Since I started working with Annie (who totally rocks, by the way) on this project, I’ve managed to swing the format into a hybrid format of “Unconference” presenter/breakout session format and Open Grid Sessions, not unlike the hybrid barcamp event Web2.Open.
The reason? I (and Annie, of course) see this as a platform for generating awareness in Philly about what is going on in the realm of social media, blogging, collaboration, and all of those juicy things you may have noticed that I get myself wrapped up in. This means that YOU.
Do you live in Philly and do something related to social media, web marketing, innovation, creativity, or any of the above? BlogPhiladelphia could be an opportunity for you to show the world that you’re here and you’re doing awesome stuff.
On the flip side, if you aren’t from Philly, this is going to be the weekend to come check us out.
Already on the roster for presentations and session leaders are:
- Josh Hallet, founder, BlogOrlando, hyku.com/blog
- David Parmet, public relations expert, parmet.net/pr
- Joey Sweeney, CEO, Philebrity Brands, (philebrity.com and philebrity.tv)
- Maura Johnston, associate editor, idolator.com
- Howard Greenstein, Social Media Consultant and co-founder Social Media Club, www.howardgreenstein.com
- Dave Coustan, Blog Master at EarthLink, http://blogs.earthlink.net

- oh yeah…and me!
