Last night I attended a really fab event hosted by @photojunkie & @casiestewart. The event was called GEN Y TO, a place for fellow twitter-media-crazed-PR-HR-AD geeks to get together and see if they can actually carry a conversation over 140 characters long. Although I never got a chance to chat to everyone, I did manage to meet some amazing people, and of course, have an amazing evening.
I decided to not check my blackberry whilst attending the event, you know, kinda stick it to the [twitter] man and see if I can hold out. Even though all these people attending the event are tech enthusiasts it was [endearing?] to see how people would be having a conversation with someone, while not looking at them, buried deep into their iPHONE.
I, instead, took a different approach. I brought my pink moleskine, orange sharpie and got to work on getting me some TWITTERGRAPHS*.
Now, you may of thought it was lame, seeing as I could of pulled out my blackberry and simply added them [you] right then and there, but not only did I manage to break the ice, I managed to meet the people I set out to, who I find extremely interesting, talented and down right hilarious.
Watch out, maybe next time I’ll be asking you for your TWITTERGRAPH*.
Below are a few of the people I was dying to meet, people who inspire me, and people I met who made my evening.
Have a beautiful sun-filled weekend bunnies.
[I’ve created a noun peeps lol] TWITTERGRAPH* noun ; a sub-like autograph in the form of their handle taken from someone from the twitterverse to whom you met in person.
