So, what's a "tummel?"
Andy Carvin @acarvin
And for those of you wondering what the hell "tummel" means, it's a Yiddish word for connecting people and getting them to talk, interact.
Andy Carvin @acarvin
At Jewish weddings back in the day, they'd sometimes hire a "tummler" whose job it was to help break the ice and get people interacting.

says @acarvin - the key to being a true "of the web person" is to be vulnerable which leads to collective inquiry &collaboration #tummel

says @acarvin "I was doing an hour a day during the Tunisian uprising, but by Egypt I was up to 16 hours a day, with more sources" #tummel

says @acarvin setting up a twitter account after the news breaks isn't how to do it; having existing connections helps. #tummel

Will ask @MrSnark if @acarvin gets a mcarthur grant what would he do with the money #tummel
debs @debs
says @acarvin "I got answers because I knew how to ask the right questions and knew there were people who could help me #tummel
Kevin Marks @kevinmarks
says @acarvin: I wouldn't say I'm trying to help the people in the revolutions directly, I am trying to help everyone bear witness #tummel
