Digital Family Reunion – Thank You!
 
Here’s a letter/email I received from Brad and the folks at Digital Family Reunion.  I hope to see more of these events.

Hello,

We’re so grateful for everyone who came to the Digital Family Reunion last
Thursday and contributed to this extraordinary, one-a-of-kind event.

By bringing together important trade associations and social networking
groups
in the region, we were able to create a network of networks that helped
weave
a collage of the entire digital industry spectrum.  And the intention of
bringing together the generations of 1.0 and 2.0 couldn’t have been more
timely
as we begin to look into the future for our industry.

From all the amazing comments, we believe we’ve struck a nerve in the
community
and are likely to follow this up with at the very least an annual holiday
party.  We’re inviting ideas and suggestions, so please feel free to share
with
us your thoughts and feelings about what we brought forth and what you’d
like
to see locally and nationally from our efforts moving forward.

If you were unable to attend, our media partner, Tech Zulu wrote a
poignant
summary of what was undoubtedly an unforgettable event for those in the
room.

Also, check out so many great photos from the event at

If you were there and have photos or video from the
event, tag them #DFR2008 so Eventvue.com can find them.

As you know, we launched a social network for folks attending the event
which
ties in your Facebook, Linked In, Twitter accounts, called EventVue. It’s
pretty amazing.  Everyone who attended was pre-registered, but just in
case
you’ve not set up your page, the EventVue password resend
https://www.eventvue.com/resend

We encourage everyone to connect around your professional objectives.
That’s
what it’s all about. Also, it’s not too late to attend one of our
partner’s
networking events tonight.  Digital LA tonight MondayDec 15th 7-10pm
