Six months ago I dove in.
Had my toe in previously, on Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin, but the time had come to dive in to digital media.
I’ve been going to so many media, social media, digital media seminars and panels that I’m seeing more of Rachel Sklar than I am of my wife…Personal Democracy Forum, Mediabistro Circus, social media week, Internet week, television week, Sobel Media seminars, PR week, Web 2.0 Expo, Web TV Toolbox, NY Biz Expo, NYTV Meet-up, PR Camp, and many more on and off the NYC media grid.
I dove into a sea of words–buzzwords, jargon, words of art, acronyms, tech terms, elegantly descriptive coinages, and just wee bit of bafflegab.
I’ve been tweeting them along the way, but here are a few, mixed-in with a few other #WordsHeard along the way:
