Photo with Mark Horvath, @hardlynormal
We did three things while we were in Santa Monica - visited the Getty, road the Ferris Wheel on the Pier, and had coffee with Mark Horvath, an advocate for homeless who uses social media to tell their stories and much more. I first heard about Mark when he spoke at Gnomedex this year and our paths crossed virtually on the Twitter activist list, and was finally delighted to meet him in person.
Mark will lead a SXSW session "A Conversation About Social Change Through Social Media", sharing how he was able to utilize such social networking tools as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube in bringing attention and action to the issue of homelessness in America.
One of the highlights of our trip!
