Six degrees of separation and April’s Social Media Breakfast #SMBDC speaker line-up

Have you registered for April Social Media Breakfast-DC yet? Don’t wait! There are only a few second wave tickets left. Third wave tickets are on sale NOW.

Since the topic of our April Breakfast is “Communities Connecting DC,” a quick game of Six Degree of Separation is in order. We used Asterisq to explore our speakers’ Twitter networks and discovered that they know a lot of the same people, use some of the same hashtags… as their networks get bigger, the world becomes smaller. Join us at Busboys and Poets (14th and V — U Street Metro) on April 12, 2010 at 8am to hear how our speakers are harnessing the power of people and social media to build bridges and make a difference.

Our speakers:

Jill Foster: Teaches communications through social media tools and community engagement in the Washington, DC area. Founder editor of Women Grow Business. Co-founder of DC Media Makers. Blogger at Live Your Talk. Named on by Forbes as one of 30 women entrepreneurs to follow on Twitter. Winner of the Social Citizen Award on how technology could help communities in Washington, DC.

Frank Gruber: Web product, entrepreneurship, social media, and emerging technologies expert, blogger, and keynote speaker.
