Saturday is the second annual CREATE South conference in Myrtle Beach. The free one-day conference focuses on self-expression through new media, and puts a huge emphasis on teaching and learning. CREATE is for everybody with an interest in new media or self-expression using technology, regardless of skill level. Everybody stands to benefit. It’s not too late to get registered — and it’s free!
There are four tracks — writing, making media, art, and creating community. I’ll be leading a discussion at 2:20 in the community track about the viral nature of social networks and how you can leverage it for newsgathering, organizing events, and just plain making jokes. Afterward, I’ll be sitting on a panel along with Dan Tennant, Heather Solos, and Raymond Owens from WCBD about how we’re able to intersect technology with gatherings in “real life” (so to speak).
I’m looking forward to CREATE and hope to see many of you there!
