TECH cocktail 3 Announced

Wednesday, December 6th, 2006

TECH cocktail 3 has been announced! The festivities go down on January 25, 2007 at Amira (in the NBC Tower). I’m really looking forward to this event as I haven’t been disappointed yet. I’m not familiar with Amira, but hopefully it’s a little larger (space-wise) to accommodate the throngs of cocktailer’s that have been showing [...]

marusin.com stuffing #10.5

Sunday, October 15th, 2006

Yes, this is episode #10.5. Episode #10 was a lost cause (other than a surpise guest of my wife calling me while recording). Maybe you’ll hear pieces of it in a future “best of” (once we have some content that is deemed “best of” ~ we have a long way to go). In the meantime, [...]

Back From TechCocktail2

Thursday, October 12th, 2006

TechCocktail 2 was tonight at The Gramercy in Chicago and was another good time. I think I liked #1 better just for the fact that it was in a more-open space and wasn’t as jam packed. Boy, was it jam packed. Being that crowded is a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing [...]

Coming off of “a high” from Gnomedex, it’s nice to see this attitude carrying on locally… – The local crew has a couple of tricks up their sleeves which will be announced soon – TechCocktail [...]

Glad I made it to TECHcocktail

Friday, July 7th, 2006

Last night I made the trek last night to the inaugural TECHcocktail event in Chicago. For being such a big city, there never has seemed to be any sort of techy/webby/bloggy community that I was ever able to find. If you go back to the early years of marusin.com (we’re talking 2001ish ~ too lazy [...]
