Choosing my new avatar! Get your vote on!

Well kids…I’m joining the others that have had @tysoncrosbie shoot new head shots of them for their avatar image across the intertubes.  Wait…shoot…head shot…are we playing COD4??? KA-BLAM BITCHES!!!!

Any who…@tysoncrosbie of Tyson Crosbie Photography in Phoenix, AZ did the shoot about a week ago.  He asks you 3 words to describe what you want your avatar to represent…I chose “funny”, “strong”, and “thinker”.  What he then does is he goes clickity click with his camera from various different angles, takes your money, and you go on your merry way until he chooses 15 of the photos that best represents your words at his discretion, then he posts them on Flickr and has the community comment on the images to vote on the best one!

Refresh Phoenix – April 2008

We had our monthly Refresh Phoenix meeting on Tuesday night this week. I’ve only been to 1 other meeting (Feb 2008), but I’ve been conversing with a lot of the attendees for a while now through various social networking channels (mostly Twitter). This time, I told myself that I needed to talk to more people – and I did! I finally met some of my online buddies face to face and shared a few laughs. The topic for the April meet-up was a review from various SXSW attendees – who all agreed that it’s not only the best conference to attend every year if you are a web n3rd, but the networking aspect of it all is extremely valuable!

If you are in the web development industry – design, dev, photography, etc – it is a very good idea for you to attend these monthly refresh meetings, because like SXSW, the networking aspect within your local community is probably your most valuable resource!

If you aren’t in Phoenix, you can check Refreshing Cities to find out where the closest meet-up is to you – or start your own if there aren’t any available!
