Via @ExaminerCom: @DowntownGarden’s “What’s up With Social Media” Series: Session Four: Open Agenda, thanks to @PBPost

27 Jan

[FROM OUR EXAMINER ARTICLE…]

….. As some of you know, our Media Mentoring Societies are meant to be “Locally Grown” yet to have a Global Twist; last night’s proceedings at Downtown at the Gardens proved precisely that, as we had a Facebook acquaintance/friend follow us from Madrid… here’s the exchange:

“Francisco Jose Palacio Junior [TWEETED FROM @USTREAM BROADCAST MONITOR/CONTROL PANEL]

“Live from @DowntownGardens: A whole CROWD came tonight! Thanks @PBPost (Broadcasting live at http://ustre.am/bngA)

Yesterday at 7:04pm via Ustream.TV Custom: loading… ·

[A FRIEND IN MADRID WATCHED – AND COMMENTED!]

@MMSocieties: 2010 01 19 Session: Part One: Overview and Topic Choosing

“Add me to the 4 viewers!

BTW, still waiting on a good explanation about the difference between twitter and facebook 😛

Maybe due to my lack of attention when I watched this (from office)

Nice job by the way, I enjoyed it :)”

[SO I COMMENTED BACK]

“Whoa!… YOU were watching US? From Madrid!???

[JAW DROPS!]

Really? COOOL!!!!… See More

[DONS TWEED JACKET – WITH ELBOW PATCHES – AND CORDUROYS… PROFESSORIAL LOOK!]

Did you refer to the slides, BTW?

[CLEARS THROAT]

They’re an INTEGRAL part of what we do… ’em slides allow one to dig deeper into the subject…

Which ones?

[GRINS]

The ones on Meetup.Com!

http://MediaMentoring.NET

Go ahead! RSVP and make US go Global!

Seriously… we post EVERYTHING there first… UStream is meant to keep us ‘live’ on the web, but there’s also a cleaner (meaning, on a tripod!) video I shoot that gets loaded to Vimeo; usually also a podcast (yeah, we have been remiss, but you may load the Vimeo vids to your iPod/iPhone, right?)

… once you’ve dug through those, we talk!

(we’ve done FOUR sessions so far, covering different aspects of this Brobdingnagian Pachiderm we dare call “Social Media” … IMHO? I prefer Web 2.0 or 2.9, as in the end, it’s just the evolution of the same old tools… right?)

Anyways, U JUST MADE MY DAY, AMIGO!!! GRACIAS!!!

Paco

P.S:

Also, peek at our new e-Newsletter for more… add yourself to the mailing list and/or shoot me an email so I can send you the future ones (we hope to have enough content for a Weekly)

– Socially Yours Premiere Issue -Web Version

Saludos!”
… Which in the end, proves the adage “Act Locally, Think Globally” that’s somehow embedded into many of the interactions we conduct on these ‘Social Media’ forums; as mentioned on the video, sometimes it’s more a matter of the QUALITY of the interactions, the fact that people actually care to look at your content, than the actual AMOUNT of people listed on one’s statistics….

Which videos, you may ask? these!

Session Four at Downtown at The Gardens: Open Agenda, Topics covered across the entire spectrum of Social/New Media issues…

One… via Vimeo

Two…via Vimeo (required for LONG videos!)

And the rest, via @UStream (Bookmark us as we’d be stashing our live broadcasts there EVERY Tuesday until the end of February, at least at this location!)

#InCaseYouMissedIt: What #SoFresh #SoCruise was ALL about… (#FaceBooster on #BlogSpot and #PhotoShelter)

Social Fresh Cruise – Sessions Announcement

Our goal is for the Conference Sessions to be Fresh, Forward-Thinking, and Interactive. We want the sessions to spark ideas and conversation throughout the cruise whether that be at dinner, by the pool, at the cocktail parties, at the blackjack tables, etc.. After the cruise, the #SoCruise attendees will have a distinct advantage over those who did not attend thanks to a stronger network, new ideas, and rejuvenation from a 4-day Cruise Vacation!

Anchors Aweigh!

Anchors Aweigh!

Four 45 minute sessions are set. We are excited to announce that Chris Brogan will do a Reverse Q&A, Greg Cangialosi will be presenting the Future Interconnectivity of Email & Social Media, Amber Naslund Building ‘Real’ Communities, Jason Keath the future Democratization of specific Industries facilitated by Social Media (a similar panel Jason is pitching for SXSW made it to #8 on the Hot List). The subject matter on these may change slightly as we get closer to the Cruise!

To insure that the content is valuable and relevant to everyone sailing on the Social Fresh Cruise, attendees will pitch Session ideas, Q&As, Panels, interviews, etc. for the remaining 4 sessions. We are going to use IdeaScale to facilitate the process. Many attendees have inquired about the opportunity to speak on the Cruise, this is your chance to speak or suggest a topic. So get your pitches ready and we’ll start the process soon. Follow @SoCruise on twitter for the announcement with link to start making your session pitches.
