Well, the Holiday crush is over and it is time to look ahead to the new year and how Florida Creatives will be one of the hottest things to hit Orlando since DMAC (if you don't count this little thing called The Red Chair Project, or CityArts Factory of course).
Florida Creatives » Blog Archive » Florida Creatives Happy Hour - Dec 18th
The first post here on Florida Creatives will be to announce our first networking event! One of the goals of this podcast is to serve the community of entrepreneurs, filmmakers, thespians, bloggers and podcasters, artists, designers, architects - all are welcome at this event. The goal is to start a discussion amongst these groups and stir things up in Florida.
Josh Hallet knows. He's the guy who put together what I might go out on a limb as saying "Orlando's First Unconference", BlogOrlando.
Over on Josh's blog he's been posting what he's learned at the American Marketing Association's MPlanet conference. If you are involved with marketing, own a business or run a website, Josh's blog will be very beneficial to you.
If you haven't heard of lonelygirl15, what digital rock have you been hiding under lately? If you don't know she's fake - sorry, but it's true. This article in WiRED magazine tells the whole story, as well as really hitting a sweet chord for aspiring internet media producers such as myself. Oh, and it also says 'NUTS' to a friend of mine who says "people will never watch content on mobile phones". That's right. Nuts to you!
Every once in a while I click on a Google Ad or two, because I'm interested in supporting web sites I read and there are sometimes pretty cool products and services on the other end. One example is Squarespace, a Manhattan-based software company that makes a pretty decent looking tool for making a website. I don't really see this as an option for casual users since there are so many free alternatives around, but for power users, businesses, marketers and people who don't want to buy "web hosting" this looks like a good alternative.
