We have a great speaker for our inaugural Third Tuesday: Shel Israel, co-author of Naked Conversations. Naked Conversations is THE definitive book on blogging. Shel Israel, along with his co-author Robert Scoble, explored not only how to apply blogging to communication by why it is essential for organizations to embrace blogging. Shel will lead off the session with a presentation on Naked Conversations and his thoughts on the evolution of blogging and social media since the book was published. He will also talk about his new book, Global Neighbourhoods. Following Shel's presentation, we'll have a question and answer session with plenty of opportunity for everyone to meet Shel. So, join us for the inaugural Third Tuesday. Let's get to know each other, talk about being Public Relations Practitioners, and discuss what we want out of our Meetups.

    Shel and Mark were really good, but I felt the overall topics were quite general and not really specific. So for those who are blogging and used to the whole culture, the formal part wasn't quite as valuable, but questions and pre and post schmooze were great.

    I thought that the event was very well organised and executed. The talk was interested and the q&a was ended at a good time to let the conversation flow naturally.

    Very nice event. Thank you to all the organizers. Could add an element that encourages introductions. I'm not from the PR field directly, but I'm looking to meet PR people, especially free agents, solo practitioners who would be available to work with our company for project work. Having some kind of capability for this would be great an the event.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
