The Orange County Register
625 N Grand Ave, Santa Ana, CA (map)
Come celebrate with The Orange County Register and celebrate Social Media Day!
I may be working instead of being there...which should be a good thing, right?
working is always a good thing...
Darn! missed it! and in our town too.I'll be there next time!OC High School of the Arts OShop
I was happy to attend the first one last year, but will miss this one because I'll be teaching my How to Write a Nonfiction Book in 90 Days workshop. Get there early for good parking and be sure to check out the great food from the vendors.
I would love to come. Is there room for one more?
One of the highlights for me at the Orange County event was its location at The Orange County Register. I blogged about the tour of the pressroom and the irony of a newspaper hosting the 4th largest Social Media Day meetup in the country! Just wanted to share and welcome any and all comments: http://socialmediaintention...
@rydertoddsmith will be teaching a free class on social networking and a second on "How the Internet Works" at Tustin Library in late July for any folks who are new to this space and want a guided tour. message me on twitter for details.

Yes, The Register is a venue on Foursquare ... http://foursquare.com/venue...
Let's get that swarm badge!
Excited to represent Chapman University's Dodge College at this afternoon's meetup, and finally meet some of you Tweeps in person!
Is the OC Register already a venue in Foursquare...so busy haven't had time to look? Any special hashtags for event check-in? @BodyByB
I hope we all get a swarm badge today on Foursquare. Don't forget to check in!

John's comment is spot on even if some of us are able to carpool.
Is there going to be enough parking for everyone??
Looking forward to it! @kimberlykeown
See you all there! @tanyasalcido
from previous post: bring a few bucks for the trucks â€“ the participating vendors will charge for the food.
Looking forward to it ;-)) http://twitter.com/epicskin
Sneak a peek at some at some of today's speakers. It's @RochelleVeturis @jonlan and @TedNguyen (and @KristinSlocum and me) on CNN. http://bit.ly/cnnsmday
No mention if food trucks are complimentary so I'll bring a wad of cash
Looks like a good set of speakers. I may try to attend so I can get ideas my current project: http://www.bankaround.com.

The response to this event is really quite amazing so far!...quite unlike what I've seen of late in interest at other events.
Do you mind Renee sharing a little about it's own promotion within social media and other ways? Might be a great study for us that are looking to utilize social media effectively.
Ugh, frickin Meetup errors. Sorry for the sin of triple posting, guys...quadruple posting now...
Big thanks to the OC Register for setting all this up! Gonna try and make it if I can! @jonbarilone facebook.com/jon.barilone
Sounds great! See everyone there.@joyloo
Hey Dan, Jon Lansner will be hosting between a series of eight speakers. There will also be 6 or 7 food trucks in the lot and various booths. The speakers will be Rochelle Veturis, Morgan Brown, Ted Nguyen, Bryan Elliott, Jim Marks, Nancy Luna, Robert Watson and Dustin Luther. You can find out more at http://bit.ly/mashoc . From a fellow web-tool user, I hope you can make it!
Is it just networking, or is there any kind of program?
A parking lot reserved for the event ... and there *is* a bus stop right in front of our building!
Carpool! Speaking of car...where do we park?
Looking forward to the event.
I wil try to make it.....
The Register is throwing open the flaps of its big community tent. I'll be there to listen and learn.
I see a few familiar faces on the PR front in the "I'm interested" list. For others I haven't met yet, looking forward to doing so on Wednesday! A special shout out to IABC and PRSA for helping spread the word about this event!-Eric Morgan
@Cerebreate and Rebecca, we will need to follow the law with regards to public nudity. That said, we have discussed a pajama jam in past social conversations: http://twitter.com/ksablan/... #justsayin
@Cerebreate - Oh, we will be! In front of the little computer screens we carry everywhere, live-tweeting & uploading pics of our new & old IRL friends :-)
Hmm ... Something ironic about meeting in person for Social Media Day. Shouldn't we all be in our underoos in front of our computers instead?
So glad to see so many people leaving comments. I look forward to meeting Edwin, Lorena, Shay, Caylin, Jennifer, Tina, Flora, Holly, Greg, etc.
I love helping others with social media, and look to network with those who have a passion to prosper.http://www.mcintoshmarketin...
Looking forward to learning more about social-media and ridding my fear of losing desired privacy by joining in on the revolution!~~ Lori Pollard
Looking forward to increasing my social-media awareness www.shay.usana.com
This sounds like an awesome event! I will be there.
This sounds like fun! Can't wait to see how some represent. <g>
Amazing! I'll be there.
Can't wait to celebrate Social Media with ya'll! xo,www.hollyinheels.com
I'll be there to represent the four-legged social creatures of the world :-)
I confirmed today that Nancy Luna, the Register's Fast Food Maven, will also be speaking at the event.
Thanks Holly and Vicki! Hey Kristina, the list of speakers and food trucks can be found at http://bit.ly/mashoc
Sounds like fun! I'll plan to be there.
Very excited for an opportunity like this - thank you!
Kristina, thanks for asking. The details are still forming, but we will definitely have speakers and food trucks. Most of the socializing and food will happen outside during all three hours of the event. Speakers will talk indoors in two 45-minute sessions with some networking time before, after and between the sessions.
Can you provide the agenda? Speakers or just socializing?
Looking forward to it :-) And the timing is perfect. I'm driving from L.A. but will have plenty of time to get back for the Culver City event that night.
So far, Taco Dawg, Piaggio On Wheels, Calbi, Oh For Sweets Sake and Tropical Shave Ice food trucks have told me they are coming. -Nancy Luna (aka Fast Food Maven)
