Upcoming Events — Digital Media, Damn Kids, The Cabal, and Let’s Drink for NOI

Hi folks, time for a quick plug for some upcoming events of note:

  • Looking a few weeks off, the Digital Media Conference will descend upon the AFI Theater in Silver Spring on June 22nd. It’s apparently “a ‘must-attend’ event for media, entertainment and technology businesses, investors, and policy-makers involved in the digital distribution of media and entertainment.” I’ll be there in full-schmooze mode; cocktail hour starts at 5:30.
  • If you can’t wait that long for your digital fix, head on over to The Future of Online Communications — Connecting with Young Voters on June 7th, sponsored by a slew of organizations including IPDI, Brookings and PR Newswire. I’ll be there to tell the kids to stay the hell off my lawn.
  • After that, we’ll all need some adult interaction, so don’t miss Hank Dearden and the Capital Cabal’s 2nd Tuesday New Media Happy Hour on June 12th. 80s music! Door prizes! Appetizers! What more could you want?
  • Me! Mmmm hmmmm, that’s what you could want (oh, baby)! But if you’re hankerin’ for a hunk of Delany on the 12th, look downtown: I’ll be at MCCXXIII (1223 for the Roman-numeral impaired) for a fundraiser on behalf of the New Organizing Institute. The low! low! price of $12 nets you a chance to hang out with a ton of cool folks while you support an organization that’s doing a terrific job training progressive online activists. If you can’t come, you can still donate online and store up good karma. But it’d be much more fun if you come by and spread the love on-site — the event runs 5:30-9:00, with sound and visuals by DC-based producers Reehee & Shred. C u there.
