So I am doing the Monday morning thing of opening up the email from Charlie O'Donnell. His weekly events newsletter is the best thing Charlie ever did.
Charlie Bit My Finger
And now he has become aware. He is going pro with it. You get the premium version for $5 a month. I am cheap. I am not signing up. But good luck with it.
Two events stood out for me for this week.
Tuesday 7PM Global Impact with Social Media Panel
Panel discussion with some premier organizations doing innovative social media work on an international/global scale. The discussion will cover how social media tools are used in this context, what particular challenges there are in using these tools, and how your organization can apply some of the same techniques to promote your own global or local mission. Panelists:
Arturo Romboli, UNICEF
Øistein Moskvil Thorsen, Oxfam
Anna Curran, Crisis Camp
Thursday 6:30PM Digital Dumbo
Come join us and Brooklyn-based behavioral data company, Saaspire, to celebrate the launch of its SaaS-based behavioral analytics tool, FocusLab, at Digital DUMBO. FocusLab was recently showcased at O'Reilly's Strata Conference, which covers emerging opportunities in Big Data. The SaaS-based tool enables web operators to visualize data and gain insights into user behavior. The event will feature a look into the affinities and motivations of visitors to RCRDLBL.com, a premier music destination for free, curated, legal, MP3 downloads from the hottest marquee and emerging artists. RCRDLBL is owned by Downtown Music, a record label that artists such as Gnarls Barkley, Cold War Kids, and Santigold call home.
All Digital DUMBO attendees will receive free trial access to the FocusLab software and will be treated to music from DJ Ian Beck, who will be spinning hits from Downtown Music artists. As usual, there will be a free beer and wine bar!
I already RSVPs for the event Tuesday. It is in Chinatown.
