There are so many great Social Media and Tech events going on all around the world this year. One really cool thing about Social Media is you can still participate, learn and interact with these events virtually from the comfort of your home or office. Honestly, if you are not into getting your junk inspected at the airports, waiting for flight delays and spending some serious cash you may be better off attending your favorite events online and through twitter anyways. More and more Social Media and Technology events are currently being streamed live over the internet either though Livestream or Ustream. The great thing about these technologies is that they are free to use and they allow you in many cases to participate in a chat with the channel so it feels really interactive, unlike traditional TV.
