Snap, Crackle, Pop!

Electricity was in the air at SXSWi! In the words of CC Chapman, "SXSW is a true media conference."

Thankfully, I was able to attend one day of the five-day conference. (Thank you, Connie Reece.) Trust me; I made the most of my limited time. In the morning, we toured the trade show floor. There were not too many WOWS, but we had plenty of opportunities to play Guitar Hero.

The WOWS happened in the sessions/panels, Bloghaus and evening events! SXSW is a powerful conference and all attendees are powerful players.

Monday evening, I attended an event with Federated Media, Dell, along with Bulldog Solutions, The Conversation Group, and Social Media Club Austin, for an evening of “Conversation Starters” at the Iron Cactus. I hung out with Kami Huyse and had a blast finally meeting the people I converse with daily in the virtual world, such as CC Chapman, “Pistachio” Laura Fitton (my soul sis), THE Chris Brogan, and Erin Kotecki Vest. I finally reconnected with fellow Dallas blogger, Jake McKee aka The Community Guy.

It rocked to see so many of my peers and those I greatly respect in the industry. Great minds do not think alike. That is OK. My peeps keep me humble and grounded. Thank you!

ANNOUNCEMENT: It’s official! Next month we will be rekindling the Dallas Fort Worth Social Media Club! Stay tuned for more details on time/location. We are thinking 24 April…

    Wait, I’m THE? : ) Very very nice to be in your orbit for a while. Hope it doesn’t take a year to repeat that.

    It won’t be another year! If not for my company then my future, I need to be more proactive networking face-to-face with social media sphere. Ironic, I love to interact online, but put me in a room and it takes me a while to warm up. Practice.
