This was our first Let’s Create Event. We’ve have another one in the works for NOV and a more on the way. Check it out our latest one here.
What’s “Let’s Create”? It’s different things too different people, for Midwest Media Now it’s a chance to meet other content creators, new media movers and shakers and talk with a bunch of fun people that believe in the power of social media. We networked, showcased peoples works and made a couple shows like the one you’re getting ready to listen too right now.
In the show I also talk about new things we are going to add to the show in hopes of getting more people on the and be a part of the conversation. This is one way we can help Chicago and the Midwest stand out in New Media. There will be changes coming to the GUEST page so keep an eye out for that. It will explain whats happening and how you can be a part.
To learn more about Let’s Create go to this page. I’d encourage more people to participate and be apart of our efforts. You can be a Co-Host, Location Host or Volunteer. If you can think of something else by all means let one of us know, Midwest Media Now, Big Teeth Production, Beyond the Pedway or Fig Media know so you can do that. This is a grassroots effort to make things happen and grow an active new media community.
There’s a lot of stuff that came up so I just thought I’d list all the people I talked to and links to them and their projects so you could do some exploring yourself.
