Back in 2005, no one was tweeting, pinning or Instagramming and few of us were on Facebook. And when you mentioned social media, you were usually talking about RSS feeds, podcasts and blogs.
In what felt like the Wild West of social media, a group of Toronto journalists and entrepreneurs got excited about all the changes on the horizon and the impact they would have on journalism, business, education and culture - nine weeks later, they started a conference of ideas – mesh (http://meshconference.com/), now in its ninth year.
Since then, the social and digital landscape has evolved, influencers have come and gone and the mesh folks have experienced it all. Join co-founders Mathew Ingram (https://twitter.com/mathewi), Mark Evans (https://twitter.com/markevans), Stuart McDonald (https://twitter.com/stuartma) and Sheri Moore (https://twitter.com/s_moore) in an up-front and candid conversation about where we’ve been, what surprised them most and where we’re heading in the future.
5:30 p.m. Doors open, meet new and old friends
6:00 p.m. Panel discussion, followed by Q&A
6:45 p.m. Community mix and mingle
Draw for mesh conference tickets
Everyone who attends the event has a chance to enter to win one of two tickets to the 2014 mesh conference, May 27 to 28, 2014 in Toronto.

We want students to be able to attend
Third Tuesday is a great opportunity to hear about the latest developments in social media and to network with business and thought leaders. And we don't want students to miss out on this opportunity. So, if you are a student and would like to attend, don't let the admission fee stop you. Simply present your student ID card at the time you sign into Third Tuesday and we'll refund your admission fee, courtesy of Thornley Fallis (http://thornleyfallis.ca/).
