Tweeting and texting into the future...


SMCCHS, Wachovia Auditorium, Charleston, Charleston, S.C.

I attended the Social Media Club Charleston panel discussion this evening at the college of Charleston's Wachovia Auditorium where we were promised that there were no "stupid questions" about twitter, facebook, friendfeed etc. My impression was that most of the attendees were business people trying to promote their products and talents.

Turns out I am old fashioned and quaint simply being a blogger. I am vintage social media.

It's all very exciting and things are changing so fast it's hard to keep up. I'm not too worried. I work in a "people" job and my day to day life is overwhelmingly social. It's so darned social I am very protective of my personal time. Other than blogging and visiting yours, I have an ancient cell phone that I forget to carry, I don't turn on my answering machine at home and rarely announce what I am doing until after I've done it.
Description: Social Media Club brings together journalists, publishers, communications professionals, artists, amateur media creators, citizen journalists, teachers, students, tool makers, and other interested collaborators. Essentially the people who create and consume media who have an interest in seeing the ‘media industry’ evolve for everyone’s benefit.
Lucky for us, these clever people on our panel (below) are keeping up with the trends and willing to share their expertise with all of us. Keep an eye on their web site or Facebook fan site for future meetings. I might see you there, or I might not. I won't tweeting tell you.
