After two awesome days at CollegeFest 2007 I learned many things about the team from PayPerPost and all of them positive. I was very fortunate to have been selected for this special assignment and took to it was as much enthusiasm that I could muster, and then I heaped on more. But it was so easy to be enthusiastic with such nice people to spend time with (The PayPerPost RockStars) and such nice people to meet and greet (The Students and other Exhibitors). I’d do this sort of thing all the time, my body would hate me for it but I’d enjoy the heck out of it all none-the-less. At CollegeFest 2007 I took over 1000 photos. Only about 163 made the grade in my book. Here is my set of photos from Flickr (Photos in the set are in Chronological Order over the two days) or if you prefer, Zooomr (There only seems to be 157 there, I have to figure that out). Descriptions and captions will be forthcoming. It is Monday and I am back to my real job and have a ton to do so for now, look at the pretty photos.
I wrote the following on the T on my way home last night.
Tonight after CollegeFest I went out to dinner with the RockStars of PayPerPost (Ashley, Britt, Marty, Travis and Shaun). We went to dinner at Dick’s Last Resort in Quincy Market. The wait staff was not nearly rude enough for our liking. Nope, they were actually tame. I promised rude. Oh well.
dinner was pretty tasty too. I got a bucket of ribs and wings. The bucket was fake only the top was used for food. Not near enough ribs and wings. However tasted pretty good. I enjoyed my dinner and the company was great.
Here are some photos from dinner.
We took the T there and back. On the way back I took video. That is only for me and my new PayPerPost friends. I will not be sharing that one.
As far as the weekend goes this was fantastic. I could not have had a better time at all. The students we fun. Some of the entertainers were great, some not to my liking but that is okay.
I made contacts with a bunch of companies and hope I helped stir up some PayPerPost advertiser interest. I also got to work my photography skills. There were many great subjects to photograph.
I like to think that I made some lasting impressions on the team from PayPerPost. The certainly made good impressions on me. Meeting people in real life means a lot. It is easy to think of people online as not real because of the nature of the anonymity of the online world. It was great to spend time with real people working at a job they truly believe in. I wish PayPerPost much success in the years to come and intend to keep blogging for them as often as possible. I will value the time spent at CollegeFest 2007 as a great experience and look forward to working with PayPerPost on anything like that in the future if they will have me back.
