Media Slog: BIG CROWD AT THE SOCIAL MEDIA BREAKFAST SMB3

Sebastien Deschamps told everyone about his new expat search engine called Interexpat, an edited search engine for foreigners living outside of their home country.

I had a fairly long conversation with Andrew Peters, a marketing and PR consultant who works on a variety of tech projects and corporate blogs.

Todd Murray is an Australian who was plugging a new internet television web startup called Activechannel.

Privacy – who needs it in social media & virtual worlds – itsReal

Apparently IBM and 14 other partners think so… i just spent a weekend at the social media breakfast letting people come out from behind their online persona’s and connect in the real world – hmmm I guess IBM is just focusing on the REAL issues like identity theft – read on about their PrimeLife project, it has a mere 10 million Euros of funding…

Working with 14 partners in Europe, IBM will work on the three-year project, called PrimeLife, from its lab in Zurich. Privacy experts say the program will focus on individuals managing their identity across social networks and other online communities

Responding to the rise in adoption of social networks, virtual worlds and other Web 2.0 technologies, IBM has launched a project to create tools to help people manage their privacy and identity on the Web, taking a stab at what could become one of the most pressing issues in online collaboration and data sharing.

Innovation – Passion – is Singapore Alone – itsReal

CoSpace Yebber Geek Terminal ping.sg twinity recruit.net social media breakfast TheMediaSlut HypoCol Wellness Community  TDM

It is hard to believe that I packed in SO much into the 168 hours I had available last week. Forget about sleep – well almost. There is a buzz in Singapore and the 9 identified keywords – tags above are just a fraction of things that were revolving around APLINK  last week. Is this only happening in Singapore – I doubt it very much.

What is not able to be said here is even more astounding as to the level of opportunities and possibilities that are emerging daily – Singapore being the HUB for all this activity.

As a run down of last week, CoSpace was launched – wow, yebber turned ONE and held a unique and BINGOMATIC event at the Mint Toy Museum – thanks for the WebCam from the lucky draw, Geek Terminal becomes even more of a hub for entrepreneurs, ping.sg climbs the Alexa Rankings, twinity new T-shirt design launches and gets a public audience – watch out for MEETME when walking around Singapore – recruit.net books into facebook – the Media Slut – well she just keeps getting more evil, My client Hypocol doubles international online sales through Social Media Programs and takes its first bite of virtual worlds – TDM kicks off events planning – and finally the Social Media Breakfast – we crawled out of bed to reach the venue at around 9am – it was funny as NO agenda was set – we were given a “tagging” kit and the rest was up to us – from the video – you can see that the 40 or so managed to tag and get to know each other – i think i got across my waking and dreaming passion virtual worlds proposition.

Today is an appointment free day – my business partner is packing for New York to see what APLINK might be able to do to  share across the US how Innovative and Passionate Singapore is about social media, virtual worlds and business – hmmm one day in the very near future.
