Vote for Canada's most influential man/woman in social media

Dave Forde over at Profectio has initiated a contest to find out who is Canada’s most influencial man and woman in social media. Voting closes at midnight Dec. 31.

I am extremely honoured to have been nominated as one of Canada’s most influential women in social media, but I do feel like I have a lot more to do before I’d be worthy the title. So I’d love your support but I also acknowledge there are many other fabulous women on the list who certainly do deserve it! Also I’m super happy to see someone from Ottawa on the list, though I wish I had been paying attention during nominations because there’s a few other Ottawa gals who should most definitely be there. (@Suzemuse and @zchamu come immediately to mind)

As for the men, there’s quite the list. I actually haven’t decided who to vote for because there are so many great choices. (And a few Ottawa folks too–9 by my quick count!) So what are you waiting for, go vote!

Learn all about social media measurement in Ottawa this month…

Do you get social media, but still wondering how to effectively measure it? Are you in (or planning to be in) Ottawa next week? Well good news for you because there’s a couple of great events happening!

Third Tuesday is happening next Wednesday, November 26, at the Clocktower brew pub on Bank St. (Which brews in-house some fabulous beer, I like the raspberry wheat) but the real treat is the topic (Making the case for new tools in tough times: Measure now, don’t be sorry later) and the speakers, Chris Johnson, President of dna13, Craig Comeau from Radian6 and Parker Mason from CNW Group.

As you may recall, I’ve reviewed Radian6 here before, and I had the pleasure of meeting Parker Mason last time he was in town so I’m definitely excited for this lineup. Hope you can make it out! Register through Meetup (free registration required)

If you can’t make it out on Wednesday, the DigitalOttawa Meetup Group is hosting an event with Radian6 the next day, Thursday, November 27. Unfortunately I can’t make this one as I’ll be at StartupCamp Montreal, where SmartHippo is selected as a presenter! Hope to see you there.
