Tonight I went to the 2nd Annual MegaTweetUp at the Microsoft NERD Center in Cambridge. I attended MegaTweetUp last year and while I was there I took a ton of photos of people who won prizes. This year event organizer and all around awesome guy, Joselin Mane (@JoselinMane), asked me to be official photographer for the night. It was a lot of fun.
I rode into Boston with Bruce K. Garber (@BruceKGarber). We had a great conversation up and back. Bruce is one of the founders of Southern New England Media Makers. Bruce is a real interesting guy and he live streamed the entire MegaTweetUp. He had a great setup too and he did some on the spot interviews with some really fun people.
I also got to meet Lane Sutton (@KidCriticUSA), a social media powerhouse, and he is only 14. This guy is making great stride in social media and he was part of the group that captured the real social media reach and impact of MegaTweetUp. Lane has posted some preliminary findings on SlideShare already.
Part of my responsibilities at the event was to photograph all of the raffle prizes and prize winners. I spent a lot of time with Trish (@trishofthetrade) and Nancy (@NancyTWS), some great people who managed the volunteers and kept things running.
At the event there were a ton of great sponsors like my favorite burrito place, Boloco. (Yes it is my favorite now, they converted me thanks to CEO John Pepper (@boloco)). I had a fantastic Steak Burrito that was so tasty.
At the event there were so many mini cupcakes with 500 written on them in icing. That was because MegaTweetUp was the 500th event at Microsoft NERD.
So many cool things were happening last night at the MegaTweetUp and I am sure I missed 75% of it too. There will be other Recaps and I will try and link to all of them on this post as I find them. It was nice meeting so many great people at the event and I look forward to seeing everyone again soon.
