I really enjoyed leading the Artists on the Verge panel at last week’s Mediabistro Social Curation Summit. I met a lot of new people, saw online friends IRL, and learned from just about everyone. It was a great live case study of why it’s important to enhance online professional relationships with live events. It just increases your value and expands your circle: both essential in today’s virtual age.

Thanks to event director Stewart Quealy, my Mediabistro co-host Jason Boog, event coordinator Chiara DePaolo, and everyone at Mediabistro for the opportunity.

Also, thanks to my panelists: Jamie Berger, CEO, UnCovet; Kiate Moy, CEO and Founder of Access4Artists; Chris Murphy, Director of Social Media, DDB New York; Teal Newland, VP of Sales, StumbleUpon, and Nola Weinstein, Executive Editorial Director, Glam Media.

Since it was a social summit, here are some of my favorite tweets that were shared during the panel, which discussed ways artists and other creative people can use the social web to get their content out there … and to get noticed/discovered.
