My final SDTweetup will be this Wednesday, September 15.
Universal Pictures and Rogue Pictures approached me about having the group screen their new Facebook documentary, Catfish, and it seemed like a perfect opportunity to bring group members together one last time before I head off to San Francisco. We have a limited number of tickets -- 75 "admit two" tickets to be exact -- so if this Hitchcockian documentary about a Facebook relationship sounds intriguing, then RSVP asap.
This SDTweetup will also mark a changing of the guard. I recruited Peggy Gartin (@thepegisin) to take over the group, and she gladly accepted. There were several reasons why she was the obvious choice. She helped organize Cool As Ever Tech, she's a staple in the San Diego web/tech community and pretty much everyone I know loves her. We also became good friends through SDTweetup, so the choice seemed even more fitting. With Peggy at the helm, SDTweetup will continue to live on and connect San Diego's Twitter community in real life.
Organizing the SDTweetup has been an extremely rewarding experience. I've made new friends and new business connections, and I know many other group members can say the same. Everyone talks about San Diego as a sleepy tech community, but I think those of us who live here know otherwise, and SDTweetup helped to bring us together and spawn more great tweetups and meetups.
I hope you'll join us this Wednesday for a sneak peak at what looks to be a fantastic movie.
