Did I mention that there will be very special appetizers and lots of free wine at this event?


May bring some media designers in from Copenhagen...


I like that! The view is great of the bay from where we are having this at SFAI. :)


You went overboard sending this to groups. For example, I cannot see how this is related to the "blasthaus fans" group.


Yeah, seriously: kidproto, you are being a tool
