Fork in the road blog

This blog is a place for ideas, perspectives and evidence that social media and other innovative technologies can and will flourish alongside face-to-face meetings. And, as we explore the world of Web 2.0 and emerging technology, we’ll always be looking for the next big thing to enhance the connection and collaboration at the core of every meeting, conference, and exhibition so that as the next fork in the road approaches, we’ll see it coming.

    I participated vltruaily in certain portions of the NYC Event Camp. Because of that experience, I’ll definitely be tapping in for certain sessions for this one. The three things I love most about participating in Event Camps 1) There are usually people in the live and virtual audience I know and trust (great to see them on video or the twitter stream)2) Event Camp pushes the envelope with experiential content. You learn what works/doesn’t work.3) Dirt cheap live and free remotely. They’re just trying to cover costs baby. It’s about the attendees not about the organizer.Hope to see you there!
