Yes, I know. Probably any day of the calendar you can find a social media conference somewhere within 50 miles of you. But pay attention, this conference is all meat and little fat. Sponsored by the Social for New Communications Research, it brings together top-flight researchers from around the globe in one place for two days. You will see original research results, thoughtful commentary by practitioners, and make some wonderful contacts with the experts. It is a small, very focused single-track event with some very bright people. You can find the agenda here.
I will be there, of course, and presenting some initial findings from a new study exploring the impact of social media on telecommunications service providers that is sponsored by HP. What, you work for a service provider and haven’t yet taken my survey? Click here now, please! You don’t want to be left out.
SNCR is a labor of love of Jen McClure, who I first met back in the good ole’ days when Ziff Davis ran Interop and when Interop had a lock on the Internet brain trust. Her non-profit has done some amazing work in the few short years it has been around.
Register for the conference here. It isn’t a free event, but well worth your time and money to attend.
