Thought Experiment: Tuttle for the North East

by Justin Souter on October 24, 2008


Hello folks

If you’re a Social Media type, then you may have heard of Tuttle. Otherwise, check this out.

So, my contention is that the North East of England could do with a focus for Social Media wannabes (and Pros, of course).

The idea would be to extend the Tuttle coverage up to the North East, and use the template created by the London, Brighton, and Birmingham groups.

It may well not go anywhere, and certainly will have a time limit / shelf life (remember First Tuesday?).

Whilst it may first be a group of people working in this discipline [i.e. a discipline that participants help define for themselves], it would be good to have practitioners as equals in the group. Jeremiah Owyang maintains a list.

I’m in business to make money and assume others are as well, so there would be a commercial edge to proceedings.

I’m happy to be instrumental, but I suspect that it needs to be a co-operative approach, with a number of people driving it forward. Sort of a glorified Tag team.

I guess it may well need a wiki as per Brighton.

I suggest that instead of meeting every week, it may be as well to congregate, say, an hour before Codeworks Connect events (i.e. once a month). But I’d need to ask them [apologies in advance to anyone / everyone – doh]!

Please comment below or mail me at tuttle – at – justingsouter – dot – eu [n.b. I’m still in the process of setting up the mail for this domain…]. Ta.
