Rob Lane (http://twitter.com/roblane), CEO and co-founder of MyMusic.com (http://www.mymusic.com/), will be the speaker at the January Third Tuesday Toronto #3TYYZ (http://twitter.com/search/realtime?q=%233TYYZ&src=typd).
Rob will share with us the lessons he has gained from founding two social companies - MyMusic.com and, before that, Overlay.tv (http://overlay.tv/). What he has learned about creating something real from the germ of an idea. About building and sustaining community with the people who care about you. About creating a social business - one that listens to what people are saying about it and adjusts its actions and structure to act upon what it hears. About building a team that can create something extraordinary. And about marketing what you've created through both social and traditional channels.
"MyMusic was founded by three guys who love music but hate mindlessly scouring the web to unearth the best content available. We want all the great music content that we know is out there to come to us. We want it sifted, sorted and filtered so that we get exactly and only the stuff we are interested in. We also want a beautiful way to access all that content, anytime we want, anywhere we are. We couldn’t find anything like that online, so we built MyMusic.
"MyMusic.com's mission is "to be a single place where you can go to find, discover and share everything that makes your online music experience fresh, exciting, and uniquely you."
Thank you to our sponsors
Third Tuesday is supported by great sponsors - Cision Canada (http://ca.cision.com/) and Rogers Communications (http://www.rogers.com/) - who believe in our community and help us to bring speakers not just to Toronto but to Ottawa, Calgary and Vancouver as well. Without the sponsors we couldn't make Third Tuesday a truly Canadian affair. So, thank you to the sponsors of the Third Tuesday[masked] season: Cision Canada and Rogers Communications.

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.
