#SMfastfwd with #ecec10 retrospective, 11.17.10: a recap

ChatterBachs hosted a #SMfastfwd tweetchat with a retrospective on EventCamp East Coast (#ecec10) on Wednesday, November 17th. EventCamp East Coast was held in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania on November 12th and 13th; I wrote a blog post on that weekend entitled: “14 Personal Highlights from EventCamp East Coast”.  Here is a recap of the November 17th tweetchat. I’ve tried to put in a format where the actual flow is easier to follow and makes sense, background chatter has been minimized, and so that the most valuable information and insights from #SMfastfwd are presented without this blog post getting too long. Again, it was quite the flurry of activity with so many great insights and comments being contributed.  To see more, please visit http://www.whatthehashtag.com and search for #SMfastfwd.

eventsforgood: Yes one more takeaway – @ChatterBachs has fun chats! Supportive, unique, and practices what he preaches!

The following comments were not directly related to a specific question in the tweetchat, but they were just too funny or insightful to exclude from this recap:

samueljsmith: I am happy to see everyone so excited and connected. It is fun just listening to your conversation.

JeniseFryatt: @LindsayFultz It really is nice to be on a chat where people are supporting, building each other up. @chatterbachs

JeniseFryatt: @ASegar I can see why you’ve been so anxious to spread the word about “Conferences that Work” 🙂

E5V: @chatterbachs would it be possible that you post on your site a discussion seeking questions for #smfastfwd chats? Would be a nice connect

camerontoth: Nothing is worse than slow chat. I have moderated. It’s not fun.RT @eventsforgood: I love fast chats. Hour goes by so quickly!
