I’ve signed up to Rock the Red Pump and show my support of increasing awareness of how women and girls in the United States are affected by HIV/AIDS and to salute the courage and strength they face each day in dealing with this disease – and I think you should, too.
What is The Red Pump Project?
It is a project that was started by Luvvie Ajayi and Karyn Watkins in March 2009 to help raise awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls as part of a nationwide initiative.
They chose to use the Red Pump as a symbol of empowerment and as an embodiment of the strength and courage of women and girls who are affected by HIV/AIDS.
National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is March 10th every year and as a part of that effort, Rock the Red Pump was launched as a way for bloggers to show their support for women and girls who are affected by HIV/AIDS and represents the strength and courage of these women and girls.
In the first year, 2009, their initial campaign goal was to get 100 blogs to sign up. They had 125. Last year the number of blogs doubled to 250. This year the goal is to double that to 500 in 50 days and they exceeded that by getting 650 in 25 days.

In December, Carmen Scheidel (@Scheidel), Director of Education, Events and Multimedia Content at mediabistro (@mediabistro), came to me with an idea – the hybrid between a conference and the kind of online courses I teach for them (@mediabistroedu).
The concept would be 8 weeks long, with a conference keynote, question and answers as well as how-to session every Wednesday. Alongside the conference would be coursework that would allow students to come up with social media strategy they can implement by – or before – the end of the course.
It’s the Social Media Marketing Boot Camp, presented by mediabistro.com, SocialTimes, and AllFacebook, and I could not be more thrilled by the names we’ve been able to attract as well as the curriculum to assist anyone to come away with high-level exposure and understanding, as well as a valuable business commodity.
Today is the last day to take advantage of not only early bird pricing, but also an additional $50 off by using promo code JN50.
Carmen and I discuss what you can expect from the March 23 – May 11, 2011 event in our preview here:Vodpod videos no longer available.
Live Podcast: Augie Ray, Former Senior Forrester Research Analyst and Future Executive Director of Community and Collaboration for USAA

Augie Ray (@augieray) first joined The A-List back in April 2009, before he became a Senior Forrester Research (@Forrester) Analyst, filling the shoes of Jeremiah Owyang (@jowyang), who left to become a partner at the Altimeter Group.
Somewhat ironically, the very thing that urged me to ask Augie to join the program back in 2009, was became an object of scrutiny, when Forrester decided analysts could no longer maintain personally-branded research blogs.
Augie seemed to take it in stride, posting his own response to the decision.
When I received my first post since the decision from Augie’s blog, I was thrilled. In it, he explained his decision and his new role at USAA (@USAA). That’s one thing I love about Augie – he always tells you the way it is…
