Theme for the second Social Media Breakfast: Government 2.0 (how utilities, organizations for the environment, and more work with and from municipalities and other entities using social media to achieve goals)

The second Social Media Breakfast NH (hashtag #smbnh) will be all about topics related to Government 2.0. In this struggling economy and shifting paradigm we need to be working together to be more successful and better weather the storm. We should be pulling in all aspects of technology, new media, old media and social media to succeed. This meeting will help us lay the foundation for a richer, better education, tech and new media community in NH.

In addition to myself, who will be your host and MC for the morning, you will have three speakers giving three brief presentations on topics relating to the theme for the morning.

Electric Tweets‘ – Why @psnh followers increased 1,700% in one week Public Service of New Hampshire’s Martin Murray will discuss the electric utility’s use of Twitter and other social media.

Boston Police Department is sending John Daley to discuss their web outreach efforts via Twitter and other new media.

Now or Never Media‘s Bill Rogers and his partners in clean air initiatives will discuss how they use social media to get the word out and reach out to municipalities for change.

Guest Post on Technosailor, SXSW Panel Up for Vote

I was privileged to write a guest post for Aaron Brazell of Technosailor for his Green Tech blogging week. There were so many great guest posters – be sure to go over and check us all out and weigh in on Green Tech issues. My post is on the hidden human cost of government forcing citizens to go green before giving them access to the tools they need to survive the change.

I’m also nervous. I have always wanted to present at SXSW, and this year I finally bit the bullet and submitted a panel idea for SXSW 2009. If you are a member of the SXSW community, and you’d like to hear a panel on “Can Social Media Save The World?” offering concrete solutions to real world problems using social media, please go vote it up. Voting is open until August 29th, 2008.

I have several posts and reviews on the way for Uptown Uncorked this weekend as well, and also will be at NH Media Makers on Sunday if you want to talk about social media with me in person (sorry to have to miss TechSet, Boston. I need two of me sometimes, I swear.)

Also, in the spirit of housekeeping, I don’t mind getting pitched by PR people, it’s your job after all (we’ve been getting a lot of pitches this week), just please make sure it is social media relevant. Hey, I can dream, right? The email for PR pitches and other press contacts is here.
