On the heels of SXSW comes BarCampNYC3, which will take place at Polytechnic University in Brooklyn. Although it's sold out at this point, you can always hit the wiki to get on the waiting list (or send a convincing email to one of the very cool organizers).
Schedule permitting, I will be there to chat about VRM (Vendor Relationship Management) along with friend and colleague, Adriana Lukas. Described very well by Ian Delaney of New Media Knowledge, VRM is:
about you controlling how organisations/ companies/ brands communicate with you. Giving back the power to the consumer. The implications of the current thinking have as much power as blogs and blogging - they're the end-game of the 'Cluetrain Manifesto' and 'Permission Marketing'.It's real, and coming soon. It's new media punk rock.
Much more to come on this. In the meantime, if this sounds interesting, there's another chance to talk VRM with Adriana (very sorry to miss this sit-down) during an informal gathering on Friday, March 14th. More details are here.
