I am extraordinarily pleased and honoured to be participating in BlogPotomac 2008 this coming June, a social media best practices unconference organized by Geoff Livingston and Debbie Weil. Here’s the official blurb:
Sponsored by Livingston Communications, The Point, Viget Labs, WordBiz, Inc. and The Social Media Club, BlogPotomac seeks to provide a local “un-conference” on best marketing practices for the social media community in DC. Our goal is to provide advanced marketing insights beyond the average social media 101 event.
Which is something I am absolutely all over – being recently very inspired by David Churbuck’s (Lenovo’s social media guru) post lamenting the lack of more Social Media 201 examples.
Here’s the lineup:
Lionel Menchaca, digital media manager and chief blogger, Direct2Dell Frank Gruber, community manager, AOL and author of Somewhat Frank Kami Huyse, Communication Overtones on ethics Author KD Paine on measurement Jeremy Pepper from Pop! PR Jots on strategy
(I’ll be doing a session on integrating social media into your overall marketing/communications plan, and Josh Hallett will co-host with Debbie)
Personally, I’m really looking forward to meeting people I’ve heard a lot about and getting to know others a little better. This should be a great event – the lineup is incredible; I am in some very good company!
There are only 150 seats available, so register now if you’re planning to attend. Any profits from BlogPotomac will be donated to the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
It will be great to have you, Maggie. You are such a rock star!
