Win Free Tickets to the March 6 Speak to Me Event in Mill Valley

February 15, 2012

Deanna ZandtSpeak to Me, Marin's premiere series of intelligent, inspiring speaking events for women, presents "How New Media Will Transform Society, Politics and our Future," a discussion with provocative social media and technology maven Deanna Zandt on Tuesday, March 6, 2012, from 6:30–9:30 pm. Zandt is a media technologist and author of Share This!: How You Will Change the World with Social Networking.

As social media becomes increasingly present in our lives, a major cultural shift is underway. Through the power of relationships, sharing experiences, and organizing online, previously marginalized voices are pouring into and shaping public conversations like never before. With the explosion of social media, women's voices are now being heard, and the next generation is growing up in a world where social media brings unexpected freedom and opportunity, as well as potential peril. Deanna Zandt will discuss the power and challenges that this technological revolution brings to our lives, and will explore how the web is changing the course of society, business and politics, and will suggest ways you can best leverage its power for yourself, your family and your community.
