Social Media Club Birmingham Meeting
Thursday January 21, 2010 from 11:30am - 1:00pm

Shift Workspace
2308 2nd Avenue North
Birmingham, Alabama 35203

PLEASE RSVP IN ONE PLACE ONLY, either on Upcoming http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/5243697/
or on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=24845919449 .

Bring your own lunch if you wish to munch (a good idea since the
subject will make you hungry).

One of the hottest topics on the Web is food. And there is nothing
more social than food. Put social media and food together and what do
you get? Foodimentary! Don't miss January's presentation by The
Foodimentary Guy, John-Bryan Hopkins. Hopkins (at my last count) has
no fewer than 15 different microblogs/blogs, many of which have
impressive traffic and engagement. How does he do it? Join us to find
out his secrets to online success.

From Wikipedia:
Foodimentary is an online entity that unites foodies across the world.
The Foodimentary philosophy is one of eating well to live well, but in
a relaxed atmosphere that is different from that of the gourmet or the
uptight nutritionist. Good local eating, quality ingredients, health
tips, and fun facts are the substance of Foodimentary's many online
expressions. It began as a twitter page which quickly grew and is now
upwards of 90,000 members. Foodimentary was also the first-time user
of a few twitter hash tags including #dailyquote and #todaynfood. The
twitter page recently won a shorty award in the #food category.
