Media Tech Tonic #6: Social Networking for Artists, Designers, and Creative Professionals
November 19, 2008
from the Media Tech Tonic site:
Everyone can network, and in today’s competitive marketplace, it has become an essential competency for everyone. One challenge in becoming more effective in networking is coming up with your own style and learning how to use the best of both F2F (face to face) and web-based tools. This session is intended for artists, designers, and other creative professionals as well as designers who are working on tools to either map social interactions or help bring people together in meaningful ways.
Our presenter this month is Diane Darling, an experienced networking consultant. She will share her insights on how creative professionals that work independently can hone and improve their networking skills. She’ll cover a range of both inter-personal and web-based tools that she uses herself.
Free and open to the public. Visit mediatechtonic.org for more information.
