Weekend read: My weekly share on Twitter

If you feel like you've been dancing as fast as you can, the weekend should mean a slowdown's ahead--at least, I hope so. This week has been fast and furious for me, and nowhere more than Twitter, where I'm @dontgetcaught. Here are the week's finds and good reads that I shared there:

This week, I want to devote some space to three great conferences coming up in October. There's another excellent lineup at October's Web 2.0 Expo in New York City, and discount codes for your registration here. At the HighEdWeb conference in Austin, check out this session on reinventing your university news site. And today's the last day to get the early registration discount for the Science Writers 2011 conference in Arizona. I'll be at the latter--let me know if I'll see you there.

Here's an item I favorited on Twitter that you should pass around the office: A new Tumblr blog by one of Mashable's editors, called "Everyone's Excited in Press Releases," featuring clips from release in which the quoted individual says, well, how excited his is about whatever. Try not to give him any more new material, willya? Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
