South Sound Technology Conference 2007



The Blogging Boom:
How News, Private Enterprise, Parenting and Civic Action have Changed Through Online Journaling.

Please save the date to join us on Thursday, November 29th, 9:00am to 1:00pm (8:30am registration) in the Carwein Auditorium of the Keystone Building on the University of Tacoma campus, for a conference on how blogging is changing the way we communicate, socialize and take action.

After the event we hope to organize several "birds of a feather" break out groups to head out to lunch and carry on further with the conversations.

Speakers and panelists will explore who is doing blogging, how it's being done and how you can participate. Come join the conversation on how blogging is transforming the exchange of information, and the influence on journalism, business, civic leadership and the public at large.

Many members of the local South Sound blogging community will be there and I hope you will be as well.

More information to follow as the program firms up.

hi professor! I just found an online community we never talked about (or at least I don't think we did) in class! Its called harry potter and the muggle alliance... -_- But its an activist group created and maintained online! Here's a quote from the article "In the spring of 2005, I founded the Harry Potter Alliance, an international organization that uses online social networks" Anyway I wrote and put links on my blog if you want to know more...

Hi Andrew, very timely topic, I've been looking at setting up a blog for Tacoma Goodwill's e-commerce customers to share some of their thoughts. Is there a need to register or a cost to attend?

Enjoyed your comments today in the Tribune...I've indeed researched prospective employees online for my own company, but I don't believe it's a proceedure we use at Tacoma Goodwill.

One of these days we need to catchup on that long overdue lunch...
