It’s time to get this party started everyone… we have some announcements to make.
But before I introduce the board, I want to thank you for supporting the club over the last few years. It has been awesome getting to know all of you. Some I know more than others, but let’s make sure we change that… OK?
I am very lucky to have a great board of talented and devoted folks to make this club a success. Each of us are taking on specific roles and responsibilities to make sure that SMCSLC runs smoothly, has incredible events, and when the time comes allow us to pass on the torch to the next leaders of SMCSLC with limited to no interruption.
One last thing before I announce the board. We need your help. We have 1 board position still open, as well as many committee positions. If you are interested, there will ne more on that below.
A little over a year ago, Scott Cowley, Doc (Darin Berntson) and I met to discuss the re-launch of Social Media Club of Salt Lake City (SMCSLC). Since that time, we’ve recruited an incredible leadership team whose dedication and tireless efforts have helped turned SMCSLC into the incredible organization that it is. It is because of the devoted Board, that each and every event was a big success! I am honored to have led such an amazing group for the last year.
Hello social media fans. This week, mostly meaning yesterday and today, YouTube is now totally in love with this high school senior from Texas named Jon Cozart. And why not? He has entertained about 3 million people since Tuesday when he posted this hilariously talented display of time and creativity. From what we understand, he wrote it, recorded it, filmed it and even did the artwork. We hope that he makes much money and gets much love and affection, because someone this talented deserves the 3 Fs: Fame, Fortune and aFfection. (Get your minds out of the gutter!)
It’s Really Just A Black Hole
…and I don’t care – I love it.
When I first jumped on the big old social media bandwagon I knew exactly what it was all about – we are a group of people that really like talking about ourselves. Whether or not we have something to promote. At the time I didn’t. I blogged for my family about the ludicrous travel bug that bit me as I journeyed around the world for a few years. That was cool. For me. I wasn’t getting rich or changing the world.
People with free time everywhere have been looking for the next semi-hilarious dance step they could do for about 30 seconds and upload to the internet. Right in the nick of time, a YouTube vlogger (we will not dignify him with a mention, but his info can be found here) digs up this catchy tune and a delightfully terrible dance move and gifts us with “The Harlem Shake.”
Here is the original:
And then here are a few of the more than 50,000 video versions of this “dance”:
