Blogging singer Genie sharing what tickles her fancy at Blogout
Just came back from Blogout which was a big social media bash at Geek Terminal attended by (who else) 2.0 geeks and celeb bloggers galore! The night was certainly interesting, with a veritable who’s who in the blogging scene making their appearances including Tomorrow.sg’s founder James Seng, STOMP’s editor Jennifer Lewis, Ping.sg’s creator Uzyn, Moblog’s originator Yoke Chin, Global Voices’ Preetam Rai, Kevin Lim of Theory Is The Reason and lots more members of the blogerati.
I certainly had fun moderating the panel discussion which talked about “A New Voice”, though it did go a little chaotic at times. My conclusion was that the crowd seemed to have more fun chatting with each other! Well, I guess that’s the spirit of the whole 2.0 movement, where EVERYBODY participates in the conversation. It’s “All Star Anything Goes” (for those old enough to remember that celebrity slugfest).
A special treat for the evening was having upcoming blogging singer Genie treating us to a music video of hers, hottest mummy contestant eastcoastlife sharing what makes her so special, and also hearing from celebrity STOMP blogger Joe Augustin. Nice to also know that we have upcoming technopreneurs in Singapore making their mark in the web 2.0 universe. Finally, it was great to meet Veron, DK and Dr Leslie Tay of I Eat I Shoot I Post fame, all big-time bloggers in their own right.
Special kudos go to Estee for the fabulous organising and professional emceeing of this event, as well as other digital movers like Ming Yeow, Su Yuen, Swathi, Chern Jie and all the other hardworking folks at The Digital Movement who made this possible.
Walter: thanks for your kind words! You can’t shake us off so easy… TDM pretty much is going to “snatch” you!
Nice meeting you too. 🙂
Sounds a great impact-ful and fun event. Have more fun 😀
Hey Walter, nice seeing you at the event. U sure did a great job moderating the panel, tho we’re really sorry about the sound system. Catch up with you next time!
Thanks. Do you have such get togethers in California? Probably bigger affairs I am sure.
I think you guys deserve it for putting together fairly complex events! TDM is certainly going places and now even the mainstream media seems hooked. Cool.
It is a waste that I missed it due to reservist. Else will be great to catch up with you again.
You did a good job!
What a shame I didn’t get to meet more bloggers, there were so many distractions, hahaha…..
Aaawww i wanna join!!! Grrr!! Hehehe!! I’m still waiting for a bloggers get-together so I can meet my fellow bloggers!
bummer bummer..guess I did miss out on something big…erm..anything like this coming soon?
Reservist is always such a pain isn’t it? Mine is coming up in end September…. sigh… hope its the last one! About time already!
Thanks and its my pleasure to meet you too! No prob with the sound system though I found it amusing when Joe helped me to remove the wireless from sight… haha… He is a perfectionist when it comes to sound engineering you know.
Thanks for your compliments. I think you were definitely one of the stars that evening too, in the running for hottest mummy blogger. Blog on mama!
Will be happy to keep you in the loop. I think TDM will probably want to rope me in to help them promote their upcoming events.
Great to meet you at last in person!
They have but I missed the last one… waiting for any upcoming bloggers get together!
