DC Area Friends, SmallBiz & Startups – Come to the 28Corridor Tweetup This Thurs #28ctweetupJanuary 11th, 2011 | Events,KikScore & KikReport,Small Business,Social Media | No Comments »
I talk to the Swami on my way home nearly every night from Herndon. No I do not talk to myself or my imaginary friend in the passenger seat (though if I had one, I would imagine I was sitting with Mike Holmgren and ask him when will the Browns return to relevance in the NFL?). The person that I talk to is the Social Media Swami, Shashi B. That call often begins on Route 28, right off the Dulles Toll Road and next to beautiful Dulles Airport. We typically chat about our day, what is going on with KikScore, how Shashi’s daughter (and Kikscore intern) Mitali is enjoying college as well as a host of other things. It allows us to catch up with each other during the nearly 40 minute drive home to our respective homes in the District and in Maryland.
So it is only fitting that Thursday, Shashi is organizing the first ever 28 Corridor Tweetup. That would be the same 28 that we drive on every day. For those not familiar with Route 28 in Northern Virginia, here are some “beautiful” aerial pics! The “excuse” (as if we need one!) for the tweetup is to get together to welcome the wonderful Lisa Byrne, @dceventjunkie, to Network Solutions (our co-sponsor from last year’s fantastic Social Commerce Camp). Lisa just started working on Shashi’s fantastic team last week.
As more folks started to tweet about the tweetup, it dawned on us that lets try to get area small businesses, startups, bloggers, nearby airport baggage handlers (bet they have some great stories!) and anyone else together to join us at Ned Devine’s in Herndon, VA for the tweetup. So please come on out on Thursday. We would love to see you there. Spread the word and tell your friends.
By the way here is some extra incentive, if we get more than 30 attendees, the Swami will sing the Lady Gaga song of the crowd’s choice (I hear there are a lot of people voting for Poker Face!”).
