Last night there was food, there was beer, and most of all there was a huge crowd. Nicholson Kovac was the location and the audience was hovering around 90 or so.

Social Media Club KC put on a meetup for those in the community who are interested in all types of social media and the social web.

I got the chance to be on a panel that discussed using twitter to help your business and what was kool about it was in social media fashion the panel pretty much grew to the whole room.  Social media at its finest!

The crew from the Life In The Tubes Video Podcast were there with their cameras so once that video makes it’s way on the interweb you can bet I will be sharing it with everyone.

Upcoming Events

I have to say over the last few months we have seen incredible growth in attendance and participation and with some more great events coming up in the Kansas City area like Startup Weekend and in the midwest with Big Omaha we are really seeing the region grow and make its presence felt in tech/social media arena.   It is exciting times and I am glad to be a part of getting things going.

Hope to see you all soon!

Over the past few months I have been working on making it to local meetups here in the Kansas City area that fit interests I have in hopes of meeting kool new people, make contacts, and just have a good time.

Kansas City Podcasters
This meetup is for podcasters as well as fans of podcasting or those wanting to get into podcasting.  I have been toying with the idea of doing one and have dabbled in it a bit but again just a fun group to get togather with and talk about whatever be it podcasting or something tech based.

Meetings usually take place on the 2nd Saturday of the month at Johnny’s Tavern on 119th street.

Geek Out Friday
Geek Out is the newest meetup I have been going to and it is pretty much just geeks getting togather and talking about whatever geek topic we want…could be web related, tech related, gaming, ect.  Pretty much just a place for geeks to hang out.

Takes place at Daily Dose at 135th and Quivera on Friday nights from 11ish to 2am (closing time).

Do you go to any of these?  What are your thoughts on them?  Have another meetup you would like to share with those in the kc area?  Feel free to add a comment to the discussion and let us know any details.

My main reason behind this post is to let those in the community know about different ways they can meet others with similar interests.
