I took the picture at left yesterday near the hotel. It is called "Passage" by Dan Das Mann and Karen Cusolito. It is being installed on the Embarcadero near the Bay Bridge in San Fran. A project of the Black Rock Arts Foundation.
This will be a crazy week, three nights in San Fran, then OKC for one night to give a talk, and then on to Little Rock Arkansas for another one. I promise not to say anything about Wal-Mart. Hmmm. Specifics after the jump.
The OKC PR event is:
The Oklahoma City Public Relations Society of American (PRSA) chapter is hosting a Professional Development Day focusing on the latest trends in online communication.
Entitled ‘Public Relations Fully Loaded: Managing Media in the Next Generation‘,
the development day will feature several career enrichment sessions on
hot topics such as blogging, RSS and other online tools.
Ed Schipul, CEO of Schipul – The Web Marketing Company, will provide the lunchtime session’s presentation ‘The Public in the Machine – Using the Latest Online Tools that Put PR in the Driver’s Seat!‘.
PR technology-focused session will cover the basics of new online tools
and focus on how today’s PR challenges are being met by the new tools
and new role of PR practitioners.
and in Little Rock it is:
The Arkansas chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) will feature Ed Schipul, CEO of Schipul – The Web Marketing Company, at their monthly meeting on June 16th as keynote speaker.
The presentation, entitled “Trends in Public Relations Technology: Harnessing the Chaos to Encourage Collaboration and Engagement"
will provide Arkansas PRSA attendees with a current look at the ways PR
professionals can adopt the latest online technologies to communicate
quickly and effectively.
If you are one of the 21 people who read this blog, and happen to be in those locations, I’d love to see you. Seems unlikely. Which of course why blogging is a bit like talking to yourself. Am I interesting? Hmmm.
