    Hey gang,

    I just wanted to invite EVERYONE to come to a presentation I am doing at DEMA for SDI/TDI. It's open to everyone, even if you aren't an instructor for these fine people. It's entitled "Staying Connected" and I plan to discuss how to prosper using social networking and media (including ScubaBoard). This will be especially applicable for Shops, Resorts, Manufacturers, Agencies and everyone who owns a computer connected to the Internet. This means YOU.

    When: Wednesday, Nov 17, 2010 @4:00pm
    Where: Room S212 (SDI/TDI)
    What: "Staying Connected" A primer on Social Media and Networking.

    Here is a rough outline for what I am covering.

    Social Networking
    ....Definition & Relevance
    ....Major Players
    ....Finding your niche

    Facebook/MySpace
    ....How to get started
    ....What to do
    ....Pitfalls to avoid!!!

    Twitter
    ....Integration is Key

    Forums
    ....Tribal Mentality
    ....How to get started
    ....Social Integration
    ....Putting your Sig Line to work
    ....Less is best
    ....Recruiting Fans (Online Advocates)
    ....Turning negative reviews into GOLD
    ....Handling Point Of View Warriors (InterZealots)
    ....Why and why not to Advertise (Not an infomercial)
    ....Pitfalls to avoid
    ....Starting your own forum

    Outside of the Box
    ....Press Releases

    If I missed something that YOU want covered, please don't hesitate to ask for it.

    Pete -- assuming you will have this as a PPT presentation, would you be willing to post it after your present? I'm involved with another organization and it sounds like your presentation would be appropriate to present to it.

    We can't attend this year, but your presentation topic sounds fantastic. I'm looking forward to getting a copy of the PPT once its online. Is there any possibility of filming the presentation and putting it on youtube? Would be great to see the whole thing and hear the nuggets that aren't contained in a powerpoint.
