The good folks over at SMC Seattle invited me to moderate a panel next Tuesday on “Ethics, Money and New Ideas.” I’m not sure if they think I have plenty of those things, or am lacking. Either way, I was happy to accept.
The panelists that I’ll be trying to prod into healthy debate include Andru Edwards, the CEO of Gear Live Media. Andru went from blog hobbyist to full-time paid blogger, and he’s a definitive source for technology, pop culture, and entertainment news. We’ll also have Izabelle Gorczynski, a privacy attorney at Microsoft, who is going to speak to international data protection matters relating to product development, sales and marketing, social media and data security, as well as HIPAA compliance and medical privacy issues. Rounding out the on-site group will be Matt Haynes from Wunderman. Ad agencies and ethics are always good ingredients for a spicy conversation. So we’ll have the Influencer, the Lawyer and the Mad Man – If I can’t lead that cast into interesting storylines, I should be banned from any future events.
But being that this is a social media event, I do want to include ideas from attendees or readers. If you have a social media ethics question, let me know via email, Twitter or comment box below, and I’ll work it into the conversation.
