I don’t hate on tech, but it is nice to see 2.0 used for something new. My last post asked if anyone played tennis in the area. I put the post up on Twitter, and Corey Pavletich (@tronovision), Cesar Torres (@cesart), Kristine Gloria (@gloriakt) and some others expressed interest. Corey even booked a court at Austin High today. So basically, a tennis meetup was organized without me even having to do anything. How cool is that?
So as you may have noticed from some of my previous posts, I want social media to accommodate my life instead of the other way around. The world is too completely amazing to pass up just sitting behind a computer getting wrapped up in the blogo/twittosphere.
One of my real world hobbies is tennis. I played for a year on the University of Texas team and taught it for a year when I graduated. I haven’t played competitively in six years though and really miss playing. The United States Tennis Association will not let me play leagues though because I can’t play down a level as this would not be fair, but the level I play at does not have enough players to actually justify a league. It’s a Catch 22 and a total bummer.
Inspired by David J. Neff’s move to sell his house social media style, I decided to upload this video of me and Cole Crawford to Facebook in search of other players who may be in the same situation. It’s just a couple of good points from a basic game to 11. Can you or someone you know give me a run for my money? I haven’t been hitting much at all in years, so I’d appreciate some help. Leave a comment if you have any ideas.
