Now in its sixth year, the SoMe Awards—one of the premier events recognizing social media efforts—has expanded its Portland-based event to include both a little education and a little entertainment for the social media minded. The 2014 SoMe Awards includes the SoMe Forum, an afternoon of discussions with social media thought leaders. Read More
When it comes to social media, many things are fleeting. Twitter and Facebook stream by. And moments that, at first, seem entirely unforgettable vanish in an instant. Never to be seen again. Like tears in the rain…
Wait a second. WTF?
Sorry, I must be all blissed out from listening to this little ditty. Read More
It’s okay. I know you’ve been busy. But let’s face it, you’re awesome. And people need to experience that awesomeness. And there are two very good venues for your share that awesomeness. But you have to act fast.
It’s Thursday. And that means it’s time for another episode of memePDX (@memePDX), where we cover the hottest tech stories in Portland and beyond.
This week, Cami Kaos (@camikaos) and I (@turoczy) talk about the Portland Development Commission (PDC) software cluster survey, Beer and Blog with the Timbers, InnoTech and the SoMe Awards, Apple moving 1 million iPads, and TechCrunch’s Michael Arrington moving to Seattle. Read More
It’s starting Portland. Our usual packed summer of tech events and camps that bring even more awesome people into town to share their ideas and concepts with the awesome people—like you—who call Portland home.
And every year, one of the first events out of the gates is InnoTech, the premier technology event for business folks in the Portland area. Thinking about going? Well you better get on that. It starts tomorrow, May 6. Read More
Well we had a little bit of a mystery going on ourselves tonight in the world of the Portland, Oregon, social media scene that needed some solving:
And the finalists are:
[UPDATE] Whoa whoa whoa. Not so fast. Hold your horses, there’s been a little recount due to some dangling chads. The list of nominees below has been retooled a tad.
Next big thing
On Thursday, April 23, one winner from each group will be selected—based on their “originality, effectiveness and creativity”—as the inaugural recipients of the award.
Cost of attendance is $15 and space is limited. No word on whether the event will be streamed.
For more on the event, visit the SoMe Awards.
Hey! Wow! Look at him now! It’s Zuckerman’s famous….
Oh wait. Sorry all that talk of “some awards” and social media—and who knows probably bacon—got me in the wrong frame of mind.
Let’s get back on track, shall we? We shall.
What are the SoMe Awards, you ask?
The Social Media Club of Portland, SEMpdx, the Software Association of Oregon (SAO), and InnoTech have joined forces to launch “SoMe Awards: Your Social Media Awards,” an award designed to recognize “outstanding social media projects and the people who created them.”
Categories include Superstar, House Party, Next Big Thing, Scrappy, Sugar Daddy, Bloviater, and Wildcard.
The event will be held on the evening of April 23 at Candy at 904 NW Couch (for the life of me, I couldn’t find a Web site for this joint). What’s that mean? That’s right. No social media award for them.
Cost? Admission will run you $15. But that gets you two drink tickets and some stuff on which to nom.
Interested? Act fast. There’s only room to wedge 230 folks in there—and no doubt word of the event is going to be proliferated through that-there social media—so please register for the SoMe Awards ceremony as soon as you can.
Wait a sec. Who got nominated? That’s forthcoming. When I know, you’ll know.
