1 Piazza provides social networking opportunities, empowers social knowledge (TM), and online media.
Founded in March 2008, 1Piazza is an organization created for the social web & entrepreneurial community in DC, MD, and VA. The vision was to “enable social knowledge” by providing a platform where people come together online and in the real world to network, discuss & learn. 1Piazza has hosted many events throughout the year, ranging from networking social gatherings (happy hours & dinners), workshops, and startup entrepreneur demos.
For example, the Social Rockstar Workshop #2 held in November 2008 featured the chief gaming officer from Sun Microsystems, amongst other web 2.0 thought leaders in the area.
1Piazza was founded by PaulWorsham and Kady Chiu in March of 2008, after having collaborated on related efforts starting in 2007.
Paul is one of web 2.0 tech community leaders in the DC area. He founded several meet-up groups, communities now totaling over 2000 members. In March 2008, Paul also started ChiefSocialOfficer.com, a blog about social networking and strategies for leveraging the social web via conversations & community.
Kady is the creater of Kadidid, a marketing consulting firm focusing on enterprise 2.0 and change management, helping companies shifting through the culture changes into a more collaborative environment using social technologies.
