Social Media Club SF/SV Presents: Geolocation Has Its Place... What the Heck is It?
Tuesday, June 15, 2010 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Geolocation Has Its Place... What the Heck is It?
Now that the novelty has worn off, what shall we make of geolocation?
It stands to transform our personal and professional lives. But will it? At what price? Join us Tuesday evening, June 15, as a stellar Social Media Club panel discusses the SWOT of Geolocation: Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats.
What capabilities does geolocation truly bring? What are its unintended consequences? Who wins and loses? What are insiders saying today that will be common knowledge tomorrow?
*You* are a big part of this event as well, as we're crowdsourcing questions and comments around each of our topic areas before the event - right now. Send in input/feedback by posting to Twitter with the hashtag #smcsfsv and the letter of the area you want to address (S, W, O or T). You can also post to our brand new Facebook page [http://www.facebook.com/SMCSFSV].
We'll present the findings of your input and compare and contrast that with what our expert panel has to say led by moderator Sam Whitmore.
Join us for a lively discussion, drinks & nosh, incredible views of the bay, and outstanding networking with your social media colleagues from San Francisco and the Silicon Valley!
