One of our favourite things about working in this field is the chance to pass on what we know, to see what happens when people start to grasp the potential of social media... and to see what they do when they run with it.

So I'm delighted to announce we'll be teaching an introductory course in social media this September at the University of British Columbia. The course runs for three Wednesday evenings at UBC's downtown Robson Square campus, from Sept. 9 to 23. Tuition is $375 plus GST.

Here are the details:

This introductory course provides an overview of social media: its history, theories and the principles behind online communication. Through hands-on demonstration of a variety of social media tools including YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, RSS, wikis and social bookmarking, you discover how these tools are shaping modern communication and how to incorporate them into everyday business and personal communications. Topics also include upcoming trends as well as predictions for what's next in social media.

For more info or to sign up, visit UBC's registration page. We hope to see you there!

(By the way, the first night of the course happens on - get this - 09/09/09. Can you imagine a more auspicious date?)

Alex and Rob:


I am glad that you have a new terrain for the pollination process to take deeper root.


This fertile ground has been left to fallow for far too long.


You will do well on this new ground; opening new vistas for people


eagerly searching for new ways to access emerging horizons.


Blessings to your endeavours on this new trail!
