Social Media Club San Francisco/Silicon Valley


We are using this wiki space as out online whiteboard where we flesh out topics/speakers/sponsors, etc.


For up to date SMC SFSV news, please join the Facebook group, which we are using as our main communications hub. There is also a Twitter account for those who prefer notices that way.




Our schedule of events is below. Locations, hosts/sponsors and topics will be listed as they become available. All events are FREE, unless otherwise stated. As agendas become available, we'll add links to them from this page (click on the date). Thanks to our sponsors, and to everyone on the volunteer team for their hard work to make this schedule possible!


SPONSORS WANTED: We're currently looking for sponsors for upcoming events. Please contact kristie [at] socialmediaclub [dot] org if you're interested in sponsoring an event--you can suggest a topic and help us with a venue!


IDEAS WANTED: We're also looking for great ideas for upcoming events. Check out the SF Bay Area Ideas listed below and share your thoughts on possible upcoming events, speakers, sponsors, etc.  


2009 SCHEDULE (we meet on the third Tuesday - mostly - of every month)


Registration is required for each event - $10 presale or $20 at the door. SMC 'card carrying' members get in for free unless otherwise noted (meaning if you have paid for a membership).



Please tag all blogs, podcasts, vlogs, and photos with smcsfsv and socialmediaclub.


If you upload photos to Flickr, we would appreciate you adding them into the Social Media Club pool at http://www.flickr.com/groups/socialmediaclub/. Thank you!



ALL of our past events are listed on the Social Media Club events page.






This is a white space for ideas for upcoming events. Hopefully it will help us match ideas up with sponsors, organizers, venues and dates! Throw your ideas into the table below. It doesn't matter how crazy they are. We'll consider them all. Thanks!


Other possible topics/speakers:


  • Nonprofits - can get Marnee from Compumentor and Rachel W. from NetSquared and a couple others to highlight what nonprofits have been doing in SM.
  • Blogger tour to China, for instance, maybe with Shel Israel, Christine Lu, Robert Scoble? Can also add in Israel and South Africa if we want real global as several friends have done blogger tours there.
  • James Hanusa on web3.0, not the symantic web, but the collective web - working with the Change.org, Change the Web, Silicon Valley Innovation Institute and/or the Innovation Journalism Dept. at Stanford folks.
  • Journalism 2.0 - invite local newspapers, TV stations, Craig Newmark, JD Lasica, Tom Foremski, etc. to discuss Social Media + News 2.0.. Might be able to get local TV station to host.
  • Social Media for business  (get a realtor, a lawyer, a SMB, etc] to share how they are using tools.
  • Social Media and Healthcare. I know folks at Blue Shield and Cathryn has a hospital as client. Can get a couple more.
  • Social Media and Education??
  • Favorite SM tool in 2009???
  • Derek Powazek on Fray.com: Fray was an early online community in 'web 1.0'.  it has since been reborn as a community built magazine
  • Online communities thru the years: From compuserve to The Well to mid-to-lates 90's AOL to Facebook and beyond:  Would love to see a panel combined of participants from all of these.  Hear how online communities have changed and how they haven't
  • Creating sticky content: This would look at what makes content interesting enough to be spread. Looking at what makes videos viral, certain blog posts popular, etc. The session would make a distinction between content that brings people in and content that people feel compelled to share with others in their network (by retweeting, blogging etc. about the original content) and focus on the latter.

  Authenticity and Transparency.   TBD TBD TBD Case studies: Strumpette.com, Nashville is Talking - Too Transparent/Authentic? Are there any issues for people with different identities for work & personal? Are we going to hold people and companies accountable for their words? Tim O'Reilly developed a blogger code of ethics. Are people really policing each other?  Is "Authenticity" the same for journalists as it is for bloggers, for individuals, or PR/Corporate agents or entities? Let's define "Authenticity" vs. "Transparency." Is one ever appropriate without the other? If so, when and why?..
