OCTOBER 2

Boston Media Makers Report, SUNDAY DECEMBER 6th, 2015.

Next Boston Media Makers meeting, SUNDAY JANUARY 3rd, 2015. 10 AM at Doyle’s Cafe in Jamaica Plain, MA.

Thanks for Bruce Garber for hosting in December.

Here’s the video roll call:

A special message for you from our friend Dave Bolton @SandManDave . He’s moving.

Join us in 2016.

We connect people who’d benefit from knowing each other.

We’ve been meeting for 10 years and every meeting is different. It’s exciting to arrive and find new people who are there to share their story and hear about others. This group is unlike any other because everyone gets to meet everyone else in a laid back environment.

Join us if you are creative, or interested in learning about new things. Some topics that people have recently shared include self publishing on Amazon.com, new ways to shoot and share video, and pointers to interesting events happening around Boston.

There’s no need to register. See you in DECEMBER?

Here’s a brilliant video recap of a recent meeting, by Bruce K Garber combining photos, videos and snapchat content:

Join us as we close out our 10th year!
