Social Media Business Forum and One Liners


I had the opportunity to volunteer at the Social Media Business Forum in Durham, NC.  I feel very lucky to have been a part of it;  there were social media rock stars in attendance.  I met several people I’ve been following on Twitter and blogs so it was cool to see beyond their thumbnail shot.

I worked the registration desk which was great because I got to register several of these Who’s Who. Along with @mbagrrl, we were checking people in and giving the speakers a special speaker t- shirt. @mbagrrl was a lot smarter than me and looked on the list to see if they were a speaker; my eyes don’t naturally travel along an excel spread sheet. I guess that’s why she has a MBA and I don’t!

My Favorites from SMBF

People are the killer app @pistachio

Create something memorable @JasonFalls

Build social capital @TyDowning

90% life, 10% company @auctiondirect

Be famous for the people you love for how you love them @genochurch

I want people to be responsible for the crap they say in public. Stop allowing anonymous comments @JasonFalls

The most important things in video are the tripod and wireless mic.@dgtlpapercuts (me:Amen!)

It reminded me of being in the video world way back in the day. Everyone was a little eccentric in a really fun, off beat, productive and smart way. That is the kind of energy I enjoy.

  1. Do you work in social media? I just graduated with a Master’s in Communication and hoping to break into marketing. Got the PR thing down – now time to expand.

    Run well, and live!

    • Hi Steve,
      I was working for a non profit in comm and managing their facebook and twitter accounts. Now, I’m looking for another job and hoping social media will be a part of it. If you’re on twitter, find me @anj121 and we can chat some more! Are you training for any races right now?
