    Shawn did an absolutely fabulous job demonstrating the value of properly utilizing Facebook. If anyone could forward me or post the link that Sean gave for that presentation I would appreciate it.

    I thought there were some good techniques shown by Sean. I will be trying some of the ones shown on my website.

    Great presentation from Sean Blanda -- a good speaker with a very informative and insight message to share.

    Organizationally, Brad Williams and Doug Stewart continue to impress me with the professionalism of the Philly WordPress events.

    Sean did a great job explaining how to use Facebook for promotion. Good notes, straight answers.

    It was a great topic with lots of good info. Unfortunately, it was a bit of a challenge course to find parking in the medical maze, and if you were (like me) a few minutes late and had to sit in the back, it was very hard to hear/follow. Was there a working mike?

    I'm standing outside on the sidewalk across from Colket if anyone needs a landmark. Black overcoat by the planters.

    I'm so disappointed! Last minute change of plans means I can't make it to the Meet-Up tonight. :-( Enjoy everyone!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
