october’s local tech events

fall is my favorite season.. but it seems to fly by the fastest. probably because it’s so jam packed with events. there were many others but here are just a few photos from some recent local tech events in the dc-area: blog potomac, twtrcon and a couple from last night’s “living proof” event put on by the gates foundation. note the tears of sadness and funeral garb for blog potomac’s last event. and of course, we collected a few thankfulfor statements along the way…
