I was lucky enough to get a ride with a friend so I actually made it to the ContentNext Mixer in SF at the Palace Hotel last night. You might ask why I wanted to mingle in a ballroom filled with 500 geeks when I am both extremely short and hate big crowds, and the answer would be: I dig Rafat Ali.
Given this was the first SF event he’s done, there was no way I couldn’t go (even though no one would have noticed if I’d just stayed home.)
Pix are up here–they’re basically people standing around in a crowded ballroom, chatting away.
I saw a number of friends, and some former clients I haven’t talk with in waay too long, and left for home knowing the bubble–no matter what anyone says–is clearly still in full swing.
