Since next week looks a little empty, I decided to do a 2 week radar posting:
NetSquared DC March Meetup [link]
When: Tuesday, March 18th 7pm – 9pm (they usually have a large crowd so get there promptly at 7pm)
Where: Affinity Lab
2451 18th Street NW 2nd Floor(above The Diner in Adams Morgan) [map]
Details: Learn about APIs (application programming interface) with Greg Elin and Josh Ruihley from Sunlight Labs.
Washington Blogger February Meetup [link]
When: Wednesday, March 19th 7pm – 9pm
Where: Regional Food and Drink
810 7th St. NW
Washington , DC 20001
Details: Local Washington area bloggers meetup for good times and good conversation.
Digital Democracy Panel Discussion:Politics, Privacy & Creativity in the Age of the Internet
When: Wednesday, March 26th 6:30pm – 9:30pm
Where: National Press Club
529 14th Street NW, 13th Floor
Washington, DC 20045
(Metro Center Metro Stop)
Details: A cocktail reception and panel discussion where expert alumni and professors from the Boston University community will examine the implications of digital media on political communication, news reporting and expression of opinion during the 2008 campaign season. (This last one might not be open to the general public, a former colleague of mine is a BU graduate and invited me to come.)
Most likely I will only attend the last event since this week is getting kind of busy for me. But I highly encourage those of you in the Washington DC area to attend these events! It is a great way to meet folks who are passionate about social media and plus you never know what ideas/connections can spark!
