This morning I had the pleasure of having breakfast with Jeff Pulver and a few dozen other fine folks at Enigma in Vancouver. Considering it was a pretty early start on a Sunday morning, it was a pretty big turnout.
Jeff organizes these ‘social media breakfasts’ all over the world. Using tools like Twitter and Facebook, he puts out an open invitation for people to come out and experience some ‘real-time social tagging’. It’s an interesting way to meet a bunch of people in a unique way. Basically you are given a couple of name badge stickers (as part of your personal social media toolkit) one for your name and a personal tagline and another to receive small stickers from others with their own tags they create for you after chatting for a bit.
Here’s a short video I shot of Jeff explaining to the crowd his upcoming Social Media Jungle Road Show and his own introduction to the group…I’m particularly surprised/happy about how good the audio turned out from the onboard mic on my D90 considering I was across the room:

It was a fun way to start off the new year reconnecting with many local friends and meeting new ones. Check out my Flickr set for more photos from breakfast.
This was Jeff’s second breakfast trip to Vancouver…unfortunately I couldn’t make the first one last summer so was glad I made the trek downtown today for this one. Thanks again, Jeff!
