Next week it will be held an important event for Social Media. Nine cities will host simultaneously The Social Media Week : from New York to Rome, San Francisco, Paris, Hong Kong, Toronto, London, Istanbul, Sao Paulo.
Every city has its onw agenda, hundreds of people involved in free meeting and conferences.
I think it would be useful to attend some events also if you are in a different country. In my experience, even if we rightly consider the Net as a whole, there are many differences between countries, as for culture, technology, development.
So if you are in Rome … I suggest to not miss Colosseum, but also some Social Week’s events!
