Liz Strauss made Creative Networking the topic of Open Mic Night this week. Here are a few of my better contributions to the discussion.
Getting answers on Twitter, Plurk, etc., when you ask questions:

2. Persist. Keep asking. Ask again later. Rephrase the question.
3. Share your results, and talk about it.
