Four upcoming events I'm attending
There are a handful of web and social media events between now and the end of June that I'll be attending. Want to mention them so that we can maybe get a few more people there.

Social Media Club of Louisville, June 17th
The June meeting of SMC will be held at Fox and Hound Pub & Grille (which was the location of our badass Twitter meetup last week). No panels or topics this time, just networking and socializing.

Forge Louisville web meetup, June 19th
The June meeting of Forge Louisville's web subgroup will be held at Jenicca's. I'm hoping there is a better turnout for this month's event. May was a real snoozer. Otherwise, this one will definitely drop off my calendar for July.

Podcamp Ohio, June 28th, Columbus, OH
This one will be a little bit of a commute for most people in Louisville; however, Todd Earwood and I are making the trip over to Columbus next Saturday. We did the same for Podcamp Nashville earlier this year and it was a great way to meet social media professionals from other markets. Plus, there are several people I know from Cincinnati attending, so it will be a good opportunity to catch up with them.

In addition to podcasting, there will be sessions on Twitter, blogging and lifestreaming/social media aggregation.

Louisville Geek Dinner v.0.5, June 30th
Ben Thomas is hosting the 5th Louisville Geek Dinner at Bluegrass Brewing Company on Shelbyville Road. Will be interesting to see if we can fit everyone in since the last one had almost 100 people. Ben has a wiki (can't have a geek gathering without a wiki) so that you can RSVP there.

For those that can't attend, I will take plenty of photos and even shoot a few QIK videos.
