re-scheduling dc media makers mashup meetup to attend awesome book launch for Rohit’s new release ‘personality not included’

Hello Fantastic DC Media Makers!

Re-scheduling May’s meetup
DC Media Makers Mashup Meetup -WILL NOT- meet May 1st but will be re-scheduled shortly.

And we all say: “That’s a bummer, why? why? why?”

It’s due to great opportunity.

Mere hours ago Livingston Communications announced a timely event for the local social media community.

On May 1st, it will launch the official book tour for social media expert Rohit Bhargava’s Personality Not Included. The book has received very strong reviews.

And Rohit will be on hand to sign copies that night with dinner & socializing to follow.

So run, not walk, to learn more & RSVP.

Since folks started to withdraw their DCMM/NPR reservations in order to attend Rohit’s celebration, we thought it best to re-schedule the mighty media mashup.

Another fun note
Many media makers will attend Rohit’s event with their tech trunks in tow to web stream, podcast, interview, and more.

So the media makin’ spirit will be in full swing.

Won’t you please join us…& RSVP with Livingston Communications?!

Thanks for your patience, enthusiasm, & involvement.

See you soon!
