A New Year, A New Decade, A New Carnival Season

Time to kick off the new year’s blogging, and what better time for a native o the Crescent City to do so than Twelfth Night, the official start of the Carnival season! In the spirit of the season I’d like to share the following video clip from my home town with you. In it we get a bit of a view on how social media is being adopted by the traditional secret societies that put on the parades- the Carnival Krewes:


This coming year should be a good one. Here are a few of the things in the works for SocialGumbo in 2011:

In addition to my usual contract work I will be continuing to pen my weekly blog for SixEstate Communications as well as continuing to work on campaigns for them.

I should also be making an announcement in the Spring about our  first experiment with pdf publishing. Look for an announcement then about our new secondary imprint under which we will be publishing material for tabletop RPGs, primarily Pathfinder.

This year both of our hyperlocal projects – HumidCity in NOLA and CincyVoices in Cincinnati – will be getting a face lift and adding some new team members. Speaking of HumidCity, later this month I will be covering the NOLA Comic Con there so if geek news appeals to you there is fun stuff coming!

So here’s to it! A new year, a new decade, and a new Carnival season! May all three be exceptional, educational, and full of new social media toys!
