running for as long as I’m alive, most likely.

    • Jeff, I’m so with you on this. Twitter is a great chatty-type tool. For me, it’s like a lunchroom that you can pop in or out of. And blogging is, well, da bomb. (Addicted much?)

      Thanks so much for being game for this interview and for chiming in in the combox too! Keep up the great work!

  4. Your article shows you have a lot of background in this topic. Can you direct me to other articles about this? I will recommend this article to my friends as well. Thanks
