Events: Social Media Week 2012 Starts TODAY!

Social Media Week 2012 starts TODAY and goes until February 17th.  The event is headquartered in New York but there will also be a full schedule of events in Hamburg, Hong Kong, London, Miami, Paris, San Francisco, Sao Paulo, Singapore, Tokyo, Toronto, and Washington DC. If you're not located in any of these cities or an event you are interested in is sold out, you can still participate through their online and mobile platforms. Events include a full day of (mostly FREE) lectures - either panels on pertinent topics in social media or remarks from keynote speakers.  There are also several strictly social networking events in the evenings.
