How do I register?
Registration is through Eventbrite there may still be a few discount tokens available. Use “joe” for the coupon/discount code, while it lasts. You can also register at the door.
I will be presenting
Not that it’s any huge deal, but I will be participating on a panel with Liz Jostes and Beth Sanders on Social Media Strategy. I will also be prepared to do a short Introduction to Google Plus. You may have noticed that I am advocating (maybe even evangelizing) Google Plus. I figure when prominent social media folks like Brogan, Scoble and Kawasaki are strong proponents, Google + deserves a closer look.
I have been to a lot of “camps”, and I can guarantee you 2 things: 1) You will learn things that will improve your business, your knowledge, or just make you a better person; and 2) You will benefit from NETWORKING with everyone who interests you. There are no elitists at TechCamp, so feel free to approach anyone, discuss your ideas, and get to know them better.
See you there!
