Last night, Marie and I met up with MG Siegler from VentureBeat and Kristen Nicole from Mashable, and went to the Fast Company “Hot” party.
The club, Prana, felt a bit like a temple; square columns lining two sides of a nave-like dancefloor, all bathed in red light. The flames projected on the front stage made me feel like I was in the middle of some pagan ceremony. I half expected to see Scoble qiking the sacrifice of a virgin to the gods of print in order to keep the circs up. It took all my strength to prevent myself from running around with my Flip asking people when traditional media would die.
One of the highlights of the evening was meeting the lovely Brandee Barker, Director of Corporate Communications at Facebook. We chatted a bit about her new boss (he was on Brandee’s shortlist of potential bosses), and the differences between in-house and agency PR (she prefers in house). Brandee plans on checking out socialTNT. Hope she doesn’t get too upset with the Beacon post. I tried to stay constructive and not be a basher.

(PS: I happen to really like Fast Company and am completely thankful they invited me.)
Last night, Marie and I met with MG Siegler from VentureBeat to watch “Iron Man” at the TechCrunch screening. On our way out, we ran into Robert Scoble. Watch as we all review the movie.
I had a lot of fun at the Web 2.0 Expo. It was great meeting Twitter friends both new and old. For those who couldn’t make it, I posted some of me geeking out at various locations throughout the week. Enjoy!
