Whew! I just returned back to San Diego from the amazing Gravity Social Media Summit at Harvard. The event was held at the historic Harvard Faculty Club and was a sight to behold. The rapid pace of the event and the amount of truly insightful content that was shared by the presenters and attendees was truly amazing. To have this many great minds in 1 room at 1 time helping each better understand how businesses are using social media for high impact results is a sight to behold. The huge online engagement from the Twittersphere immediately added to the conversation. To have this massive reach to a worldwide audience is a sign of how important conversations get shared online.
There were well over 4000 Tweets and #gravsum was a trending topic on Twitter. This just goes to show the enormous digital reach and rapid velocity of great content being shared outside of a physical location with just 120 attendees.
The entire days events were live streamed on CNN.com/Live to a worldwide audience. Here is a Live interview with MC Hammer from the event that ran on CNN Television.
We also had amazing local media coverage:
Boston Business Journal

We also had many Bloggers writing about the event; here are just a few.

Our Second Keynote Speaker was Gary Vaynerchuk. He has a new book coming out in the Fall called “Crush It”. I just like to call him Mr. Passion.
