We are most fortunate to have one of the premier and longest running Internet Conferences right here in the Triad of North Carolina. The event is extremely affordable (thanks to grants and some serious local funding) and will be held this year October 1-2. See more information below, but seriously, just click over and register. Now. Do it already!

About Converge South
After a short break to re-energize, ConvergeSouth 2010 is back to champion Creativity Online For Everyone. Mark your calendars for October 1 and 2, 2010 and set your Google Maps for downtown Greensboro, NC.
We’re excited to connect social media novices, strategists who know their way around social networking and experts willing to share their stories and advice.

This year’s event will feature three tracks:

Personal Branding
From Twitter 101 to best blogging practices, you’ll learn hands-on how to create your profiles across networks and the value of social media for reputation building, brand monitoring and more.

Internet Strategy for Small Business
Taking it to the next level, you’ll learn how branding is more than your logo, why content is king, how you can create a free website for your business and that using free social media tools pays off — but requires a different kind of investment.

Developing Outside the Box
From developing your own apps for iPhone, Facebook and more, to getting them approved and becoming a millionaire 99 cents at a time – this track connects developers and tech-savvy users.

Saturday Feature Luncheon
Join everyone for a buffet lunch and a panel discussion, “Internet Legislation,” moderated by John Robinson, Editor, News & Record. Joining the panel are Congressman Howard Coble, Congressman Brad Miller and several North Carolina legislators.
