Beer and Bloggers in Atlanta at ASTD

Continuing what has now become somewhat a tradition (see Beer Tasting at ASTD TechKnowledge, and Boston, Beer - Bloggers - Learn.com), I plan to informally get together with bloggers at the ASTD conference in Atlanta in June to go have a few beers. I just realized that's less than a month away. We'll do it on June 4th in the evening.

If you are planning to go to ASTD and you have a blog, drop me a comment. Or if you needed that extra little incentive to start a blog right now, this may be the trick.

Tony,

Sounds like a nice idea.. beer and bloggers.. My blog is http://lead2020.blogspot.com/ and I am currently trying to recruit twitter users who are attending ASTD to join me in a massive twitter colony experiment. Check out my latest post last night. See you in Atlanta..

Now I just know you are thinking of opening a bar in 2nd Life, for all of us in the UK to join in, even if we cannot be there 'in the flesh'. An along the way we could show you some real beers!

Have a great conference,

Mitch - I read about your planned experiment. Do you think you'll get uptake? Maybe we should combine efforts and get your Twitter folks to join us for beers.

I'll count you in for beers at least!

Martin - I'll let you know when we are drinking a beer so you can join us. Maybe another time we can do it in-person.

Martin,

I will immediately begin work constructing said bar on my lovely oceanfront property in Second Life (http://slurl.com/secondlife/myron/205/99/31/)

Would you prefer something a bit "pub-ish" or something you are more likely to encounter on holiday?

I am VERY jealous of y'all doing it again in Atlanta. Wish I could be there. Boston was outstanding!!! Unibroue is fabulous!!!

But I'm almost more excited about joining y'all from second life via Mark's ocean front property.

Make sure you have it in a location with wifi and you can also stream the event live over USTREAM with a webcam and a laptop.

I'm looking forward to it!!!

Brent - I wish you could be there. Hopefully someone is coming to Atlanta that knows how to do all that stuff you are talking about (while consuming beer).

Sign me up! I was bummed to have missed the last one in Boston since I was only there for the day, but I'll be in Atlanta for ASTD Sunday through Wednesday. Looking forward to it!

Martin- UK beer is incredible. How come your beer is so good?? What's the secret? And I don't just mean long pulls, which are, of course, fantastic. Even beer we can get here in the States, like Guinness, tastes better there. I guess closer to the source!
