Last year, we were thinking of organizing Bloggers.SG. As you all know, it was a great success... as far as "thinking" goes (although not so much the "doing" part).
For Bloggers.SG 2007, likely to be held in the latter part of the year, we decided we could do away with both the "thinking" and the "doing" together. (Thinking is hard okay!)
We decided to form the "Web 3.0 Entrepreneurial Creative Innovation Social Network Hub Steering Committee"* or W3ECISNHSC in short. The mission statement for W3ECISNHSC is "to innovate by leveraging the entrepreneurial spirits of Singaporeans to organize a creative social event for Singaporean bloggers and to be the Blogging Hub for the region.".
Here is the W3ECISNHSC Masterplan.
The "Open Mike" session went very well in 2005 despite it taking a while for people to understand the meaning of "Open Mike". Although we would like to run the Open Mike session for a whole day, we also have other exciting topics planned, for example "lEaRn tO bLoG iN aLt cApS" and "|3@|2|\| +0 |}3 |_||+|2@-1337". We were also "strongly encouraged" to include a 8-hour session on "How to be a responsible blogger and praise the government".
Please give us your ideas on what else you want to be included on the agenda.
2) Event Organization
Being the lazy slobs we are, we have adopted the government best practice process known as "Bestsourcing". Yep, we've decided to "bestsource" the event organization to a professional event company.
So if you are from an event company and interested to run Bloggers.SG, do contact us at email@example.com (esp. if you are willing to do it for free!).
We were very lucky to have sponsors like MSN and SHINE to support our
topless party blogging convention in 2005. Without our dear sponsors, there wouldn't have been a blogging convention. This year, we hope we will be able to get more sponsors. Specifically, we are looking for in-kind sponsors like venue, t-shirts, food, drinks and money... especially $$$ since we probably have to pay the event company to run it.
So if you have stashes of cash lying around and dunno what to do, call us at 1-800-TOMORROW now and we will throw in a free T-Shirt
(leftover stock from 2005)! Call now: our lines are open and our friendly operators are standing by.
