I drove from BlogSavannah to Atlanta to attend the kick-off meeting of Social Media Club Atlanta this evening (event details here). Looking over the RSVP list there are plenty of old friends and a few new ones.
Social Media Club was founded by Chris Heuer, Howard Greenstein and Kristie Wells:

…for the purpose of sharing best practices, establishing ethics and standards, and promoting media literacy around the emerging area of Social Media. This is the beginning of a global conversation about building an organization and a community where the many diverse groups of people who care about social media can come together to discover, connect, share, and learn.

Chris is a good friend who spoke for me at BlogOrlando last year…great guy with a ton of knowledge. However, tonight’s session will be led by Howard (equally knowledgeable) since Chris is on the road elsewhere. It should be a fun event.
The kick-off is being held in conjunction with the Social Media 2007 conference in Atlanta. I debated about registering, but decided against it. I think I get more out free events like BlogSavannah and Social Media Club than a paid event like SM2007. With that said though….read the next post.

  1. Looking forward to meeting you tonite!

  2. Regarding the Social Media 2007 conference, why don’t you go and see if they’ll let you in? After all, you did inquire earlier about attending at a reduced rate, but said that unfortunately no one got back to you. Maybe they’ll make up for that now?

    Just a quick note to say what a great time it was at blogsavannah, meeting you and dining at Chabella with Amber, Rusty, Angel and the others.
    BTW, I really dig those Flikr shots of Savannah!
