Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand – worst descriptions #2

This is simply – in a word naff!

In a few weeks time the small rural town of Cambridge, a wealthy English look-alike village, hub of the New Zealand equine industry and home to the national rowing team, will welcome tens of thousands of visitors for the 2010 World Rowing Championships.

The normally quiet, tree-lined streets have been adorned with bunting, local parks and public gardens groomed, shops well stocked and extra staff hired as the town prepares to become home, business and support centre, and party central to hoards of competitors, supporters and spectators.

Stroke: sits at the front and looks pretty Bow: has an amazing talent for finding floating trees, banks, other boats, etc

I did a search interested to see what the take up of Twitter is among this cohort of people; um – not great. Maadi the place in Egypt is mentioned numerous times – most probably by an age group a decade or half a decade older. Then I am only using the one word search; ‘Maadi’. Could also be that phone to phone texting is so ubiquitous here that Twittering is of little interest. That and it’s public nature and ease of use or not.

Now I have found: Twitter Alerts. Well a Twitter alert service called TweetBeeps.
