Social Media Seattle event

After calling in patriotic and taking the day off to fully revel in all the inauguration grandeur, I went to a Social Media Seattle networking event to meet some other locals using social media tools.

Nice bunch, good food, chatted with several folks about what they do and how social media fits in. Some are just getting their feet wet after hearing the buzz. Others were clearly early adopters.

It also gave me an opportunity to spread the word about the work my boss is doing with social media to engage more residents in government. Well worth the time and money spent.
