Here at InterAct 2008 with My DC Social Media Posse

Here is some great news I got recently from InterAct 2008 — dubbed “interactive media event of the year, merging creativity with technology”:

“You are currently confirmed to speak on the “Grow Your Business Through Social Media” panel, scheduled for Tuesday, September 3o…in the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center Atrium Ballroom at 1300 Pennsylvania Aven NW, Washington DC.”

I get to join an awesome cast of mostly east coast masters of social media.  In fact, there are two Intel Insiders:  Brian Solis (my West Coast posse) and Somwhat Frank Gruber (East Coast boy at large).

Here’s a look at the panel:

Look for some lots of creative ideas mixed with grounded perspectives for how to help your company leap into this era of “opening up,” “connecting” and “growing together.”

Frankly, I’m fired up to be back in DC…although it’s the first time I’ve been here on a Sunday and downtown and the Mall is DEAD quiet, and so many stories are closed.

I dig the megalomania DC architecture, with one not-so tall, but grandiose building next to another trying to stand more more than its next door neighbor.  The architecture is magnificent, with no building higher than the tip of the robust Capitol building.  DC’s nowhere as awesome as Rome, but the knock off columned monuments and museums make Las Vegas look like a movieset.

I did get to spend time catching up over brunch with a great guy and mentor, Rohit, who’s another creative treasure of DC.

I’m looking forward to meeting Jesse and Jim.  And spending the afternoon with Rohit, Brian and Frank, three guys who I don’t (I’m not the only one who doesnt’) get to see enough.  A big thanks to Leslie Bradshaw for helping me get here.

    Ken,

    It was so great to see you, even if for just a short while. Your energy, passion and insight lit up the room and is still being talked about by one Jesse Thomas, among others out here in DC. You did not disappoint and it was my honor to be able to extend the invitation.

    I look forward to future collaboration with you, whether through Intel/NMS or something else… boundless energy and possibility 🙂

    All the very best,
    Leslie
