A media industry that plays together, stays together

Both traditional and social media juggernauts will be very well catered for in the coming days and weeks, with the inaugural Auckland Social Media Club event taking place on Tuesday 9 February at the 42 Below Bar and the next Media Mingle set for 23 February at Honey Bar.

Register for the next Media Mingle event, which will be held on the roof terrace of Honey Bar, 5 O'Connell Street, on the website. And while you're there, check out the handy new 140 character or less dissemination tool that's recently been added. The brainchild of Alex Erasmus, one of the two Bullet PR men responsible for setting up Media Mingle and also one of the main protagonists of the Social Media Club, the new Tweetstream of Kiwi media personalities enables visitors to keep tabs on their latest musings.

While lists are available on Twitter, he says most Twats don't use them. So he has taken the liberty of creating a tailor-made network that constantly updates with inane, but mostly ane, chatter (click here for a hilarious compendium of non-opposable words).

As for the Social Media Club, the inaugural shindig will take place at 6pm on 9 February at the 42 Below bar on Commerce St. It's a free, first-come, first-served event with space for around 150 people, but there will be a registration process for future events. Jayson Bryant of the Wine Vault will give a 15-20 minute speech about video blogging.
