Musing on knowledge management, aid and development with limited resources

Are you going to social media week?

with one comment

 

Next week (7-11 February) is Social Media Week.

Hundreds of social media related events will be taking place in six cities around the world (New York, London, San Francisco, Sao Paolo, Istanbul, Hong Kong) many of which are free to attend.

A lot of them are related to use of social media for business, but there are a number of events on the New York schedule which might be of interest to people working on development or knowledge management.

Here are my picks from the New York agenda:

Citizen 2.0 – Social Media and the Future of Participatory Government, Hosted by Reboot

I probably won’t make them all but I hope to at least catch the two events organized by the UN Global Pulse and Citizen 2.0. Will blog and tweet later about what I learn.

 

See you there? (good tweetup possibilities anyone?)

If you can’t attend in person you can also follow on twitter via hashtag  #smwnyc
