Ken's been experimenting with social media for the past year, helping to coordinate training events, tweet-ups, and the occasional Newark Freeze where 200 people froze on Main Street for five minutes while confused U of D students got on their cell phones to tell their friends something "freaky" was going on. In recent months, Ken has been featured in social media articles from Life Science Leader, The Delaware Business Ledger, The Newark Post, and a few other publications.
In February, Ken helped Delaware Governor Jack Markell get started with Twitter at DelTweet 3.0.
