Converging in October

Want a peek at what your world looks like today and how it will change by the time you read this post?

Look no further than a video format inspired by a Colorado high school teacher. In the fall of 2006, Karl Fisch felt the need to explain the shift to faculty and students and wound up posting his research on his personal blog where it was subsequently updated by other on-line contributors.

Here is "Did You Know?" 4.0.

The City of Moncton, NB is wasting no time jumping on the "Did You Know?" bandwagon.

Named as one of the 2009 Top 7 Intelligent Communities in the world, the City of Moncton is now presenting the first-ever Intelligent Communities Summit at the Delta Beausejour October 5-7.

High profile speakers and panelists from around the world have confirmed their participation, including a key member of the Barack Obama social media team who helped turn the battle cry of "Yes We Can" to "Yes We Did". Ms. Rahaf Harfoush will be the Keynote Speaker at the Wednesday luncheon on Wednesday, October 7th sharing insights from the Obama social media strategy and how online communities elected the first "digital" president.

Rahaf has a compelling story to share.

And so do some other highly acclaimed folks at the Intelligent Communities Summit, converging in early October.

“Social Networking that matters is helping people achieve their goals. Doing it reliably and repeatably so that over time people have an interest in helping you achieve your goals”
