Just over a week ago, I attended a wonderful Aditi event for their customers. Pradeep had an all-star guest list, one of whom was the new CEO of WSA -- Ken Meyer. I started talking with Ken and when he heard a little about Others Online, he asked me my thoughts on the future of social media. Well hell, I've got a lot of thoughts, and managed to belt out a good 30 seconds worth, at which point he asked if I would speak at their next WSA Dinner Meeting. So it looks like I'm on the agenda! I understand the attendance is promising to be strong (not because of me, I can assure you).
I was also pleasantly surprised to see Wassef Harroun at the Aditi event, who is working with Paul Maritz at Pi. I hadn't seen Wassef since Paris, and I'd only met him once -- at a party in December 2004. He and a couple ex-Microsoft guys started the company which became PeopleOnPage, which then became 121Media. He had left the company before I arrived. Pi is working on some very interesting stuff.
