policy at the state and federal levels; promote urban and rural economic development and job creation to help families and congregations escape or avoid poverty by making sure they are well informed. Federal investment is designed to spur economic recovery, but without participation by unemployed persons and underutilized firms, the stimulus cannot achieve its purpose”

Living Atlanta Style | Buzzed to #SocialShakeup Social Media Today Conference | Photo & VideoBuzz

September 18, 2014

VideoBuzz:  DryerBuzz spent the day at #SocialShakeup courtesy of @PureCities and boy did we shake things up. First up we attended the “Atlanta as an Innovation Hub” Panel moderated by Atlanta City Council Member Kwanza Hall with panelists Jon Birdsong, Jeff Hilimire, and Donovan Panone.  The panel was followed by buzzing keynote by @Baratunde Thurston, political blogger and author, and digital strategist.

Our takeaways from both panel and keynote: where’s B to C (business to customers) tech solutions, traffic solutions, and often reiterated “listen vs talk talk talk” in social media.
