Damn that one looks fun. Too rich for my blood tho. Maybe I can come hang out for the parties ;-)

Yeah, too rich for my blood as well -- and I'm local to DC!

Actually, I suggested it on the weblogs-social-dc list, so we'll see if there's momentum for the idea.

Cool. Just talked to Kevin to confirm and we do have time free in the evening to have a meeting.

Yay! Back in May, I suggested to Joi Ito that he organize a blogger party around the Supernova Conference here in Washington. Looks like he thought it was a good idea: Blogger Party in DC!!... Read More
