Hi - I like the idea you have underway! I am working on an initiative to create standards and methods for "information development" at www.openmethodology.org which includes social media standards. Some example articles in this space include: http://mike2.openmethodology.org/wiki/Category:Enterprise_2.0 We're also applying the approach to build a social media-based approach to sustainability at www.openm http://mike2.openmethodology.org/wiki/Open-sustainability_Solution_Offering

It would be good to find a way to work together - well defined standards are definitely needed around data portability and sharing in this space.

I'd like to suggest a topic (and a speaker!). I've just written a book called Connection Generation, that proposes that social media is an enabler for greater social and business connection. I'd love to speak on the topic of "Social Media and Connection". I won't actively plug my book much (just kidding) but discuss examples of how the social media creates and enables social and business connections. Let me know if any interest.

Cheers, Iggy

Marcia and Iggy, what city are you based out of? You should check out the local teams page and see if there is a SMC chapter nearby, then work with the local organizational team to get connected to everyone (and Iggy, you can speak with them about leading a session one night).

Sean, would love to learn more. Jon Gatrell (in Atlanta) is leading the initiative for standards for SMC, if you send me an email to kristie [at] socialmediaclub [dot] org, I would be happy to connect you two.

Sonia, we don't have a group live near you yet (I believe), as I think the closest one is Boston...but we would be happy to help you get something started in your local community if you were interested. Shoot me an email and we can chat how to get you deeper involved and connected with the rest of the community.
