How many people in Utah use twitter?

December 16, 2010


Last week the Pew Internet and American Life Project reported that 8% of American adults who use the internet also use twitter. For many, this number was much higher than expected.

What the #Aggielife? An analysis of Aggies on Twitter

September 29, 2011

Concentration of Utah Twitter users

I'm moving to New York (but stopping in Utah first!)

April 16, 2011


a personal rambling by @brysonwhite. While I’ve tried to keep my posts as much about you (and Utah) and as little about me as possible, today I can’t resist. Yesterday, my wife (@misskristywhite) and I made a pretty big decision. We will be moving to New York City this fall while she attends graduate school […]

My favorite Utah tech/social media blogs

March 26, 2011


I like local stuff, even when it comes to technology. Sure, I still read Mashable and Tech Crunch, but I’m just as interested in what’s happening along the Wasatch Front (don’t ask me why. I have no idea). Here are a few Utah social media, tech, marketing and digital communications blogs I read to stay […]

Since I wasn’t actually able to attend the speech by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg at BYU today, I thought I’d compile a list of some of the best articles about the speech. Fortunately, I was able to follow along using the hashtag #ZuckUT and there were a few kind souls who streamed the event from […]
