JETLAG is at it again! Having set the bar high last year with its haute couture, invitation only events, JETLAG sets the standard for high society networking. Each event attracts hundreds of the most fashion-forward, technologically astute professionals for an incredible evening of socializing, networking, entertainment, dancing, and a good cause.

TRENDY LIME produces JETLAG. They are the world’s trendiest network of influencers and world-travelers and events organization, setting the standard for classy exclusive events in the hottest of venues in San Francisco and other major cities in the USA, Brazil, and Europe. We have an international social network that comprises 6,000+ members – over half of which have a masters or doctorate degree. Most of our members enjoy professional careers in Finance, Law, Media, High Tech, Marketing or Fashion and 4 out of 10 of them speak 3 or more languages.

Held at the most upscale venues, JETLAG is an exclusive social event that works to bring together trend-setters and influencers.  JETLAG will host its second anniversary event on June 14th. at 9:00 pm at the Clift’s famous Redwood Room, a cherished San Francisco landmark, suffused with glamour, ornate redwood and Philippe Starck’s designer furniture. As its a small and intimate setting, you must hurry to make sure the tickets do not run out! Go to eventbrite to purchase them:

Did you know that API stands for Application Programming Interface?  You hear that acronym thrown around all the time these days, but what does it stand for? Why should you care? And most important, how do they impact your business?  These questions and more were discussed during the Social Media Club of San Francisco’s panel discussion at @Mashery HQ in San Francisco, Tuesday the 15th of May.

Moderating was Christopher Saad, the Chief Strategy Officer and Co Founder of Echo. @Chrissaad’s Echo works with sites such as Lady Gaga, Discovery Channel and Universal Music Groups. Raj Kadam, Co-founder and CEO of @ViralHeat and works extensively with sentiment analysis, analytics and engagement for social media and real time web. Roland Smart, VP of Marketing at Involver which powers more pages on Facebook than any other platform. Muray Mckerlie, Co-Founder and VP of Sales & Marketing of, an API that creates “Relevancy Ratings.” And to round out the panel, Tyler Singletary, the Developer Evangelist for @Klout and manages the API platform. He also has a brother at Twitter!

API’s are open data systems that allow anyone to create and customize rules to build upon the original data and create what might be needed for your own business or organization. If your not sure what an API is, s simple, fun explanation of API’s is offered by BBYOPEN on YouTube here:

It was an open discussion also in the way that the seating was set up for the event. Rather than have the 5 panelists that face the audience as if lecturing, the chairs were a bit “helter skelter “off to the side. It set the stage for an engaging and open conversation about how API’s influence us today especially in the world of Social Media.

IGNITION West tackled some meaty questions: what’s in store for the future of mobile technology? What’s happening now, what’s next, and how does it affect your business? Valerie Reimer, Operations Manager of Business Insider’s IGNITION West, says the focus is on startups, and the movers and shakers who are actively evolving mobile tech. The audience at the Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco teemed with C-level executives, founders, startups, VC’s, angels and analysts. I sat in on the opening keynote with Henry Blodget, CEO and editor-in-chief of Business Insider, and Ben Horowitz, Co-Founder and general partner of Andreessen Horowitz.

Blodget shared some fun factoids about the mobile space. Smartphones, he said, are exceeding PCs, and the only platforms that matter are Android and iPhone. Android is experiencing major fragmentation — it’s not as easy to monetize and even developers appear less interested in it.

Mobile advertising, social media, music, and eCommerce are attracting lots of attention from developers, but games are hotter than anything. Angry Birds, Instagram, Draw Something — they’re all wildly successful. Have you even heard of Draw Something? It’s the number one app in 79 countries and was only launched in February. It’s already attracting 12 million users per day — (not surprising, it was acquired by Zynga shortly after the conference for $180 million). In short, mobile is global. And it’s bursting at the seams with growth.
