Last week, I blogged about a networking event that I had learned about at the last minute, a Girl Geek dinner, hosted by Sun Microsystems. The CBS affiliate in Denver, KCNC, Channel 4 News, decided to cover it, complete with a camera person in the lobby of Sun. (I wasn't able to embed the video here but if you click on this link, you'll see the short clip. If you look really closely near the end of the clip, you'll see the back of me in bright green as I hug a friend.)
On my other blog, A Bigger Voice, I wrote about what I learned from the speaker for the event, Deirdre Straughan (who was a stand-in for the flu-stricken Linda Skrocki.) Deirdre works for Sun as a video blogger and an online community organizer. She spoke about Sun's use of social media and how to apply it as individuals.
Hooray for smart women, coming together, to share, support, and learn from each other! I'll post about the next Girl Geek dinner once it's announced. If you are interested in organizing the next dinner, please contact Deirdre, deirdre.straughan [at] sun.com. She doesn't "own" this type of event but she certainly can give you a tip or two about organizing the next dinner.
