The first is held in the glamorous location of Long Beach, California. BBC News - TEDGlobal: Worshipping at the church of TED : "Beyond the eclectic nature of its speakers, the conference is unusual in many ways and has become something of a cult for its followers - appropriately known as TEDsters.

Spooling up for Day One of the Gathering

Then the Social Enterprise Institute (which is also a part of our local host committee) is taking attendees on a cruise around the Long Beach Harbor. I'm noticing one sign of the Gathering maturing: multiple meetings to choose among for what is traditionally a light first day. For me, the morning is the board meeting of the Social Enterprise Alliance (the hosting organization for the Gathering).

Getting Ready for the Gathering

Beneblog: Technology Meets Society

So, I'm heading to Long Beach tomorrow looking forward to more of that camaraderie and shared learning. I'm flying to southern California tomorrow, and have been packing for the trip. I remember back seven years, when I first met Jed Emerson and he told me that I was a social entrepreneur, but that a bunch of them were meeting for a "Gathering." That meeting in Miami was a landmark event for me.

Tuesday at the Gathering

Beneblog: Technology Meets Society

Gonna Take You on a SEA Cruise The Social Enterprise Institute took us on a cruise tour of the Long Beach harbor, which features the Queen Mary, a Russian sub, lots of cargo ships and a few "islands" that are really disguised oil drilling rigs. The Board Meeting The board meeting went well. I met Kris Prendergast, the new CEO of the Social Enterprise Alliance, as well as new board members for the first time. I'm looking forward to my last year (out of 8!)

Gathering: looking back

Dave McDonough and the local host committee also did a terrific job of making our stay in Long Beach exciting. Dave more or less froze on the Long Beach harbor tour, drinking ice cold beer in shirt sleeves while many people wore heavy coats or hid belowdeck where it was warmer and out of the wind! Most Successful Ever! I wasn't surprised to find out that this was the best attended Gathering of the Social Enterprise Alliance.
