Web Wednesday - Social Mixer V14.0 (2nd July)

Calling all Asian Digerati (Yes, that means you too!).

Welcome to all new comers of the Web Wednesday community, which has now reached 643 members working in the internet and digital media space across Asia.

Given the turmoil in global financial markets over the past six months, I thought it would be fitting to discuss money and how the internet helps us make (and lose it) at our next Social Mixer (V14.0) on Wednesday 2nd July, from 6pm to 9:30 pm.

Our guest speaker will be Chris Justice, Managing Director of Quamnet, Hong Kong's leading financial portal. Due to popular demand, I'll be reverting to the casual sofa-style interview with Chris, with no powerpoint presentations, and will also delve into his past as the man behind the start of the South China Morning Post's venture into the internet (scmp.com) back in 1996 and also his experiences co-founding Asiacontent.com (no link, sorry), an Internet media and advertising company which was listed on NASDAQ in early 2000.

We will run a fun contest at the event, where you could win one of these prizes:

Prize 1 : Quam Financial Advisory x 6 mths (worth $1,920)
Prize 2 : Quamnet Email ad x 1 time (worth $35,000)
Prize 3 : Quam Money Full Page Ad ($15,000)

All guests welcome so do bring your stock-picking granny to share her online trading expertise!

If you wish to join our bustling community, either send me an email or sign up for the Web Wednesday Group on Facebook. Looking forward to seeing old faces and meeting many new ones!

In the meantime, you can listen to past interviews here, see past event photos on our flickr group or follow our thought stream on twitter.
