Welcome to the Bubble
Sung to Guns and Roses “Welcome to the Jungle”
Welcome to the bubble
We’ve got fun and games
We got everything you want,
and we know the names
We are the people that can find whoever you may need
If you got the ruby honey,
We got your VCs
In the bubble, Welcome to the bubble
watch it bring you to your na na na na na na na na knees, knees
My good friend Greg Narain and I are hosting a “network free” and “bubble free” bar crawl in San Francisco on 11/10.
The Crawl will take place on November 10th, 2006 at 6pm.
Here are the details:
The Bubble-Free Bar Crawl is a celebration of our sacrifice. This event is for everyone toiling late at night to launch their own startup and take a piece of the pie. Most importantly, it’s a time for you to bring all those who are supporting you out for a good time and a thank you.
I ran this post over at Social Media Club and felt it relevant to share with you here as well. I’ve also added a few additional pieces to keep it fresh and interesting for those who may follow both blogs.
It’s easy to get caught up in the rapidly evolving world of social media and sometimes I have to stop and remember that there’s a whole other world out there that thinks social media is a group of friendly journalists.

Grab a bottle of bubbles at your local Longs or RiteAid, get outside and commence blowing.
Try to make one very big bubble, gander, marvel at its size, call all of your friends to see it, and then, pop. Pop? That’s so 1.0.
Now, do it again…but, be careful…don’t let this one pop. Instead of filling it with air, try injecting a bit of hope and enthusiasm into each blow.
The August STIRR mixer was held last night at Blue Chalk in Palo Alto and it was a HOT event – literally. No A/C on a hot August night…but still, the place was packed until the very end.

This was STIRR’s fifth event and appeared to be its biggest to date. What sets STIRR apart is that it is an effective mix of “live” social and business networking among a highly qualified crowd of tech innovators, Web 2.0 execs, entreprenuers, VCs, bloggers, and journalists. Kudos to the STIRR team:
