Third Tuesday Toronto announces…

Dr. Tony Hung, of Deep Jive Interests and The Blog Herald for June 19, 2007.

Here at TTT command we’ve come up with another fantastic speaker with something really interesting to say and real value to add to our PR and social media educational series.

Tony Hung is the indefatigable technology blogger who takes on, among other topics, the perceived A-list, payola blogging and, most pertinent to our upcoming discussion, the role of social news sites such as Digg, reddit and Netscape. Along with writing the excellent Deep Jive Interests (a must read in my feed reader), he is also my *former* editor at The Blog Herald AND studying for his residency in internal medicine AND a new father. Wow.

As the Public Relations industry struggles to come to terms with the entire gamut of well worn social media paths from client to audience, social news sites probably attract the least interest. Which is ironic considering the susceptibility of these communities to well organised campaigns – something Tony has written extensively about.

So, if you’re interested in getting the sort of traffic that front page placement on Digg can bring your client and curious about the ethical implications of buying such a placement head on over to the Third Tuesday Toronto Meet up page and register.

I would traditionally sign off with a cheery “see you there!” but, alas, after hounding Tony for months to do this for us, I’ll be in Calgary singing the Aliyot and getting married that week.
