Just coming upstairs from the Pixelsilk Meet & Greet at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara. It was awesome!! When I first got there, I was asked to pick a sticker from the table. I found the one that matched up to me the best - Sadie.
Then I found a bar table and this great-looking girl, Julie, came up to me and asked me if I was alone. So was she! So we teamed up and started making new friends.
One of the SEO Inc. guys grabbed us and showed us this Skype webcam that was running on a laptop. The other end was Pixelsilk employees at a bar in their hometown. We were able to talk back and forth and have a great time. Ed Andrews, Chief Development Officer, from SEO Inc. was great and really engaging.
I also met Dan Kimball, Account Executive, from Omniture. His product sounds pretty interesting and I can't wait to stop by his booth tomorrow and check it out.
Also, Pixelsilk, the sponsor of the Meet & Greet (great food and drinks btw) has a new seo-friendly content management system that I plan to check out while I'm here. They gave us a really cool t-shirt, mints, pin and pen.
Okay, the reason for the sticker - it was a game. If you could put together a team that includes one of each of the six stickers and those team members could memorize what Pixelsilk software does for them, then you each win $50! And thanks to the guys from Kurios, Inc. (hope I spelled it correctly :)), he put together a winning team.

Tomorrow morning - 8 a.m. - I'm meeting Julie for breakfast and the day begins!!
