The Fun Stuff in San Diego

With ASAE Annual now over, reflection is necessary. I will say that this year's social aspects of the meeting were phenomenal. Great networking opportunities. Great receptions. Great parties. It was fun meeting some folks IRL (in real life)for the first time. I was also able to make many new friends that I am sure I will keep up with through the power of social media. That way when we get together next year, it will be like we never left. Here are my highlights:

- YAP 80s/90s Dance Party. Truly the party of the year. Too many photos are online that will incriminate many of us.
- Monday night reception hopping. Too many stops though. I need to pace myself.
- Food and Wine Classic. Very cool on the USS Midway. Thanks Boxwood.
- Closing Block Party. Great setup. Wish I could have stayed longer.
- Opening Reception. Nice beer tasting on the Embarcadero.
- Padres game. Petco Park is nice. It was also fun to see the Philly fans sulk.
- Last but not least, Fogdirog. Nuff said. (Check out the link)

Some other big launches at or around the show:
- ANPMP
- Social Fish
- A List Bloggers
