We keep the group to approximately 10 attendees so we can all listen and contribute to the conversation.

Chris Brogan is currently (only until Dec 31st at 10PM ET!) offering an interesting deal… buy his brand new Google+ For Business book ($9.99 for Kindle or $15.50 for Paperback) and he will give you access to his 3 Part Video Series on How To Write and Publish a Book.
The book is surely worth $15, so this may be a no-brainer purchase for those who have read Chris’s previous book Trust Agents (which I really liked ), heard him speak or follow his Blog. He is an authority on social media, and if you may ever want to write a book I am sure the video series will be quite helpful.
I just purchased the Google+ For Business Kindle book and emailed Chris my receipt… seems like a smoking deal for only $9.99.
Simply buy the Google+ book through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or 800 SEO Read, then send your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org (note: not COM, it’s CO), before 10PM ET on Saturday (Dec 31, 2011).
