Jeff Jarvis Launches Public Parts in Canada

Jeff Jarvis is a person to be listened to. And in November, Third Tuesday attendees will have an opportunity to hear and meet Jeff, and get a personally autographed copy of his new book, Public Parts: How Sharing in the Digital Age Improves the Way We Work and Live.

Blogger at Buzz Machine. Author of What Would Google Do? Associate professor and director of the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at the City University of New York's (CUNY) Graduate School of Journalism. Co-host of This Week in Google with Leo Laporte and Gina Trapani on Leo's TWiT netcast network. And now author of a new book, Public Parts.

Jeff will be coming to third Tuesday on a special day, Friday, November 18. Yes, that's Third Tuesday on a Friday. A great way to end the work week and kick off the weekend.

This should be a great event and we've booked a larger hall so that we can accommodate as many people as possible. Still, if past experience is any guide, we'll sell out.

Your admission fee to this Third Tuesday includes a personal copy of Public Parts, which you'll receive when you check in at the event. So you'll have your copy ready when you meet Jeff and he offers to autograph it for you.

This will be a great event. I hope you'll join us for it.

Thank you to our sponsors

Third Tuesday is a community-oriented, volunteer-driven event. And we wouldn't be able to bring great speakers like Jeff Jarvis to Third Tuesdays across the country without the support of some like-minded sponsors. We've been lucky to have some great companies step up over the past several years to help us make Third Tuesday happen. Big thanks are due to CNW Group, Rogers Communications, Canadian Internet Registration Authority, Radian6 and Cision Canada for making the 2011/12 Third Tuesday season possible.

    The speaker was excellent and so was the discussion. The venue choice was good for locations, but there weren't enough seats (understanable due to the number of attendees, but a long time to stand in heels) and the service was poor.

    Jeff's reflections were both personal and professional - challenging the current preoccupation of governments with privacy over sharing and collaboration. A better balance is required if we are to truly embrace the benefits of "publicness".

    Brilliant presentation by Jeff Jarvis. As a convert to publicness I hope is message gets shared widely.

    Jeff is an engaging and animated speaker. I really enjoyed this event. It was of high calibre. I could have happily listened for another two hours.

    Fantastic talk by Jeff, and great questions afterwards. Thanks for setting this up! If you missed it, or are interested... I blogged a summary of his major points here: http://journomel.com/2011/11/18/jeff-jarvis-reveals-his-public-parts/

    The subject, and speaker were (it almost goes without saying) excellent. Perhaps I missed the fine print, but I was actually taken pleasantly by surprise with a copy of the book, and even more delighted by the opportunity to have it signed while chatting with the very amicable Mr. Jarvis. The presentation itself was very engaging and thought provoking, and I appreciated the ample QandA time at the end. I appreciated the professional tech support to, which offered great sound quality and very comfortable lighting.

    I really enjoyed how Mr. Jarvis' message of openess and sharing felt like a mix of opportunity and challenge to those in attendance. Mr. Jarvis speaks with passion and conviction and a healthy dose of humour. I will be reading Public Parts this weekend and working my way through BuzzMachine.com in the foreseeable future.

    Great speaker and content. Provocative. I learned a few new things and considered a few others.

    While many speakers may be entertaining at the time, what they say won't stick with you. That's not the case with Jeff Jarvis. I have his book for reinforcement! No, seriously, I did find his presentation memorable. It brought me in mind of the excitement I felt at a conference some 15 to 20 years ago hearing an Ithaca U prof talk about the changing nature of communications. She was encouraging us to think of our "products" as workable clay,instead of finished, polished pieces sent on their way. That resonated with me, just as Jeff's words about the internet did last night.

    Q&A session was a little too long, but I can't really fault the audience for their enthusiasm.

    This could've been my first Third Tuesday, but I won't have access to my PayPal deposit until the 21st. Maybe next time. I'm just glad to be back in the rat race and looking forward to meeting y'all soon.

    Chris, I'm sure that we're going to sell out this event. So please register in advance to ensure you have a place. Also, we will need to have numbers in advance for our book order. Bottom line: please help us out by registering in advance.

    Rick, We've had a real problem with no- shows when people could register to bring guests. Many people would grab a couple spots and then realise they couldn't use them only when it was took late for others to use them. Also, it helps community to grow when attendees can see who else is going. That's not possible with guests. Please encourage the people who you think might enjoy the event to register directly.

    I would like to bring a guest but I see no way to do that easily, can I double the fee and assume that I will get two passes?
