I have “met” Thomas online – he works at Omidyar and we have a lot in common in our work. We’ve spoken once on the phone because Thomas replied to a twitter that I was looking for people interested in thinking about how an non profit might use FaceBook. Through those interactions, I found out Thomas was also coming to the GK3 meetings here in Kuala Lumpur. We have been exchanging tweets since we arrived. This afternoon I saw a tweet that he was stepping out to the Central Market. I asked if I could go so we ended up going with another colleague of Thomas’. I bought sarongs and a beautiful shirt.
