We are so happy to have all of you join our conversation!

We have three “(non)Panelists” confirmed! A little bit about each of them:

Cady Childs, of Clarion Content, and Fashionably Tactless is a freelance writer, stylist, and media coordinator. She has a first-hand experience in “the changing face of media,” and her belief that “we as producers must respond to these changes (in the media-scape)” is evident in her online presence.

Mark Branly, of a newly-minted local creative agency Registered Creative (formerly of Neural9), is a Orangutan Swing regular who is comfortable straddling the lines between art and commerce, code and images, and problem-solving and expressing.

Dipika met David de Souza in Washington, D.C., where he used to be based, while checking out the scene there last month. She was inspired to find creative ways to build links after hearing his talk at a meetup on how to make your Web site more awesome to search engines.

We’re psyched! More are on their way, and we would LOVE to have you join us, too. At the event, every one is on the “panel” (that’s how our roundtable works. no hierarchies.)

Join us.
