#FollowFriday – @Cmaaarrr: Infectious Diseases physician, gamer, podcast contributor, and libation enthusiast

by Scott Roche June 17, 2011 Follow Friday

As a podcaster and a writer I follow quite a few people in those arenas. As a result, my Follow Friday recommendations tend to trend heavily in those directions. Today will be different. My recommendation for this week is John Cmar. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting John at past Balticons and he is a […]


#FollowFriday – @WootShirt – Your daily dose of unique, interesting, and just bizzare t-shirts.

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor June 10, 2011 Follow Friday

Normally, I wouldn’t recommend following a Twitter account that only exists as a marketing ploy. To make me change this policy, you’ve really got to be offering something out of the ordinary that makes it worth the trouble. I have to say, @WootShirt does that in spades.


#FollowFriday – @ChuckWendig: Freelance Penmonkey. Screenwriter. Novelist. Game designer.

by Scott Roche June 3, 2011 Follow Friday

I always feel a bit funny recommending a “famous” persona to my fellow tweeters. I figure, “Hey, if I’m following them and they have a bunch of followers then they must be following them too.” I don’t want this guy to be overlooked though. I’ve been following Chuck for a while now and reading his […]


#FollowFriday – @Balticon: The official Twitter stream of the Balticon convention!

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor May 27, 2011 Follow Friday

For a lot of my Twitter stream, this weekend will find people either going completely silent… or tweeting like the Rapture has been post-dated and someone is coming to collect! This is because, like myself, they will be at Balticon, a regional Science Fiction/Fantasy Convention held every year on Memorial Day Weekend by the Baltimore […]


#FollowFriday – @JohnAnealio: Sci-Fi Songwriter, Wired.com’s GeekDad Guitar Teacher, Co-Host of The Functional Nerds Podcast.

by Scott Roche May 20, 2011 Follow Friday

We’ve sung the praises of folks that we’ve met at Balticon here before and this Friday will be no different. I had the pleasure of meeting @JohnAnealio last year at the live I Should Be Writing where he sang “George RR Martin is Not Your Bitch” and I instantly fell in like. His singing and […]


#FollowFriday – @MadPoet: Writer, Editor, Podcaster, Attorney, Captain of Flying Island Press, Herder of Cats

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor May 13, 2011 Follow Friday

Over the past year (and more) I have recommended quite a number of creative people on Twitter. Today, I’m going to recommend someone who takes that a step farther. This is a gentleman who goes the extra mile in creative endeavors by leading them. Creative people can be a difficult lot. This is natural, as […]


#FollowFriday – @JRMurdock: Reader, YA writer, computer programmer.

by Scott Roche May 6, 2011 Follow Friday

Being a writer, I follow a lot of writers on Twitter. But, since Twitter is kind of a geeky thing, most of the writers I follow are also tech savvy geeks. J.R. is no exception. I first ran into him online when I started listening to V & A Shipping, a delicious mashup of Star […]


#FollowFriday – @TeeMonster: Actor, Author, Boom Wrangler, The First Podcast Novelist, Uber Nemesis, Twitter Evangelist, and Steampunk Adventurer

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor April 29, 2011 Follow Friday

This one has been a long time coming. And I’ll admit, I’ve been saving this one for a special occasion. This week, something finally fit the bill. This isn’t the first time I’ve written about Tee Morris. It’s not even the first time I’ve written about him on the Nifty Tech Blog. In the first […]


#FollowFriday – @JRDSkinner: Writer, Adventurer, Man of Science.

by Scott Roche April 22, 2011 Follow Friday

Today, I bring you one @JRDSkinner. I don’t know much about JRD as a person. I do know that he has a podcast called Flash Pulp that’s been running for over one hundred and fifty episodes and that takes a special kind of crazy. According to him, it’s three to ten minute tales full of […]


#FollowFriday – @GuestfordJunkie: Blogger, Junkie, and @LighterMom

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor April 15, 2011 Follow Friday

This week’s FollowFriday is a very special one for me. Naturally, they’re all special, or they wouldn’t get mentioned. But this week’s pick isn’t just someone who inspires me, she is also someone whom I am proud to say that I have inspired. Let me introduce you to Rachel, also known as @GuestfordJunkie, a lovely […]
