Cisco Live 2013 Twitter List


Cisco Live is coming to the East Coast this year!  It has been five years since Cisco descended on the sunny town of Orlando, FL.  This year, Cisco will be bringing the nerd roadshow that is Cisco Live to the Orlando Convention Center.  One of the best things about Cisco Live is the networking opportunities that it presents to network rock stars.  Something that is commonly heard from people is that they get to meet some of the most interesting folks while attending.  A few have even said the people are the best reason to attend!

The Cisco Live Twitter List has been going strong for the last few years.  This list exists for all the networkers using Twitter that would like to see who else is attending.  Twitter is not only a great way to keep in touch outside of Cisco Live, but it serves a great function during the event.  By following people that are attending, you can use Twitter to coordinate events, catch up after hours, and even use direct messages (DMs) to communicate when the local cellular network inevitably fails due to the influx of 20,000 extra people.  Having a bird’s eye view of the attendees is a great way to see interest.  Last year, the list had over 100 members.  I’m hoping for at least 150 in 2013.

This year, the list is all about the people.  I know that there are a great many companies that want to announce their participation in Cisco Live.  However, this is about connecting with an actual living, breathing human being.  If you want to have you name put on the list I’ll be more than happy to do it.  I can even tag you company’s Twitter handle in the notes field, especially if you are the flesh and blood human behind it.  I will try to refrain from just putting a corporate handle in, though.  I want this to be focused on the human part of networking.

Here’s the list so far:

If you’d like to have your name added to the list, please feel free to email me here:

I’ll be happy to add you in.  You can also send me a message on Twitter, either a direct message or a quick mention.  All I really need is your Name, Twitter handle, and whatever you’d like to say about yourself in the short notes field.  I’ll only publish the information you want out there.  Some choose to list their CCIE number, others list their other official Twitter handles.  Just remember it’s a note field, not a biography.  If you’d like to be removed from the list, I can do that as well.  I only plan on listing people that ask to be listed, so don’t be shy!

In addition, due to popular demand, I’ve added a Twitter list of the Twitter list.  Metareferential humor never gets old to me.  If you want to have easy access to this list from your favorite Twitter client, you can go to to see everyone above.  I’ll keep both lists updated as more people join.

Jeff and I look forward to seeing all of you in Orlando for Cisco Live 2013.
