My First Social Media Discussion Panel!

I’ve been invited to IDC’s conference: IDC’s Asia/Pacific Directions 2008
“Tech X.0: Mastering New Business Models and Markets”
at the Grand Copthorne this Friday. It’s a full day conference talking about various aspects of Web2.0 and the lineup looks pretty interesting.

The panel I’ll be present at is at 3:30pm, called Generation Y and the Emerging Power of User-generated Content

What makes younger generations tick? How do you reach them as a company and why is self-expression in the form of user-generated content becoming so important to today’s Internet generation?
Claus Mortensen moderates a panel of prominent young bloggers from around the Asia/Pacific region to get their perspective on these issues and more. This panel will give the audience a great opportunity to understand what motivates today’s “Generation Y”.

The other panelists are Kenny Sia, The Compulsive Confessor and Hong Kong Phooey.

Tickets to the whole conference are available (and a little expensive), but I think businesses can definitely benefit from it. But for those of us who don’t otherwise have the money to spend, there’ll be a live webcast where you can ask questions to the panel. (Please don’t ask some killer question, ok?)

Quite a big honour to be invited to the panel since my presence in the social media world is probably about 100 days. Hope it’ll be a great experience!

    @Estee, @Nadnut, @Missy: Definitely! thanks for the support =)

    @Benjamin: Yes I think blogging is definitely one plus that every company should undertake. Though MediaSlut does have good points about it taking time (both to catch on and for the company to dedicate to blogging)
