In a world where social media and online communications reign, Comcast believes Houston is in dire need of a virtual meeting place, one that gives prominence to the vox populi living in this mishmash of a megalopolis. But its success depends on one thing only: The activity of its members.

To enhance, grow and develop Houston's Voice, a cyperspace that's best compared to a hyper-local YouTube network, a meeting of the minds was held at The Strip House Wednesday. The luncheon/learning session, hosted by CultureMap, also served as a welcome for new channel partners, including SEARCH Homeless Services, 713News.com, NAC Film Theory and Houston on the Move. 

The assembly kicked off a push for more consumer engagement.

 

Bringing together content providers, content partners and potential contributors in conversation with Craig D'Agostini, senior director of government affairs at Comcast Houston, MWH public relations representative Margo E. Williams and marketing doyenne Michelle LeBlanc of Blue Sky Marketing, the assembly kicked off a push for more consumer engagement.

Among those taking part in the session (and enjoying a nice steak and/or vegetarian option) were Kim Hogstrom, Kim Lykins, Lydia Baehr, Sarah Pendley, Anita Long, Stephanie Saint Sanchez, Cyndi Garcia and Luis Sanchez.

Editor's note: CultureMap is a content partner for Houston's Voice. The Hidden Houston editorial series disseminates Houston's Voice content in an effort to reveal the many things that are unique about the Bayou City and its surrounding areas.
