Yesterday was a busy day for me – I had the pleasure of working with Chris Heuer on a workshop (strongly recommendable for anyone who wants to get your fingers into the world of social media and not just leave a workshop with a bunch of casestudies and a feeling of “this is something we need to do”. – Chris rocks in a workshop format=)
The Social Media Club Copenhagen Launch
But the real highlight of the day was the Social Media Club Copenhagen launch. We where about 50 people who met up in Rummet at Republikken set out to find the vision of the Social Media Club Copenhagen. We where so lucky to have Karin Dam Nordlund with us as a facilitator who made us work real hard in the concept of sharing, networks and vision for the club. After looking at about 300 post it notes this morning and the visions we made last night I have a good idea on what the vision for the social media club copenhagen will be, but it’s not final. it’s summed up in the three words “best” + “next”+ “practice” and we still need to find a way to put them into an actual vision. Social Media Club Copenhagenis going to be an association that is non-commercial and where people can trust each other and where they respect each others ideas. We’re going to focus on the physical meetings – but it’s not going to be a social gathering of likeminded people, it’s going to be a place where we explore, where we play and where we grow.
Best: being inspired by what’s the best stuff out there – what works and especially what doesn’t. We are interested in hearing the experiences whether they are some you’ve done in the past or they are more “real time” and something you’re currently struggling with. What kind of tools? What kind of values?
Next: what’s next ? both on a tendency level, but also on a more personal basis – what’s the next thing I need to look at within social media from where I stand and what I want from the world ?
Practice: people want to find out how stuff work – there’s an urge to figure this out and play this out together.
Finally it’s my hope that Social Media Club Copenhagen will be something more like a “business cluster” where people from different companies share their experiences and by that way make everyone smarter and get input from.

finally I want to thank everyone who took time to contribute. Thank you for sharing your input.

Also a special giant thank you to Chris Heuer for helping us out and being with us on the launch=)
