We’ve got some big news, and we want you to join us. Grab your laptop, and get ready for SMW13 interaction on a new level…
SMW13 is partnering up with HuffPost Live
Today, at 5pm EST, our media partner HuffPost Live covers how safeguarding free expression and an Open Internet is still a critical issue. Watch the exchange on the current issues facing both our country and the global community, with leading thinkers, including: Jillian York of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Andrew Rasiej of Personal Democracy Forum, and Christine Chen of Google.
With their use of Google+ On Air HangOuts, HuffPost Live does live integration of social media better than most.
Check it out and share your comments. The conversation doesn’t stop on HuffPost Live.
Join us today here, but don’t get too settled. That’s just the beginning of what we are doing with Google+!
We asked our community to come up, and then host, incredible Hangouts during SMW13, with the best one recieving a $5k prize! Over 40 events were chosen to participate! From chatting about education with girls in underdeveloped nations, to cooking tortillas, there is a wide range of Hangouts for you to chose from and participate in. Tune-in. Tell us which SMW user Hangouts you think are best, and we’ll unveil the winner following SMW13. See them all here.

Wednesday, Feb. 20th from 2:30 – 4pm: Daria Musk and Google: Social Media and the Rock Star
If you’re looking for a bit more fun, then you want to head to Hearst (or G+!) to see Daria Musk. An Internet sensation, she’s taken over Google+ to expand her reach musically. She may even give you a performance or two…
As well as numerous events livestreamed via Google+ Hangouts in SMW Lagos, like An Afternoon with Honorable Abike Dabiri Chairman of the Committee on Diaspora Affairs and Master Class: Production, Sound Engineering + DJing Led By Young Guru & Just Blaze. Then our team in Hamburg is hosting their NextMobility Urban Project on Google+ Hangouts! Nextmobility – shaping the future of urban mobility will definitely be something you’ll want to partake in.
Warby Parker and Google+
Warby Parker: the latest business sensation. Google+: the stable but creative force. Together. From February 19 to 21, Ideas Connected at the Global HQ in SMW NYC will feature an installation which allows users to interact via Google Hangout. Pulling in some surprise attendees, one thing you do know is it’ll be fun and spot-on. If you’re in town, make to check it out live.
