One of the goals of the Big Boulder Initiative is to create opportunities for conversations on the current and future state of social data. Our members are thirsty to hear from each other and find new, valuable use cases to apply in their own projects. These connections don’t just happen once a year in Boulder – our community is vibrant and international.
We are excited to announce our next round of social data meetups that we sponsor in several cities around the globe. Join us to connect with fellow leaders in social data to talk about how social data can be applied in new and creative ways to address a wide range of challenges.
The meetups are free and open to all, so check out the details here and register quickly — they always fill up!
