Online acknowledgements for my PhD Thesis (of people I follow on Twitter).
September 6, 2011
On my previous post I included appendix VI of my PhD thesis. This was about how twitter and blogging in general has helped me on my research process. There were no names, here it is a list of people who are on twitter that I’m thankful to them (probably some I have forgotten). A few of them don’t really use of twitter, but they have an account, and others I would not know them and quoted them if they would have not used twitter, so this is a very informal way to say thanks, but at least I woud like to keep a record of it.
They are not necessarily in order of importance.
People I have referenced (and I never met):
People I have personally met and have positively influenced me in my thesis
@RecessionCone (Bay Area)
@dellarucker (Cincinnati, OH)
@prodigis (California) the guy who influenced me to go to Berkeley
@condedelamaza (San Sebastian / Donosti) the guy who influenced me to get into twitter
@malenel the girl (now Prof.) who influenced me to blog
People who I never met personally, follow on twitter, quite positively influenced me for my thesis, AND have provided important sources of knowledge in my thesis.
@euyarra (Manchester) A friend I have never met
@manufernandez (Bilbao) we wish we meet
@ben_spigel (Toronto) we have met, but we don’t remember
Twitter accounts I follow and I never met, but also influenced my thesis.
