As those who follow my work in digital asset management know, I'm a huge booster of the DAM meetup movement. These informal gatherings of digital asset managers to talk in an environment free of vendor sales pitches are crucial to the development not only of personal professional growth, but to the DAM industry as a whole. DAM meetups are where we gather to exchange ideas, hash industry news, and talk about the regional DAM scene. This first live recording of the ATL DAM meetup group is posted here to give anyone who is interested a listen to what goes on at our meetings. The NYC DAM meetup sometimes releases recordings of their events on YouTube, and those have proven to be quite popular. I've also attended DAM meetups in Chicago and London, and I loved them all. There's nothing quite like really discussing digital asset management with others who really "get" what you're going on about, or why you're excited about digital asset management.

Here are links to the materials discussed in the recording:
