You may have heard of Pecha Kucha or Ignite events, and this is along the same lines – people sharing something interesting related to social media or digital culture in a talk that’s strictly five minutes long. To differentiate ourselves from those events, we’re making slides optional – but the five minutes time limit is strict.
What can you tell us about? Any interesting technology, any online social movement, any online trend, any innovative digital project you’re involved in or anything else you want to share – come along and tell us about it. The only thing off-limits is promotional talks for commercial enterprises.
We should have an inspiring evening, learning about… well, that’s up to you. (Scroll down for what has already been booked, then get in touch and add your name and idea).
If you’d like give a talk, email us right away: admin AT socialmediamanchester.net
If you’d like to attend (whether speaking or just coming along to watch), add your name to our Lanyrd page. See you there!
SMC_MCR takes place: 6pm – 9pm, Tuesday 6 March 2012.
Venue: Matt & Phreds, 64 Tib Street, Manchester, M4 1LW
Here are some of the ideas we have so far:
- The strange world of Twitter bots.
- Love in the wild.
- Turing’s Sunflowers.
Get in touch and add yours to the list!
