Infoporn: Twitter by the Numbers

As we mentioned earlier, we think that the best way to run a social media campaign is to know your audience.

Aside from the fact that there are many endearing habits of a geeky spouse, which you can read about on Wired’s Geek Dad, my favorite thing about geekdom is that geeks are very passionate about being geeks.

She forgot to add that geeks also understand the value of going viral, even if it’s concerning nothing more than a wedding invitation.

What’s in a Card?

Bits and bytes. Oh, and a fun game too. The bride and groom custom-made an 8-bit Mario/Donkey Kong-themed video game which must be won to obtain the necessary wedding info. The two characters you can play with: Darina or Niko, who also happen to be bride and groom.

And The Nobel Peace Prize Goes to…

She really did look her best, didn't she?

Upon hearing her name, the Internet, dressed up in her best attire of a colorful table-based website, and with a flock of blue Twitter birds flying over head, seemed to be really surprised.
