i’m bunkering down and climbing the social media learning curve right now.
after 10 months of non-stop travel, 4 conferences, and multiple 2009 planning meetings i’ve finally landed in NYC right before the turkey holiday, to close out the year on the East Coast with family.
and between now and the start of 2009 my job – literally- is to master the social web (to whatever extent i can) and help TechWeb more firmly integrate the tools and technologies of Web 2.0 into their community efforts.
we talk the talk and now we walk the walk.
working with a kick-ass and seasoned events team i’ll help build out community experience for our shows.
what does that mean?
well, we’re experimenting with more social tools through proprietary systems and community partnerships, to help share more content – robust content as Tim O’Reilly likes to say – around and for the Web 2.0 Expo, Web 2.0 Summit and Enterprise 2.0 conferences.
and as we close out the year, i’ll follow up on the Expo blog with roundups of our 2008 events and details for Web 2.0 Expo San Francisco, as promised.
i’m a true case study that anyone can learn the web. and going forward i’ll share some of my learnings and experiences, strategies and ideas…
the TechWeb 2.0 team is evolving and it’s going to be a really fun, and occasionally bumpy, ride making it happen. time to enjoy the journey.
