Well.  I think we had a stunning success at the EFF-A/EFF/Creative Commons / Andrews Kurth / Polycot / Midas Networks / Joito Party last night.  Over 300 people came through the doors of El Sol y La Luna... hipsters, music-lovers, geeks, bloggers, lawyers, and movers and shakers of all shapes and sizes were mingling, enjoying delicious food and drink, and making merry until 10:30 or so when the party started thinning (as the food also thinned).

A combination of hitting the right mailing lists and being fairly aggressive with the attendees of SxSW was the right way to go.

I have to thank Sherry and Randy for their diligent door duty... with their help, we're actually going to be able to prove value in these activities.


NOW: There's ANOTHER party on Thursday night at 8:00 at Mekong river on 6th street (approximately 6th and Brazos).  Free FOOD / Free Beer!  Come one, come all.
