Staying on top of the latest and greatest technology / trend / site du jour while balancing the necessary daily tactical stuff can be a challenge. For me, one of the best ways to keep up is through social events with like minded folks.
I had the pleasure of sharing a more than healthy breakfast at Henrietta's Table this morning with just such a group. Thanks to John Wall for pulling the event together, and to C.C., Jenny, Lisa, Alyssa and Jeremiah for the conversations and laughs. Discussions were all over the place - from High speed internet propoganda, to a Facebook vs. LinkedIn debate, to Jenny's crazy little SLR lensey type thing that was getting attention from even the non-webby tables.
Coincidentally, Boston's Oktoberfest was taking place right outside of Henrietta's. After a larger than life breakfast, some of the group chose to check out the local museum scene, others to get home to the family while others walked the Oktoberfest event piling fried dough and Sam Adams into the same crowded space as the seven egg omelet... (Seriously, what's wrong with me??).
Thanks to all - Hope to see you at the big shindig on the 18th!
