    Wonderful idea. Really wish it had facebook support for all of us non-micro-bloggers though.

      Good news for you, then! We’re working on getting a Facebook presence currently, so the next giveaway might include just that!

      (I must, say, though, Twitter is pretty awesome. You should think about joining in the tweeting fun. :) )

    Great Stuff! I already have that book, and I’m not into social networking at all, but when someone asks me, I’ll link them to your site anyway :D

    This book is great so if you don’t have it yet you should very much enter! I’ve had my copy for like 5 years so I don’t need it but someone is very lucky to get it for free because its very helpful.

    Some of us don’t have Twitter accounts. We’re too busy animating and working to waste time with that. Just saying…

      Well the way I see it is animation is a very social career. Generally you work with others, or at the very least SHOW others what you create. As such I see Twitter as an extension of work. It allows for sharing easily and quickly, plus you never know what great things you can learn from other animators you might never interact with otherwise!

      Just a thought. :)
