I'm sitting at the New Media Nouveaux conference in Tyson's Corner, VA - ready to learn more about the crazy world of blogging and new media culture. The conference is sponsored by Success In the City, founded by Cynthia De Lorenzi - an influential networking organization geared to C-level executive women.
Up as our opening and closing keynoters, we have Geoff Livingston, from the Buzz Bin whom The Washington Post called a blogging "guru." Later this afternoon we'll hear from blogger extraordinaire Toby Bloomberg from the Diva's Marketing Blog - ranked in the top 2,000 blogs in the world by Technorati.
I'll be moderating a "Specialists" panel later this afternoon on specific techniques, tips and tools on using blogs, wikis, social networking, social bookmarking, vlogs and podcasts. Jen Sterling will be leading the "Businesses" panel discussing why social media is important. (The picture is of myself and Jen) And Jody Roth will be moderating the "Futurists" panel to explore what's coming next and how we can keep ahead of the rapidly moving social media curve.
We'll also be having a working lunch where each table will discuss various topics of new media and participants will share their ideas and lessons learned.
It's sure to be a fun-filled day. Stay tuned for more.
