So you’re a  social network wiz, smooth at ‘friending’ people, have thousands of ‘followers’ BUT the moment you’re in a crowded room or at a party with real people you find yourself freezing up like a PC  still running Windows 95.  Not sure if there’s an app to help that… but there is one place to learn how to hack into real social networks, real social circles.

The session is one of dozens being offered between June 11-June 20th during  DC Capital Week. The 10 day festival highlights technology, innovation and all things digital in DC.

WL talked with event organizer iStrategyLab’s Peter Corbett (2010 Young and Guest List) about the festival that’ll showcase DC’s digital talent. Here’s the preview of one week this summer you don’t wanna miss. Did someone say ‘Flash Picnic’ on the Mall? So cool.
