About #Bond_age_: the James Bond Social Media Project
#Bond_age_ : The James Bond Social Media Project was a project conceived on and for social media. A few Tweeps and I were discussing our anticipation of the new James Bond movie Skyfall. This conversation catalyzed the review/essay series — one essay for each Bond movie. Curiosity got the better of me. How would my perception of the individual Bond films change when viewed in chronological order? Why had I never considered doing this before? What patterns would emerge in the series that I had not previously noticed? I decided to invite more people along on this journey through 50 years of Bond so I began the weekly live tweet segment of the project. One thing led to another…
Each Wednesday at 9pm ET, the #Bond_age_ crew hosts another James Bond or Bond-related live tweet session. Potential fodder includes any of the Bond films, spy-related movies (IMPOSTORS!) or television shows (#Bond_age_TV). Join us in giving good #Bond_age_.

About Greg McCambley
Greg McCambley has lived his entire life in Ottawa, Canada (with the occasional short trip to California to bask in its Pacificness). He graduated from Carleton University with degrees in History and Psychology. Bitten by the collecting bug as a child, he has spent the vast majority of his life collecting and reading comics, as well as pulp novels and magazines. His knowledge of films and TV is strictly self-taught. His love of James Bond has blossomed into a love of the whole 60s spy craze. His love of MST3K blossomed into a love of livetweeting. Thanks to Jay and The James Bond Social Media Project, his two loves found a place to come together. For that, he’ll always be grateful.
