Last year at BlogOrlando we had a session called 'The Orlando Scene'. The concept was to bring together folks for different backgrounds to talk about things like cow-orking, start-ups, etc. It's a year later, so what's changed? We gathered some of the local area leaders to talk over what's going on in Orlando.

Download Pecha Kucha Video

This is an abbreviated history of the first few years of Florida Creatives - including some stuff that inspired me to create the first Happy Hour in Orlando, and the folks who were very instrumental in getting the group started and keeping things healthy.

Several of the events and people surrounding the first BlogOrlando brought about many of the things we hold dear today, such as:

BlogOrlando was really the event that kicked Florida Creatives out of the minds of the collective and into reality. Don't believe me? Watch this video. Yours truly has the full explanation of how it all went down.

Recorded at the first Pecha Kucha Night in Jacksonville.

Voce Communications, in partnership with Rollins College will host the third edition of this FREE event that was open to bloggers and non-bloggers alike from Florida and anywhere else. We bring together a good cross-section of folks to discuss blogging, podcasting, public relations, social media, citizen's journalism and other related topics. The event was as much a social/family gathering as it is a 'work' gathering.

There is an opening and a closing reception in Downtown Orlando on Orange Ave both nights - check the schedule for details.

I just noticed on a PeachPit Press blog that Blog Orlando was mentioned. Normally I don't read their blogs, but I happened to come
across a link in their newsletter that I get since they sponsor my user group. Among the big names mentioned in the post is one of our own crew, Alex Rudloff. Here's a quote:
