And then I was on the front page of the New York Times fashion section…

Several months ago I was interviewed by Ashley Parker for a piece in the New York Times on hashtags. The piece is live and though it may not provide Twitterers with much new information, it does put the concept and practice in front of a much larger audience.

Kris Cheng (who just graduated from Stanford) shot the photo at Google a couple weeks ago with a couple friends (the hand in the photo belongs to a Miss Fontaine Foxworth).

Oh, and for full measure, Ashley just launched her new column “#trendingNYC” today.
