Last night we went to the #HeraldTweetup at Tobacco Road. Richard arrived in style on his BMW motorcycle. I was saved from mistakingly parking my car in front of a fire hydrant and getting my car towed. The girl that saved me the $200+ tow fee had just suffered the consequence of an improperly displayed parking sign. Ok, back to the tweetup….
I had the chance to hang out with @TheRealEdwin who I had not talked to since Barcamp Miami in February when he made an appearance in our Barcamp Miami video. He did a good write up about last night’s Tweetup and included the Twitter names of many attendees. He also mentioned us in his blog post!
Here is an excerpt from Holy Crap My Hair is on Fire Blog:
Too many memories to recount so here are a few rapid fire ones. Some of the fun stuff was getting photography tips from Carlos Miller. Meeting Brad from the Fiesta Movement Project and talking about his massive sombrero while jumping like fools to the camera. Remembering everything from Hurricane Andrew, like how Rick Sanchez was balling on an overpass, or Brian Norcross‘ legendary radio broadcast warning people when to brace themselves, while talking with Lori and Yvette. The sadness of the night was forgetting to get my PALO! CD autographed and also forgetting to see if I fit in the Fiesta. Next time I swear! Getting to meet Steph Rose, and Lori Todd finally, the writer of Brickell Life, and again with the wonderful people behind GoLiveMiami.com. The epic talks of story telling, narration, tech, videography, photography, and everyone’s personal story was the highlight of the night. Also keep an eye out for a collaborative project between a few of the bloggers here in South Florida. I think it’ll be a fun read.Miami Herald Tweetup Round-up! #heraldtweetup
You should read the whole article and there is also a Flickr Pool Link.
I had a great time meeting @GoPalo and hope to see them play at Jazid on Friday. @AgustinaP and I talked about her appearance and disappearance from the Fuerza Bruta video. @Mricio gave me compelling reasons to attend the @SunSentinel Tweetup Thursday night. @TheDonz reminded me that he should win the free tickets to the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen screening coming up June 22nd. @TheRealEdwin reminded me that people read my blog through RSS feeds and don’t get to see all the new changes we have made to the Go Live Miami site in the last month. Definitely a good Tweetup with many more interesting conversations that I need to keep on the DL. heehee!
