SXSWi: Connecting Community Managers

Do you work as community manager? Fancy meeting a few others who work on the front line representing their company?

After meeting a few other company bloggers, customer care people and other community folks at South by SouthWest this week, we thought we’d arrange a little informal gathering before the week ends. It’ll give community managers who work for companies, big and small, a chance to meet others who play that role.

Join us (Ros Hodgekiss, Kelly Rusk and myself) on Tuesday 16th March at 3:30pm at Iron Cactus on 6th Street for a drink and a chat.

Hope you’ll join us there!

[Note: It’s TUESDAY, not Monday as I’ve stupidly been tweeting all afternoon!]

South by SouthWest Interactive: Take 3

It’s Wednesday night. Well, no. It’s Thursday morning 4:30am in my head & body. But it’s Wednesday night in Austin, Texas.

I’m at South by SouthWest Interactive for the third year running, having arrived, via far too many security gates and angry Customs people, a couple of hours ago.

Tomorrow should be fairly laid back, but Friday, everything kicks into high gear for 5 days of intense conference presentations and panels, evening parties and non-stop meeting new people and seeing old friends.

As old Ottawa friend and Austin roommate Kelly suggests, no need to unfollow me on Twitter, you can just mute me for the weekend if you’re not interested in details of my every move during SXSW.

I’ll report as well as I can from panels, serendipitous meetings over the week and will hopefully post some pics – or at least link to other kind photographers’ shots.

If you’re also in Austin, do tweet me (@vero) and we’ll meet up somewhere, somehow.
