Chase Jarvis SOCIAL

If you’re at all interested in occasionally subverting digital-only communities and you’d wanna gather over a beer or a bite with yours truly and some other like-minded people, I’ve begun holding impromptu social gatherings at random spots around the world, and would love for you to join in.

Participating is simple. Just follow me on Twitter (@chasejarvis) and keep your eyes peeled for an occasional flurry of tweets outlining a place and a time. You’ll have to wade thru my other twitter ramblings and daily iPhone image postings, but at some point, I’ll tweet about getting together for a social at some random bar, restaurant, ice cream parlor, opium den, playgound, etc, and we’ll connect and chat photography, video, art, pop culture, whatever. Doesn’t matter if 2, 20, or 200 people show up – I’m just interested in meeting some people that I’ve historically had virtual-only relationships with, getting people together analog-style, and talking shop. This is not formal in any way, in fact… [click the 'continue reading' link below]

…it’s exactly the opposite: my little rebellion against it. This is not me talking. It’s not a seminar. It’s not a photo event or Flickr roundup. Think impromptu beers or coffee with friends. Think casual gathering, with a short lead time, flash-mob style. Think SOCIAL. No host bar/food, just show up and hang out and socialize. And if you’re thinking I only make it to the big cities, think again. My travel schedule puts me in some pretty random places, and I’d like to meet you.

I am on the road a lot–including this week–so if this interests you, tune in to Twitter. Hope we cross paths in real life.

[And, lastly, thanks again for all the feedback on my recently refreshed chasejarvis.com. If you missed the post or haven't ducked outside of your email or RSS reader to check it out, I'd welcome some feedback. Muy bueno and many thanks.]

    Thanks for your offfer. See you in Dubai.

    I hear from my mom in Everett that it’s snowing again. She just came down to visit me in San Diego where it’s going to be in the 70′s this week and sunny. Plus…I work for HP and you can come and do all the prints you can possibly imagine (ink bribery). If I ask the right people we might be able to do some side-of-the-building size prints too. So look me up via my blog if you’re in town.

  22. Ezra March 15, 2009 at 5:52 pm #

    New York :)

  23. brett maxwell March 15, 2009 at 6:13 pm #

    Very cool. Michigan is well regarded as being one of the best beer regions in the world (right there with So Cal and Belgium), so if you’re ever out here post up on your Twitter and I can recommend some really great micro breweries and would do what I can to meet up and buy you a pint.

  24. Keegan Sparks March 15, 2009 at 6:51 pm #

    I hope Arkansas is one of those random places, I would love to meet you.

  25. Luis Vargas March 15, 2009 at 7:13 pm #

  28. Brian March 15, 2009 at 8:28 pm #

    Awesome. =) Always the approachable celebrity! I’ll be looking forward to your visit to Baltimore! Would have been fun to kick back a beer or tea and talk photography when I was out there in Seattle!

    Oh wait… is this just a sly plan to get free beer, dinner, etc??? =) Well it would certainly be worth it – I’d buy a round of beers, burgers, pizza, etc for your chatting company! Welcome to stardom.

  29. Wild Imagination March 15, 2009 at 8:50 pm #

    I’ll look forward to it next time you make it to podunk, Fairbanks, AK.

    I mentioned on Twitter, but if you ever find yourself in SW England, particularly the Bristol area, well I’ll be sure to meet up, and I’m sure there’s a few others round here that would take the time too.

  37. watzabatza March 16, 2009 at 7:45 am #

    whoa! i don’t drink that beer. :-)

  38. David March 16, 2009 at 8:55 am #

    Chase – I just did this with my own blog readers here in Vancouver – had a spectacular time! I can’t think of a way I’d rather spend an afternoon or evening – community-building is where it’s at, man!

  39. Luis March 16, 2009 at 9:26 am #

    Guinness beer is better in Dublin!
    Drop by anytime!

    Málaga (South of Spain).

    93 miles from Europe’s Southernmost Ski Resort (Sierra Nevada).

    94 miles from Europe’s Wind Capital (Tarifa). Paradise for windsurfers and kitesurfers and a short leap to Morocco. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the lifestyle, the food and the culture around.

    Sounds like an awesome idea, but I don’t “Twitter.” Just call me a Luddite, but I have too many streams of information already. :(

  51. David Price March 16, 2009 at 8:22 pm #

    I’ll be keeping an eye out for you in Illinois’ heartland (Peoria).

  53. Matthew Saville March 17, 2009 at 12:11 am #

    This is exactly the kind of friendship I’m really enjoying right now. Meeting up, hanging out, shooting, going on adventures, riding, jumping, (hucking dirt jumps, that is) …It’s all part of LIFE!

    =Matt=

    Cool… Brilliant! I hope you get the chance to stop by the Washington, DC area or to concide in one of my trips. It sucks to be away from home and @ be forced to say @ a crowded restaurant “table for one, please”. Looking forward to the chance!

  74. etherealshadows May 18, 2009 at 4:35 pm #

    I, unfortunately, currently reside in Charleston, West Virginia. I have been an admirer of yours for a while…not only because of your photographic work, but because of your philosophy background and because you made a really big something out of nothing. I would jump at any chance to hang and chill with you, but West Virginia is a small dot on the larger map of the world. However, come nearby, and I’ll be there, even if I only have the chance to listen to whatever you may have to say. Follow me on Twitter @etherealshadows, or check out my (rather weak) work at http://www.belle-immagini.com or http://www.subtleshadows.com.

  79. FherGarcía May 18, 2009 at 6:25 pm #

    if you come to the south of Texas… (border with México) or Tamaulipas, Mexico… I invite you the Tacos and Tequilas.

    Greetings from Mexico.

  82. Danie Nel May 19, 2009 at 6:50 am #

    When you’re coming to South Africa in June/July (?), I might fly to Johannesburg for a day at the expo and might see you, but since you’re in SA, I assume you’ll be making a turn in Cape Town, I’ll be glad to team up here with other industry chaps for a coffee/beers/wine, whatever.

  83. Troels Graugaard May 19, 2009 at 8:45 am #

    Denmark is the place to be..! If you ever come over here, I’ll teach you a thing or two about high-end commercial photography:)…

    Summer Season is coming. Now could be an acceptable 2nd so that you can guide your personal the scorching months trips, need to be certain at this second you are heading to get exceptional very low expense and you just can dedicate amazing low cost vacations to Turkey that is supplying this type of deals meant for earlier booking.
