When Twitter Comes to Life- or ABC Kids Expo 2011

The best part of ABC Kids Expo, the largest Juvenile Products Convention in the US- is not seeing all of the new products.  For me, the highlight of ABC Kids Expo is meeting the faces behind the name.  Unless you were there or have been before it is impossible to grasp the enormity that is […]
