The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has been notorious for its tight grip over media coverage in past years. The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games, dubbed by some as the "Twitter Games", have been a dramatic departure, changing the way we experience large-scale events across the globe.
Rebecca Bolwitt, John Biehler and Kris Krug, leaders in the social media coverage of the 2010 Games, join us for our panel on how social media has changed the Olympics and the future of citizen journalism.

co-author of the new book, "Blogging to Drive Business". She has been blogging about Vancouver since 2004 on Miss604.com, and podcasting since 2005. In 2008 she co-founded sixty4media, offering social media consulting services from custom WordPress themes, audio serivces for podcasts, video screencast production, as well as event liveblogging and blogging tutorials.
John Biehler is:
an E-Business analyst, a technologist, a consultant, conference speaker, a trainer, a photographer among many other things. He also has a mega-awesome voicemail greeting.

Note from Monica
Firstly, if you know Tanya Davis be sure to wish her well on her new path. She's been with Third Tuesday Vancouver from the beginning and is one of the most generous, upbeat and professional people I know. It's been a joy to work with her and I have no doubt that she will do amazingly in Calgary and that the city will be better for her presence.
Secondly, I am very pleased to have Jeremy Lim as Third Tuesday's new co-organizer. He's whip smart, talented and pretty all-around fantastic.
Thank you, Tanya & Welcome, Jeremy!
