May 1st event in SF teaching social media skills & strategy-free

Hey everyone–
Public Media Collaborative is doing its first teaching event May 1st, We already have over 60 people registered to participate, and about 15 people who will be teaching and/or volunteering to man the tables. (And we’ll have a logo! And a flier!)

You can help by spreading the word about this event to everyone you know who might be interested and encouraging them to take part.

Blog. Twitter. Agitate. You know.

We also have a team of people who are starting to plan a mid-July social media for social action day of training–if you’d like to be a part of that project, check into the wiki and sign up that that here:
