WHAT WE DO:

We gather around a big table and answer the questions:

- What are you doing?

- What do want to do?

- Do you need some help?

- You can ask questions too.

- Come with a prepared show and tell if you like.

UPDATED GROUP DESCRIPTION: Everyone is welcome!
This meeting started out with people who were working with audio and video on the web but over the years it has expanded to include podcasters, video bloggers, filmmakers, artists, actors, musicians, writers, programmers, news reporters, PR and social media people. We help people GET SEEN. ;-)

The BEST thing about this meeting is that everyone who attends, gets to meet everyone else.
