  1. Thanks so much for including Synthesio, Jeremiah 🙂
    I've been reading your blog for a while now and have always appreciated that you keep people up to date on what everyone is doing in social media as well as help promote others.
    It's the part of the social web (the spirit of helping and giving) that I like the most, I think 🙂
