event::about  With so much choice in how consumers tap into to their social graph, how do media and brands reach, connect and influence these networks at scale? As consumers get entrenched in an increasing number of general and niche social networks, the challenge for organizations to both reach and influence them is getting tougher. This wealth of options is happening both within social networks like Facebook, and externally on email, IM and others. As these channels are reaching ubiquity amongst connected users and are increasingly integrated with 'Connects' from Facebook and Google, the business world has got to wrap its head around how to engage, interact and influence this audience. But how? What techniques will work without irritating users and staff trying to scale their efforts to maximize the audience? And what does the future hold? Is a world where all these tools are connected a marketing panacea? Join us as we explore these challenges, come armed with questions, opinions and get involved in the debate.

event::about  The world of sports used to be ruled by the calendar - game dates, tournaments, TV events, with the odd DUI thrown in. Now a story breaks and before you can say "ESPN" it's all over Twitter and there's a Taiwanese CGI video dramatization in your inbox. Shaq took Twitter by storm a year and a half ago, leading a charge that led to various benched players and Mark Cuban getting massive fines; the sordid tale of Tiger Woods turned the carefully-controlled golf media on its head as every other form of media rudely muscled in; and according to Google Zeitgeist, the Bible is now "Volcanic" in its hotness thanks to Tim Tebow. Meanwhile ESPN thinks they can muzzle the Sports Guy even as Deadspin is clearing out their tipbox. What is going ON? Fortunately for sports media, a lot - and no one is better to tell you about it than the people on this panel. Destination doors open at 4:30 for pre-panel gathering, panel runs from 5-6, then we hang out for happy hour ($3 well drinks, $3 beers, Jell-O shots. Yes, Jell-O shots.)
