IT in the D Media Madness Tonight, Events, Blogs, Concert Tickets and More
Well, this is going to be a fun little week of chaos and running around.
Sleep is highly over-rated, right?
So let’s talk some details…
Our next casual networking event for professionals in and around the metro Detroit information technology community takes place on Thursday, November 21st at Falling Down Beer Company.
Great place, looking forward to seeing everyone there.
If nothing else, we amuse ourselves there.
Now, once you’ve gotten that out of the way, you can start thinking about everything going on this week.
We’ve got our IT in the D broadcast tonight, and we’ll get to that momentarily.
Tomorrow night, there’s an event with the cool folks from the Great Lakes Technology Showcase down at Old Shillelagh. It starts at 8:00, and while it’s something a little out of the ordinary for us, it’s definitely got a targeted demographic. So hit our events page and read up on it.
And then on Friday night, there’s a nifty little anniversary party taking place. The ladies from Girl Develop It – Detroit are celebrating doing what they do for a year now with an event at Grand Circus. Again, check out the events page for details: http://www.ITinTheD.com/meet/
Tonight is our eighteenth episode of our IT in the D show, and we’ve got some fun guests lined up.
Cherry from Blue Argyle Media will be in-studio with us, as will Toscano Media…and possibly a third guest depending on how things work out.
If you’ve been to our last two Pink Slip Party events at St Andrews Hall, then you might recognize Cherry as the photographer who took some awesome shots at both events.
The Toscano Media folks have recently started up their own multimedia company, and we got to know them through a little side project Bob and I are involved in a bit.
As to the third…well, we’ll see how things shake out over the course of the day.
We’re also going to be kicking off a series of ticket giveaways to upcoming events at St Andrews Hall.
Tonight, we’ll be handing out a pair of tickets to The Devil Makes Three on Saturday, November 9th.

An oldie but oh-so-goody bubbled back up. It’s one of the first ones I ever wrote, and it still holds a ton of value – LinkedIn is Not a Video Game can be found at http://www.ITinTheD.com/20/linkedin-is-not-a-video-game/
You might not think that geeks and stand up comics have much in common. You’d be wrong. Read It’s Kind of a Funny Thing over at http://www.ITinTheD.com/3983/kind-of-a-funny-thing/ to find out why.
Nobody wants to suck at meetings. Read How Not To Suck at Meetings to make sure you don’t: http://www.ITinTheD.com/4947/how-not-to-suck-at-meetings/
