We’ve also been equally puzzled by our Society’s social media strategy — or lack thereof – and the frightening lack of a sustainable, long-term business model for NGS. (See this and this and this and especially this.)
Which is why we’re very excited about this upcoming event on Tuesday, June 15, 2010, at 9:30am @ National Geographic headquarters. It’s part of Media 2.0 Day, which is part of Digital Capital Week.
The main event for us: “Social and Traditional Media: How News and Media Organizations are Getting Social and Why They Need To Do It.” Two of the featured speakers: Andy Carvin of NPR & Robert Michael Murray of National Geographic.
You should join us. It’ll be a study in contrasts, and, if moderator Carlos Roig knows his stuff, a lively debate.
It’s also free when you register here — though this particular match-up could easily have been turned into a pay-per-view event.
