Hi, my name is @JoeJCurry, and I have a social media #addiction. Depending on who you ask, that may not be far from the truth! However, considering social media is part of my job, it’s no different than other folks’ curiosity for their careers. Today in Dallas was a reunion of sorts for people like me–people who work in a converging space of communications, marketing and technology.
Every couple months, my pioneering peers and I turn off our digital devices and meet face-to-face to talk ideas, swap solutions & success stories, and rally each other in our goals. It’s energizing. It’s humbling. It’s even a bit therapeutic. Over the past three years, I’ve not only been fortunate to attend 8 sessions with these extended colleagues; I can count many of them as friends.
