Social Media 4 Nonprofits: The Recap

Holy cow! A social media conference in my own backyard: Dallas!

Here’s the deal: To Dallasites, we love our city. We rag on the weather, the sixty-thousand-dollar-millionaires and trophy wives, but deep down we think we’re awesome.

  1. Dallas is the home to the first two seasons of Halt & Catch Fire – also the tech boom of the 80s.
  2. You may see Erykah Badu… naked… walking down the street. Because that’s normal.
  3. Two airports and lots of flights in case you need to get out of town quickly.
  4. You’ve heard everything is bigger in Texas? What is a 200 sq. ft. rental in San Francisco, is a 4,000 sq. ft. mortgage in Dallas.
  5. One (compound) word: Tex-Mex.

So when something about tech happens in my hometown, I must be involved.

Social Media 4 Nonprofits hosted a conference today. About Social Media. For Nonprofits.

Apparently, this is what I look like when I speak.
