MESH08 Day One (part 3)

The After-Party!

Yes, the evening of day one deserves it’s own post. Social Media Group (my employer, in case you’re new here) was very pleased to sponsor the major party of the conference on Wednesday night at Rockwood + Green.

Before that, however, I must mention the very nice social sponsored by – it was a great little networking event that allowed to unwind after a busy day.

The party itself was a smashing success and there a flickr set to prove it! My fave photo of the evening is this one of the host (Maggie) surrounded by the Mesh organizers.

A highlight of the evening for me was running into Erick Schonfeld, co-editor of TechCrunch. Our paths had crossed almost a year ago when Erick was an editor at Business 2.0 magazine and I led an ultimately unsuccessful fan-driven effort to save the magazine. It was great to meet Erick in person and chat with him about the experience from his perspective.

All in all, it was a great evening of socializing sandwiched between two days of great content.
