My RIoT Storify Recap

How Social Is Your TV?

a Triangle Social Media Club panel, recap by Brian McDonald on Square Jaw Media

At the February Triangle Social Media Club event I had my eyes opened to the world of “social TV.”  The speakers were Gregory Ng (@gregoryng), Tim Arthur (@timarthur), Damond Nollan (@damondnollan) and the MC was Ryan Boyles (@therab).  The panel showed what their entertainment centers consisted of, their top 5 shows and one guilty pleasure as well as shared insights, wants and desires of social TV.

BREAKING: Barcamp RDU 2010 is a great day for developers of all stripes! (via irab)

Interesting to note: This video, and the photos contained within, was shot and edited entirely on my iPhone 4. Pretty cool. I would like to see more themes made available for iMovie on the iPhone.

For a recap, see my blog post Barcamp RDU 2010 afterword. I’m drafting a blog post about the QR Code talk also. View a photo slideshow from the annual developers event, held for the last 5 years at RedHat on NCSU Centennial Campus.
