Social Media Week 2012 - NYC
Something (else besides fashion week) is happening in NYC this week and you guessed it, we’re going! Social Media Week 2012 is here and the big guns from instagram, pitchfork, and mashable are ready to share ideas about how to create even better social experiences.
The event’s picked up a lot of momentum over the years, and word on the street is that this year will be the best yet (the event now spans 21 cities and boasts half a million attendees!)
After combing over the impressive list of talks and parties, we narrowed it down to a handful we think you’ll approve of. We’ve posted the details below, so if you’re in the area next week hit us up — we’d love to connect and share ideas.

Social Media & New Media in Travel & Tourism Promotion

Silicon Valley Meets Atlanta
(Video from San Francisco Appnation 2010)
Digital Atlanta is a week-long series of events and conferences independently held to celebrate technology and new media marketing achievements. Thanks to sponsoring from Atlanta’s Gigabark, Digital Atlanta was able to offer many sessions for free starting with Opening Keynote by Fizz CEO Ted Wright to kick off Digital Atlanta after Appnation comes to a close, creating the chance to bring the local tech community together for this amazing event. Atlanta has been working hard over the years to bring a stronger tech presence to the southeast, so the city’s involvement in APPNATION this year is really exciting. We’re proud to be part of the growing tech/startup scene here. We plan to be tweeting and blogging the event all week starting tomorrow morning with TBS’s Hack-a-Thon “Crank That App” at APPNATION.
Great Infographic of evolution of cell phones since the late ’70s until today. Exposure of the evolution of the industry and to society: the need and the amazing ability to communicate with a remote level handset to the Micro NetBooks, of our present.
As a bonus track: the “Making Of” of the Infographic counted and plotted by its author.
