I have some cool news... Susan Getgood, who writes a great marketing blog and is a massive BSG fan, has convinced me to come out to the BlogWorld conference in Las Vegas this weekend and speak on a panel.
Here are the details. If any of you will be in town, please stop by!
Social Media & the Writers' Strike: Blogs, Fans & Community
Saturday, Sept. 20
2:45 PM - 3:45 PM, 230
This panel, the first of two sessions about Social Media and the Writers' Strike, will offer an overview of how the writers used social media during the strike to inform the public, encourage and reward fan support and keep union members motivated. We will focus on community-developed sites like United Hollywood and the impact of fan support as we discuss the overall impact of social media (vs. mainstream media) on the outcome.

Susan has another WGA strike-related panel later that day at 5pm, see here for details.
