Online and In-Person Boot-camp – Social Media Week 2011

Social media Week is here and I am busy trying to figure out my schedule of online and in person events. In a way, I consider it bootcamp to learn as much as I can in one week. It should be no surprise that I have tailored my schedule based on crisis response, risk management, emergency response, social media for social good and technology innovation. I am hoping that some of the SMW events are streamed or liveblogged.

Last year I had the honour to present at SMW. I’m excited to focus on learning. My schedule is subject to change as I need to research activities in some of the other cities.

I’ll be in line for the 15-minute wait list for this: Social for Social Good – the power, politics and potential of ideas and causes to change the world.

OpenStreetMap – Mappy Hour. While it is not an official SMW event, I consider it important. Location, location, open source, location.
