SoCon09, Atlanta's annual social media gathering, opens Friday night

SoCon09, the social media gathering whose deliberations happen in "breakouts" rather than in panel sessions, opens in Atlanta Friday night with a "Big Eating, Big Thinking, Big Networking Dinner" at Maggiano's Little Italy restaurant in Cumberland mall.

The breakouts, scheduled on Saturday at Kennesaw State University, reflect an impressive agenda: "Return on Investment in Social Media," "How to Build Social Capital and Real Capital in the Nonprofit Sector," "Social Media for B2B," "Social Media 101 with Hands-on Training," and "What’s Next With Social Media," among other topics.

If you've been laid off a media job, organizer Leonard Witt has a special message for you: "With some 250 people already registered and with many of them making hiring decisions, its a good event to do the necessary networking to get back into the job market."

Update: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the event here.
