Read the below and keep in mind how Hispanicize is on the cutting edge of this area.

Over the past couple weeks, two events got me thinking.

At South by Southwest in Austin, I was at several events attended by the “social media mafia” – the 300 or so folks that create much of the content around social media nationally. Bloggers, consultants, community managers, et al. There are of course many excellent social media practitioners that do not attend SXSW, but there is definitely a high concentration of social media pros at these taco-fueled events. One of the events was even produced by Amber Naslund and me, as a launch party for The NOW Revolution (awesome pics here).

As I looked around at these events, I noticed that the vast majority of attendees appeared to be 25-39 years old (I’m actually an old fart in social media circles), and the vast majority were White.
