1

The Latism DC Conference, the third installment of the Latinos in Social Media Heritage Tour, took place in Washington DC on December 11 and 12, 2009.

Over 100 attendees from as far as California, Colorado, Philadelphia as well as from the DC, MD and VA area, enjoyed 1-1/2 days chockful of learning, sharing and open discussion about, among other things:

– The basics of Social Media

– How organizations can maximize their Social Media efforts in reaching Latinos

– The implications of Social Media for Latino empowerment

– The vision of Latism regarding its role in bridging the so-called Digital Divide.

I’m honored to be part of the Organizing team for the Conference, heretofore known as The Six Latinas: Kety Esquivel [@KEtyE] , Sylvia Aguilera [@httponline], Alma Suarez [@AmericanLatina], Julie Diaz Asper [@JulieDiazAsper], Jennifer Lubrani [@meningioma] and yours truly [@ergeekgoddess].

Below, some scenes from the conference, to the beat of a very special song:

“Viva Latism!”, created on the spot by Mariachi El Rey. Enjoy!
