News, Gigs, Events, Jobs and More for 3/7/2012

Public Service Announcement: After the recent tornado outbreak across the Midwest, the Red Cross could really use your help.

Had a really great time last Thursday night moderating the panel discussion on using social media in your job search as well as as a recruiter looking to hire people.  A side effect of that, from the radio gig last Wednesday, was the publishing of Ivory Tower Syndrome: Social Media, Stalkers and You.

Just as a reminder, we’re two weeks out from our next event.  Not next week.  Two weeks.  March 22nd, Royal Oak, Blackfinn, back room, 5:01pm start time.  There are a few other noteworthy events coming up as well…so I guess let’s go ahead hit the details on everything…

As always, we start with the reminder of our next event.  Thursday, March 22nd at the BlackFinn in Royal Oak, back room, 5:01pm start time.  I know we usually try to stick with the third Thursday, but that never really works out well in March…as those of you who have been around for a while know.  So, we just avoid the whole March Madness and St Patrick’s Day insanity by skipping a week.  We’re actually being fairly on top of things this year, believe it or not.  So far, we’re booked out quite a ways with the following events…

(note: details on our events are always available on our site here: http://www.ITinTheD.com/meet/)

Thursday, March 22nd.  Casual networking.  BlackFinn, Royal Oak:  http://linkd.in/w31RMT

Thursday, April 19th.  Casual networking.  Tipsy McStaggers, Warren: http://linkd.in/A0x8N0

Thursday, May 17th.  Casual networking, The Legal Eagle Edition. BlackFinn, Royal Oak: http://linkd.in/wTtPR7

Thursday, June 21st. The Return of the Pink Slip Party.  Woody’s, Royal Oak: http://linkd.in/zZ6XhJ

We really look forward to seeing you at one, two, or hopefully all of those.

As I mentioned in the opening, with the recent tornado outbreaks across the Midwest, the Red Cross could seriously use some help: http://www.ITinTheD.com/3214/red-cross-needs-help-after-tornado-outbreak/

In lighter news, thanks again to Sola for inviting me to moderate last week’s panel discussion on social media and jobs.  Looking forward to doing more in the future.  Had a good time with the crowd and the panel, and really enjoyed the conversations after the panel wrapped.  And that’s all I’m saying.  Nothing else happened.  At all.  There certainly wasn’t any tequila involved at any point in time during the evening…

ANYWAY…as also mentioned earlier, I wound up on WDET with two of the panelists last Wednesday morning.  If you’re interested, the podcast can be found here – http://www.ITinTheD.com/3187/wdet-1019-radio-02-29-2012/ – and a question that came in was about using social media when it scares the hell out of you because you have a stalker.  Well, that led to writing Ivory Tower Syndrome – Social Media, Stalkers, and You out at http://www.ITinTheD.com/3198/ivory-tower-syndrome-social-media-stalkers-and-you/  Give it a read, would love feedback or additions to it.

As a quick note about some other upcoming events in the area:

Agile and Beyond is sold out and taking place this Saturday

Day of Azure is nearly sold out, and takes place on Saturday the 24th: http://dayofazure.eventbrite.com/

MobiDevDay is coming on May 19th, and tickets can be picked up here: http://mobidevday2012.eventbrite.com/

So…now let’s hit our LinkedIn group and see what’s going on.

Our resident Voice of Reason is apparently on a privacy and security freak out kick, because he’s started a couple of rather interesting…and yet disturbing…discussions about how useless TSA body scanners are and cops hitting up your cell phones.  Good times.  We’ve also got folks talking about some opportunities for training available to those who have the GI Bill available to them, our semi-regular Star Wars based conversation thread dives into Five Leadership Mistakes of the Galactic Empire thanks to a Forbes article, and all sorts of other fun.  So get yourself over to http://www.linkedin.com/groups/ITintheDorg-Detroit-Networking-Events-IT-91763 and dive in.  New voices are always welcome.  Well, most of the time that’s true.

And while you’re there, you can check out the latest crowd of jobs that have come in from recruiters who participate in our group (and since it’s come up again, here’s how you post jobs in our group: http://www.ITinTheD.com/1153/how-to-post-jobs-with-ITintheD-org/) on at least a semi-regular basis.
