Here are this week's Twitter #FollowFriday Professional Land Surveyor Recommendations:
@wkfd - WKFD is the Twitter account for the Kung Fu Drafter blog. They are drafters and geeks trying to share information with people with similar interests. I highly recommend visiting The Kung Fu Drafter blog, as it is a fun site and full of information too! If you get a chance read the CAD+: AutoCAD Exchange Gets a Facelift, You Can Help Autodesk ... blog post.
@Eagle_Point -Eagle Point has been providing the AEC and Geospatial markets with technical solutions and services for over 25 years (disclosure: Eagle Point advertises on this site). For AEC, they offer desktop solutions that run on AutoCAD and AutoCAD Civil 3D, including solutions for surveying, like their Surveyor' Companion for Civil 3D and other AEC and Geospatial markets with technical solutions.
@ryanpconnolly - Ryan is a civil engineering student, CAD user, and CAD learner (aren't we all though). He occasionally refers to me as "mr. colburn", which makes me laugh. Hard worker, loves Fridays, fan of double headers in the rain, and my connection, through his tweets, to keep up to date with the World Cup.
@landsurveyorsU - Twitter account for the great people from Land Surveyors United. PLS Network where Professional Land Surveyors Change the Industry through discussion and media. Network with other surveyors globally in any language!
@iPinda - Edwards Twitter bio says "CAD specialist, AutoCAD trainer and Civil 3D addict" and if you visit his Civil 3D Peanuts blog, you'll discover that he's also a part-time freelance AutoCAD trainer and full time CAD application administrator for an international AEC company. If you get a chance, read his When to use the Layer & Spatial Index blog post, very interesting.

@Brent_Jones - Global Marketing Manager Survey/Cadastre/Engineering at ESRI, High Accuracy GIS, Land Administration, GPS, Civil Engineering, Cadastre. This week Brent recommended this fantastic GIS interview with Jack Dangermond on internet evolution »»http://bit.ly/aOc2Ag
@CADRelations - CAD Relations website is an "Engineers Online Portal" for CAD, Engineering, Architecture, Community, Motorsports and Design, including Autodesk and Bentley software, which they proudly shout from the rafters "that is what we love and live for!!" I love the passion that they bring to the industry. Check out their Applications for Autodesk solutions post.
@C3D_RickGraham - Rick's Twitter Bio is sweet and right to the point - "Civil 3D fanatic. MacBook Pro user too". This week I came to learn that Rick, in addition to being a Civil 3D fanatic (really, who isn't?) is also a fan of that ancient angling method, Fly Fishing. This impresses me, as I have a hard time catching fish, never mind flies! If your fishing trips do take you to my neck of the woods, I'll buy you breakfast, Rick.
@LivingRheum - I've saved the best for last, again, - My wife Jo-Ann. I know I've said it before, but it's true, so here it is again: Jo-Ann is a dedicated mother to our three boys, loyal and supportive wife to me, long-suffering surveyor's wife, business partner, wellness blogger about Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lyme Disease, compassionate, smart as a tack, and willing to set me straight when need be. Jo-Ann, without a doubt, is the reason I am here today and is the "why" and the "how" I've become the man that I am. She writes a wonderful blog called LivingRheum, which you should visit. Read her Rheumatoid Arthritis: First Visit With The Rheumatologist post.
That's a wrap!
So there you go, this weeks Twitter Follow Friday Professional Land Surveyor recommendations. Feel free to follow me on Twitter, I'm @EricColburn. Have a great weekend (for some a nice long Memorial Day weekend) and here's to seeing you on the web!
