Left last night to head over to the Digital Web Magazine party which I thought was on 6th between Congress & Colorado. I walked one way. Nope, not there. Walked the other way. Nope, not there. Walked back the first way, nope. So I walked back and asked the police standing in front of the Driscoll Hotel. They had no idea. Oh, THAT’s a good sign! So I went to ask inside the Driscoll, I figured they had a phone book or something I could look it up in. Uh, 8-9 blocks away. A bit of a walk from the Driscoll, but not too bad. Got there just as it was breaking up though after all that walking. Had a quick bite to eat and then headed over to the So New Media party.
Just as I walked in the door there it happened again. I hear someone say “Christine?” – and because it was off to the side I didn’t see who said it. It was Dave, another FilePile-r! Also with him was Tim. If I had to pick a “best part of the evening” it would be the time I spent talking with them – I really enjoyed it. (Even when Jay accidentally spilled his warm coffee on me. It was ok because it warmed me up!) While there I also got to meet Brian May, the Olympic blogger. I need to send him a copy of Evan on Call for Help since his blogs was one of the ones that they talked about. I also introduced myself to Evan as I passed by him. The group broke up there around midnight because the coffee shop was closing, and several people headed over to Polly Esthers while others went on to the Omni Bar. I decided to go back to Polly Esthers for the dancing this time. Kristin, Brian, Jish, Jay, Rob, Evan, Maggie and others were there. I had a good time… just some dancing to good music.
Today? Today my legs HURT. Thank goodness we are just walking to the Convention Center (a few blocks away) and then go to the various panels there! No more walking! More to come later … and pictures, I promise!
