Networking Event Tonight, IT in the D, Sharknado, Helping Kids, TOO MUCH STUFF GOING ON!
Okay, seriously…there’s too much going on right now.
Here’s what we’ve got to cover:
The latest IT in the D broadcast is live. We’ve got our casual networking event tonight. You still have time to help us help some kids tonight at the event. Sharknado will be on the screens in the back room tonight. Blogs. A benefit on Saturday night you should get to. Discussions in our LinkedIn group. Jobs.
So let’s get started…
As always though, we start with our next event.
TONIGHT! Thursday, July 18th.
Back room of the Blackfinn in Royal Oak.
5:01pm start time.
The details can be found at a variety of locations, depending on your preference.

Before you show up tonight, you’ve still got time to do a little last minute shopping at all of those Back to School sales that I can hardly even believe have already started so that you can help us help some kids tonight by bringing items for Operation: Kid Equip. For full details and the list of most-needed items, please click here: http://www.ITinTheD.com/5656/help-us-help-some-kids-next-thursday-night/
The social media phenomenon…Sharknado…
…will indeed be on the screens in the back room when it starts playing on SyFy tonight at 7pm!
Some of the best and coolest people in and around the metro Detroit information technology community.
The opportunity to help some kids.

My attempts to drive Bob into a blinding rage with my music selections for the evening.
Such a great time.
You can catch the quick recap of episode 7 here – http://www.ITinTheD.com/5686/it-in-the-d-episode-7-is-now-live/, and listen to it and all of our previous episodes through your browser, on iTunes, or through our RSS feed which are all available here http://www.ITinTheD.com/listen/
Scott Sabellico, who was in-studio with us for episode 6 of IT in the D, is involved with this fundraiser for the wife and son of Ben Konstantin, who unfortunately lost a battle with cancer.
Not the happiest of subjects, I know, but the benefit event has a ridiculous lineup of great comics ready to make you laugh your ass off, and it’s technically free.
Yes, technically free. You don’t have to buy tickets to go, and it’s just a “donate what cash you feel comfortable donating at the door” kind of thing.
So if you’re looking for something to do Saturday night, we ask that you give this some strong consideration as a contender.
