Connie Crosby Update: February 15, 2010

Connie Crosby Update: February 15, 2010 from Connie Crosby on Vimeo.

Some of my mentions in this episode:
  • ChangeCamp meeting in Toronto on Tuesday, February 16, 2010 working on a civic engagement toolkit. While the session is full for participants, we are looking for volunteers to act as scribes as I mention in the video. If you have a laptop with good battery and would like to join me in liveblogging at a table via Scribblelive.com feel free to contact me and I will pass your name along. Scribes show up at 4 pm, and the show gets underway around 5:30 or 6:00 pm. I mention one of the people leading us in the evening, Mark Kuznicki, who inspires me to do more in leading and connecting people.
  • PodCamp Toronto - will you be joining us? February 20 & 21, 2010 at Ryerson's Rogers Communication Centre.  The Schedule is now live so that presenters may add their sessions in.
  • Personal Brand Camp 2 - an event including Humber PR students learning about social media and how to build an online presence. I am giving Michael Cayley a hand with this. This event will be held in conjunction with Third Tuesday Toronto on February 23, 2010, a speaker series about social media for the PR industry, courtesy of Joseph Thornley. Our speaker for the evening will be Mitch Joel on (what else?) personal brand.
  • Ontario Library Association's OLA Superconference, February 24-27, 2010. Look for me at the Knowledge Ontario booth where I will be helping out periodically.
  • Over on Slaw.ca I usually post every Monday. This week's post:  Google Buzz Already Raising Privacy Concerns.
And did I mention my book? No? I've been proofreading the final proofs! We're almost ready for the printer!

Big Swag & Mixed Feelings

I received some big promotional swag today from a major U.S. legal publisher, Thomson Reuters Legal, for the launch of their new product WestlawNext. I share my thoughts on it in this video.

See Sarah Glassmeyer's blog post On Vendor Swag which she posted today on this topic as well.

Feb. 2nd update: I should have included a link back to Simon Chester's blog post on The Future of Westlaw over on Slaw.ca. He was one of the group who went to Eagan, Minnesota to preview the new product, and he has been tracking some of the conversations that came out of that visit.
