My goal in 2008: Meet my friends

I’ve never been a fan of New Year’s Resolutions. Instead I try to constantly evolve, finding that the “big changes” occur over time and typically it takes multiple tries.

However, I have an idea for a fun New Year’s Resolution for ALL of us.

In 2008 I’d like to meet all of my friends/connections on Twitter, Facebook, Mahalo, and LinkedIn.

That’s around 7,000 unique contacts from around the world I’m guessing. It’s clearly an impossible task to meet them all, but could I meet 1,000 of them? 2,000? Half?

What wold be the best way to do this? Dinners? Meetups? Dim Sum? Parties? Conferences? A 20 city tour?!?

How would you keep track?!

Thoughts?!?!

Here are the raw stats:
Twitter: 5,824
LinkedIn: 2,803
Mahalo: 495
Facebook: 3,283
