The Chicago ConvergenceNing Network Spotlight
The Chicago Convergence aims to “pioneer Chicago as the global hub of change and innovation.” On the social network, members are encouraged to collaborate about new ventures in technology. They post interesting technology speeches or talks in the Videos section. To reinforce this use, they’ve used the Tab Manager to rename the Videos tab to “Talks.”
The Events section keeps Chicagoans up to date on upcoming conferences, workshops, and networking opportunities, like the Chicago Convergence 2009 conference happening in September. Members have also organized into Groups based on specific area of interest, like journalism, music, activism, and marketing.
