SMC Louisville March '08 event recap
Had a great time at last night's Social Media Club event. This one, the group's third, was hosted by CNET and was meant to be more of a mixer/networking event. In addition to a variety of tasty snacks and beverages, we had two HDTVs pumping out XBOX 360 and Wii games.

Rock Band was a pretty big hit. I only sat in on a couple of sessions; however, there was steady stream of people willing to get their rock on.
