Social Web Week CT - Reflecting On An Amazing Week #swct

Looking back on this WTNH news piece the #getitdone crew did with Chris Velardi, it's hard to believe what has transpired in the last week! 30 sessions in 7 days. Bringing hundreds of people together. I was lucky to be at the anchor events each night and I was repeatedly blown away by the amazing people I met, the great conversations and idea sharing that happened. We all have a common goal of wanting to make the world a better place starting right in our back yard.

As I said in my interview: "The whole is greater than the sum of it's parts." has really proven itself to be true. Social Web Week has transformed energy into action and changed virtual to reality.

This will live on beyond GoogleHaven, Social Web Week & Podcamp CT. The connections we have made have made us all better because of it.

Tonight is the 30th event. A time to look back and celebrate what we have accomplished and to look forward to the next journey on our evolving path.

Join us.

Qik video of Social Web Week Kickoff #swct

OUR Social Web - Social Web Week 2010 #swct

I wanted to post an Email that Andre Yap from sent the Social Web Week Group this morning. He sums up my thoughts exactly. I am so excited that the #getitdone crew has been able to harness the energy that was formed from the GoogleHaven movement to make this world a better place. I have been blessed to meet each and every one of you.

"Many of us have known each other from the GoogleHaven days, and as we said then, the process is its own reward. 

Social Web Week CT is proof of that. Look at how much we can look forward to in OUR SOCIAL WEB. When it comes to us, I have stopped using THE, and instead refer to it as OUR social web - our connections, our conversations, our collaborations, our community, all the mighty things we're getting done in days that would have taken years. It's clear to me now that social media and technologies are only as good as what we, the community, do with them.

So, big congratulations to all of us for being part of this, Our Social Web Week CT.". - Andre Yap @andreayap
