If you have been reading my blog lately, you may have noticed a definite Indiana bias creeping in. It is by design! A native of NYC, I have traveled though much of the US, and lived in several cities. Today I choose to make my home in Indy.
Beyond the good friends, and comfortable life style, I am intrigued by the potential of this city to be so much more in the next decade. Like a farmer in the spring time, I see the seedlings of a great city, with art, culture, and tremendous business opportunities. And yet, we are often overlooked, the Midwest’s best kept secret.
Today, December 3, 2009 (12:30pm EST / 11:30am CST) tweeters from the banks of the Ohio River to the shores of Lake Michigan will try to change that perceptoin by sending a tweet containing “#Indiana” The goal is to get #Indiana to trend among the top ten words on twitter.
What types of things will people be writing about? Organizer Amy Stark suggests we write about “something fun about ” #Indiana” or a favorite #Indiana tradition or vacation spot. The idea is to show the global twitter audience how cool Indiana can be.”
In a vibrant conversation on Smaller Indiana others have voiced opinions we should also write about things going on in the business community, about some of the successful new technologies which are emerging here. ( Address Two, Bank Service Inc)
I will be among the bloggers posting comments at 12:30. I will probably share a note about my favorite coffees hop (Lulu’s on 86th) or my husband ( @aballstudio) and his exhibit as part of Modern Perspectives this Friday or maybe a note about something one of my clients will be doing.
What about you? Will you help grow the trend?
