Social Media Hour: Gearing Up For BlogWorld Expo 2010

October 12, 2010

2:30 pm

Freshly back from a stint in LA, Cathy is back in her San Francisco studio for this week’s episode. On this week’s docket – the upcoming BlogWorld Expo and a deep discussion about ethics and integrity in the social media community. This year’s BlogWorld Expo, like previous years, has several themed tracks. This year the food track is not only the largest it’s ever been, but it’s the largest at the conference over all.

This is in large part due to the involvement of Babette Pepaj, the CEO of Bakespace. Through Babette’s deep engagement, this year’s BWE will have many tracks of conversations, a range of foodie activities and some live broadcasting from the show floor. Babette joins this week’s show to talk about the growth of her TechMunch food events and what to expect this week in Vegas.

Also on this week’s episode, Founder of Social Media Club, Chris Heuer, who will join to discuss a recent incident in the SMC community that resulted in fairly frothy conversation around someone who hijacked a SMC chapter and then felt the best way to address things was to attack Chris. We’ll talk a bit about the specific incident, but we’ll also focus on the issue of what to do when people behave badly and how the community can and should hold them accountable.
