small world connections, you don’t always need social media

so yesterday I flew from San Francisco to New York. Getting off the plane last night, I headed to baggage and then out into the terminal. Since it was late, I’d reserved a car; the fellow was there with a sign for me.

“Hi.” I went over.
Tim O’Reilly says hello,” he replied
“Huh?” I was confused. Did this guy just drive Tim O’Reilly?
“A man got off the plane, saw my sign, came over and said “Is that Susan Mernit? Tel hr Tim O’Reilly says hi.'”

“Oh!” I started laughing, and as we walked to his car, I just thought, Hey, you don’t always need twitter.
