Now that Cisco Live is upon us, I figured it was due time to show you where all the fun social media stuff is going to happen. I’ve already told you about it before, but a picture is worth a thousand words. Or, in this case, a map.
On Sunday, June 10, there will be a tweetup happening on the upper level of the San Diego Convention Center (SDCC) at 3 p.m. I know there’s a lot of stuff going on that day. People are arriving and checking in. There are techtorials and tests and all manner of things. This event will be casual and come-and-go so as not to crimp anyone’s schedule. It’s mostly a chance for the social media folks to get together and hang out before the craziness of the week starts up on Monday. Here’s where we’ll be (look for the circled area):
It should be labeled as Lounge 2 on your maps, either on your tablet/phone or in the map you get at check-in. We’ll be there for a while, so don’t worry if you can’t make it right at 3 p.m. I’m usually the last one to leave, so if you are worried about not making it be sure to ping me on Twitter and I’ll tell you what’s going on.
During the event, starting Monday at 4 p.m., the World of Solutions (WoS) will be open for attendees. This is where the Cisco Social Media Lounge will be located. During the hours the WoS is open, I’m going to be in the Social Media lounge most of the time. Consider this “Tom’s Corner” for Cisco Live 2012. I’m sure the couches will be more comfortable than the chairs from last year. Here’s our spot on the big map:
Right by the entrance. And, conveniently located by the t-shirt booth as well. I’ll be in the Social Lounge when the WoS opens on Monday evening. Right after I go to the Certifications Lounge and get my CCIE ribbon. I plan on mingling and hanging out as much as I can and meeting new people, so don’t be afraid to stop by and say hello. There’s a lot of great discussion that goes on when a few engineers get together.
I can barely contain the excitement that I have for Cisco Live this year. All of my friends from social media made Cisco Live 2011 the best conference ever. Now that everyone has shown me the power of social media, let’s do the same for Cisco. I want the most talked-about thing from Cisco Live 2012 to be the amazing time that everyone had during the tweetups and in the Social Media Lounge in the WoS. Let’s send the message the Cisco Live really is the best place to be social!
