This is how I think about the Club- sort of a formalized (but not too formalized) Tweetup/First Wednesdays – I suspect there will be many of the same faces, but, as we’ve seen with the Tweetups, new faces appear every week – and that is a very good thing.
Why so much offline social media activity?
People want to be connected and to be a part of something. This authentic connectivity is something that social media facilitates.
People have asked – why so involved? The answers are simple:
1) I believe that a more connected, more involved, more invested community is apt to positively impact and affect the community.
2) Selfishly, I love meeting smart people.
3) Knowing more people – in this economy or any other – is a good thing.Â
More to come in the coming days and weeks about the group’s vision, goals and structure, but for now, please join us for Happy Hour at the 12th Street Tap House tomorrow afternoon (it’s sure be nice to be able to link to an updated "what’s on draft now" at the Tap House!).
