On December 17, 2010 my friend Joselin Mane of Boston TweetUp hosted the second annual MegaTweetUp2 at the Microsoft Nerd center in Boston. At last count there was approximately 500 people that were registered for the event.

There were so many activities going on all at the same time you had options to venture into one or more of them.

Once you registered with the team of MegaTweetUp greeters and made it down the grand staircase, multi-tasking became the word of the day. People we tweeting, creating media, photos, videos, content, updating facebook, photo galleries, checking in on Four Square and so much more. There was live entertainment and short presentations by some of  Bostons social media best explaining how to… in a flash style format.

I had the opportunity to stream the entire event live to the internet, conducted a few interviews as people stopped in to say hello and see some of the technology I was using. You can see the entire recorded stream at BruceKGarber.TV on demand. Just click this link then the red carpet.

Here are a few photographs of some friends that stopped by.

Note: I drove to the event with my good friend Ben Spark who happen to be the official photographer for MegaTweetUp2. He has posted a link to some of the 500 photographs he recorded. Here are Bens links:

Venturing off again

17 12 2009

I’m venturing off again. Together with my friend Jim Jones we have created a new group called Southern New England Media Makers.

This group will meet the second Sunday of each month in Providence RI over breakfast.

The intent is to connect with others having the same interest of making media and social media in general. A place where we each will be given an opportunity to share what we are doing now, what tools we’re using and what technologies are available to help us make media. This is free to the public.

To learn more please visit us on the Southern New England Media Makers web site and follow us on Twitter.

We hope to see you there.
