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.

We’ll see you at TechMixer tonight!

tmexpologoThere’s a rumor that Jason Donaldson, our newest staff member/intern/all-around nice guy, may actually make an appearance – there may be others too…

There’s another one that says that I’m giving away two (2) white Terminal Ts this evening at our TechMixer booth…

Both are true – though I’m not quite sure when Jason’s getting there.

Come on by, say hello, enter for the t-shirts… yeah, that’s about it. Well, that and check out the 68 booths and mingle with all of the other folks (at least 1200 signed up so far) at McWane Science Center tonight from 5-8 p.m. Here’s the program to guide you through (we’ll be there right when you walk in – look for the orange).

Did we mention it’s FREE?! You aren’t able to pre-register anymore, but it shouldn’t take that long to do so once you arrive tonight!
