Join Me at Social Media Club LA on Wednesday, November 5th

Where is the intersection of politics and social media, how has it affected this election and how will it affect future contests? Come join us on Wednesday, November 5th at Mahalo HQ in Santa Monica, CA. I will be speaking on a panel with a lot of smart people to discuss these (and I’m sure other) topics.

For more information, click here. If you don’t yet belong to SMC LA and you are in the LA area, you should. If not in the LA area, go to Social Media Club and find the group in your neighborhood. Thanks to Jackie Peters and Brooks Bayne for inviting me to participate.

And for those who are wondering - this is not a political debate. Far from it (I truly hope!) This is about the technology, the candidates, the process and the people. Social media, the ability for everyone to get near instant information, the ability for everyone to get near instant feedback, will play a massive role in future elections. This panel will discuss how, and how not, to best engage. What the potential results can be, what the potential drawbacks can be, and how we minimize the drawbacks.

At least, those are some of my topics. Come by on Wednesday night and join the group. I look forward to seeing you there.
