  1. Yeah!!!! I'm the first commenter. Thought the meeting tonight was very good and interesting (ok, now spoken like Tiffany - way super-awesomely engaging and intratastic!) Seriously, I enjoyed the topic, thought you had great panelists that both knew their material, but also all had different perspectives and ways of using social media, and enjoyed the fact you were streaming it online (walkin the walk).

    Only suggestion- move the start of the "content" earlier (i.e., like 6:30) b/c we busy folks got other places to go, people to see (those not on twitter or fb or britekite... ya know, "fleshy" people!)

    Looking forward to the next one (oh, I also like the idea of 3 "real" sessions and then a general meet n greet.

    (and, um, how are you going to pick the winner if you don't have a public blogger profile! @jerlenaz

  2. The meeting was very informative. I especially like the view of social media from the perspective of a reporter. Awesome how she was able to get a pic for a story she was working on by using Twitter. I also was impressed with how she noticed how people were using Twitter to avoid long traffic lines during Gustav's evacuation.
    I think that these "educational" type meetings are great. I wouldn't want every meeting to be that way but maybe every third meeting.
