This week I have a couple of events I will be attending here in the KC area and would love to meet some fellow twitter users, readers of my blog, new peeps in general.

First we have the SMCKC meetup thursday night at Nicholson Kovac where the topic of discussion will be using twitter/social media with business and yours truly will be on the panel to discuss this topic…now I know you are saying I really don’t have any experience in that area but hey I do have experience with twitter and using for my own personal branding as (jeff)isageek as well as you first need to understand twitter/social media tools in order to use them for your business needs so I think I will fit in nicely there. Should be a good time and a great discussion.

Second we have the tweetup/meetup/calling all geeks for the pool hall tweetup at Side Pockets in Lenexa Saturday night. This is just a come and hang out, meet some fellow social media/twitter/blogger/brightkite ect ect. types.

Both events should be a blast and if you get a chance drop on by. Hope to see you all there!

I saw one of my fellow bloggers I follow Jessie Stay had the opportunity to be on a panel of tweeters recently in Utah and since I am always up for listening to how people are using technology/social media as well as just great discussion I figured I would throw the video up on my site for you to enjoy.

So check out the video and listen in on some great conversation that took place at the coworkutah tweetup.

Panel Q&A

So there ya have it!!! Isn’t it great how technology and social media has allowed us to attend events, revisit events, and share events that are going on around the country and around the world even.

As I mentioned before I am always excited to go to local tweetups and events here in the midwest and its great to be able to follow others where every they might be.

Last night Billy Fairchild aka tw3nty3ight and myself put together an online tweetup and I would say it was a huge success! We had guests ranging from everyday twitter users to caleb at toluu and the guys from “The Guys Podcast“.

Everyone was great and we had a chance to give everyone who was able to say hello and talk about some of the stuff they are doing online or share whatever they wanted.

Thanks to everyone who joined the call and we look foward to putting on another in the near future.

My buddy Billy Fairchild aka tw3nty3ight is planning to host an online tweetup (first that I know of) this thursday night at 9:30pm est on talkshoe. I plan to jump on the line and chat it up with what I am sure will be a mix of people I know and then others I have not yet had the chance to meet.

Overall it should be fun times and if you get a chance jump on and hang out with us. And if you think you might make it let me know and I will make sure to watch for ya in the room and say hello.
