Whuffaoke or Bust.

Event Alert!

The Pittsburgh Tech Council is hosting the Pittsburgh leg of Tara Hunt's social media road trip, Whuffaoke Or Bust. (http://www.whuffaoke.com/ ) There will be a 27 ft Winnebago where we will encourage people to congregate hoping to discuss social media, whuffie, have a few beers, and sing karaoke. Pittsburgh's outstanding blogging community has put Pittsburgh as a stop on the tour. This is going to be great opportunity to spotlight the technological and entrepreneurial spirit that is thriving here despite this current global economic downturn. Join us for a great venue.
