For San Franciscans wanting more in-person online community, consider the following 1st Thursday meetup.
Tonight (August 4) in Palo Alto, the nascent 1st Thursday group meets, enabling Silicon Valley community managers/social media peeps to learn and network. http://www.meetup.com/First-Thursday-Silicon-Valley/events/21560121/
At 7PM, Randy Paynter (Founder and CEO of Care2) will first discuss Care2's community strategy. Then the group will sprout organic discussions (think unconference) on online community/social media topics.Tonight's meetup is walkable from CalTrain California Street station.
This 1st Thursday meetup is fairly new and we are looking for more wonderful members. Please consider joining us, tonight or next time (Oct 6).
Yours, Marc Siegel
