September 25, 2011 Leave a comment

Nokia sponsored a wonderful time for us at Cinema Restaurant in Vancouver for Social Media Week Vancouver 2011

Tom Hall and Kathy Garfield welcomed us warmly to our fun filled evening!   Connecting with old friends like Daniel of Nokia Love blog and Shane Gibson made our time extra special!

Highlight of the evening was when our dear friend Miraj Khaled was the lucky winner of a fabulous Nokia N8 for being the eighth person to arrive at our tweetup!

Nokia truly connects people! We had a very memorable evening socializing with our friends :)

Thanks Nokia for sponsoring such a wonderful event during Social Media Week 2011 in Vancouver!

AHA NEDIA was pleased to be the Media Sponsor of the Vancouver Bloggers MeetUp at the St. Regis Bar and Grill in Vancouver May 28, 2009.

The Regis Room located downstairs at the St. Regis Grill is a very spacious, welcoming room. Food highlights of the evening included the huge plates of  Nachos in which many bloggers took multiple photos to remember.

 Chef  Gerry Kleinhout and his friendly kitchen staff  went beyond their normal duties to help secure a power cord for our tech tools to charge which was very much appreciated :)

ABSTRACT

Rules, Norms and Web 2.0: Etiquette in an Era of Evolutionary Social [Dis]Organization

Etiquette is frequently seen as a constraining set of behavioral rules, delineating what behaviors are appropriate within a certain social arena and which are not. But in a context of online multiverses, each with its own culture and demographic, what is truly the “right” thing, and how can we know it? Culture clashes and rapid evolution of social norms are ubiquitous in social media: why? What is appropriate etiquette? Is it portable across platforms? What are the ‘right’ kind of rules and norms in an unruly arena such as the online social media world? The participants in this panel will engage in a conversation about what constitutes etiquette, whether or not it relates to a moral imperative, whether it emerges as self-appointed leaders create specific sets of norms and discuss the evolution of etiquette in emergent social media. The implications for codes of behavior and etiquette in Web 2.0 are also discussed.

Many thanks to Chef Gerry Kleinhout’s own personal warm hospitality and attentive staff at the St Regis Bar and Grill helped to make a stress free and successful Vancouve Bloggers MeetUp.  

Below is a photo of Chef Gerry Kleinhout graciously giving  April Smith cheesecake after filming an informative evening of social media etiquette. The lucky folks who were able to sample the cheesecake remarked that it was very delicious!
