Boston Makers Meeting Report, SUNDAY, January 4, 2015

Next Boston Media Makers meeting, SUNDAY, February 1, 2015.

Brilliant video recap by Bruce K Garber combining photos, videos and snapchat content:

Yes. It was the usual, plus ‘‘what are your resolutions for 2015″ type of day. Some people like to choose Three Words.

Chris Brogan explains it:
Every year, I go through an exercise where we take three words and use them as the central focus of your goals and efforts for the year to come. Instead of saying “I want to lose 30 pounds” and then forgetting about the goal a day later, I might have something like “green” that reminds me to eat more plant-based foods at every meal, or similar.

The idea is that the words you choose will go past being a simple goal and will become part of the way you identify yourself, and thus, a guiding light for your efforts.

Here are some examples from members: Chris Brogan 2014 and 2015, CC Chapman 2014 and 2015, Jeff Cutler 2013, and me 2014 and 2015.

Kicking off our 10th Year! The special speaker is everyone!

SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER:  EVERYONE!

Join us as we embark of our 10th year!

Read about a previous meeting in this great Jamaica Plain news article by Chris Helms.

ABOUT US:

Boston Media Makers is a monthly meet-up for media enthusiasts in the Greater Boston Area. We are social media enthusiasts, filmmakers, journalists, web geeks, technologists, designers, artists, entrepreneurs, and people just wanting to learn more about making and distributing media online. Come talk shop and share current projects. The guest presenter is YOU. Everyone gets three minutes to share, pitch, promote, or ask questions. We learn, get inspired, and collaborate. Hosted by Steve Garfield.

 

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.

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.

I love how it has expanded. Every month is a new experience with both returning friends and new attendees.
