Birthdays everywhere

Octagon Clock. Pam Morgan/FlickrIt’s been a fairly busy past few days so far as birthdays or anniversaries go.

Birmingham’s newspaper of record, The Birmingham News, celebrated 122 years of existence yesterday. The Birmingham Genealogical Society turns 51 today while BhamWiki marks four years of documenting the Birmingham district today (they decided to celebrate on Saturday).

Oh yeah… this site, The Terminal, turned three yesterday. We haven’t celebrated yet, though we’re looking for help to figure out how. I figured the best way to honor that yesterday was to write a post over on the site that led to its creation, Dre’s Ramblings (the new one) as opposed to the old one that still needs to come down (it has the same stuff after all)- and say thanks.

Help us shift gears starting tonight

We’re going to host a meeting this evening (Tuesday, June 2) at 5:30 p.m.upstairs at Shift WorkSpace (@2308 2nd Avenue North) for those interested in contributing to bhamterminal.com in all of the ways that you can think of (writing, photography, video, audio, etc.). 

We’ll talk a little bit about the direction that the site plans to go in the next few months and about interest in some long term projects that we’d like to implement. Plus, you get to see our new offices. You’ll want to come in through the door to the right of the main entrance. 

If you’ve got any questions in advance, drop us a line at info@bhamterminal.com.

Thanks for stopping by at TechMixer tonight

How about checking out our uStream?

We’ll be here until 8 p.m. tonight, giving away a few Terminal Ts and launching a new contest (sort of). We’ll hopefully see you here (or on camera at least).

UPDATE: Thanks for stopping by… For those that came by the booth at TechMixer, we’ll be announcing why we handed out those orange signs at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow.

Unfortunately, we could use this during rush hour…
