A few weeks ago, I attended the organizing meeting for Third Tuesday Vancouver organized by Joseph Thornley. I had heard about the Third Tuesday events in Toronto and Ottawa and thought it would be interesting to get involved in the local version myself instead of just being an attendee.
I got to meet a bunch of great people (seems to be my theme lately) and even convinced Tod that he needed to get an iPhone (which he did shortly thereafter). Joseph has a summary post about the meeting as well as an interview with Tod explaining how Third Tuesday will work.
This coming Tuesday (August 21st) is the Inaugural Vancouver Meeting at the Soho Club in Yaletown (1283 Hamilton Street) from 6pm-8:30pm (thanks to Christine for making the arrangements). This also happens to be the actual Third Tuesday of the month which apparently doesn’t happen all that often due to the schedules of the speakers that attend. Tuesday’s meeting will be more of a ‘get to you know you’ gathering to kick off Third Tuesday in Vancouver.
Here’s the event description on the Facebook Event page from which you can RSVP if you are interested in attending:
Third Tuesday is a group of people interested in discussing social media — from podcasts to blogs, Facebook to Plaxo. Bring your ideas, gripes, half-baked thoughts, and business cards.
See you on Tuesday!
