Our October event is sponsored by FutureMedia Fest, which is one of the most comprehensive new media/technology conferences in town. Thanks to their generosity, we will have plenty of free appetizers available.
We will be meeting at one of our favorite places, Ormsby’s, a cool speakeasy in the West End, not far from Georgia Tech. We’ll be in one of their basement rooms, probably near the bocce court.
As always, we will start at 5pm, and will go until 9:30ish.
Georgia Tech’s FutureMedia Fest – the must-attend event exploring media’s disruptive power on people and business – is just around the corner! Speakers include:
Joel Lunenfeld, Director of Global Brand Strategy, Twitter
Dan Darling, CIO, Turner Broadcasting System
Bill Hoffman, Executive Vice President, Cox Media Group
Matthew Hong, Vice President and GM, Turner Sports

Michael Tavani, Co-Founder, Scoutmob
Trish Jones, Chief Emerging Technologies Officer, Turner
Catherine Jamal, Social Media and Website User Experience, CDC
