I have been using different social media sites for a few years now. It took me a while to get into it because I considered it a big waste of time, I was wrong.

Social media sites are nothing but a way to communicate what we all have to say, to share, it can be a short message, a blog post, a picture, a new product, a rant, etc.

It is all about sharing information with people we know and people who we wouldn’t be able to reach otherwise, I love it! It is also a great way to keep up to date with the topics that are of interest to you. For example, as a software developer I follow (using Twitter) other software developers I trust and admire to see what they are up to, etc… I also follow the Twitter accounts of certain companies because I am interested in their products and services, and interestingly enough I have found it a lot easier to communicate with these companies via Twitter when I have a question, a praise or a complain.

I am happy to announce a new service of On Techies. A job board. There are many tech job openings in the city of Austin and other cities around the world; On Techies wants to help by exposing great techie jobs to all geeks in Austin and around the country.

This job board is going to include just a limited list of tech jobs which will be exposed to people who read this blog, that are part of our LinkedIn group and also followers of our twitter accounts @ontechies and @jobsfortechies.

This is a guest post by the folks at Software Advice, They’ve researched and reviewed hundreds of software products, so you don’t have to, you can contact them at http://www.softwareadvice.com, check out their blog as well for great articles.

This is a pretty funny post they did and we are posting it here with their permission. Basically, this is a list of the stereotypical characters that flock to SXSW each year – including the dirty hippy, the hipster, and other classics…

As a local Austin company, we have a love/hate relationship with South by Southwest (SXSW). We love the shows and the action, but parking sure is a drag right now. More than anything, we’re enthralled by all the visitors to our small, Texas town. As a diversion from our day jobs, we thought we’d sketch out some of the archetypical characters we’ve been seeing around town during the festival.

“We’re Twitter meets Zynga with an API that transforms the social graph.”

He’s an alpha male in a beta body, rockin’ the hoodie and flip flops – just like Zuck. SXSW Interactive attracts a swarm of these php-smokin’, eager beavers. You’ll find him at “Business Model 101: How To Actually Make Money?,” but he wishes he was at the Android Developer Meetup. You’ll often find the PR Chick and the Venture Capitalist in hot pursuit – a stunning reversal of the social order that was in place during college, last year. At least one of these aspiring entrepreneurs will join the digital elite within a year. And OMG, you totally ordered a Bulleit on the Rocks next to him at the Mashable party.

The second Co-Founders Meetup happened this past Thursday, February, 17 and it was a good turn over; 65 people showed up forming a good crowd of entrepreneurs and techies. We had 9 people pitch their startups, and looking for everything from developers, designers, marketing and sales people.

The goal of this meetup is to get the techies and the business types in one room and let them talk to each other. Yes, when we all get along and hang out together, great things happen!
