For once, I managed to arrive early enough for an event this week. This week was jam packed with events – the Open Room event on Monday, the Cisco launch on Tuesday and now, the Podfire Launch on Wednesday!

Podfire is the baby of Miccheng, whose aim is to provide turn key solutions for podcasts and vidcasts. He’s just gotten Tech65 and the Geek Goddess show into his portfolio and is looking to provide better solutions for others who are interested in doing the same.

And like every other glamour event, here’s the who’s who (in the likes of Singapore Tatler).

We had the usual suspects present at the event – and because I do not know who wants to remain anonymous and who doesn’t, here’s a rough list in no particular order, of who’s there (at least from the photos): Bernard Leong, Derrick (sorry, I didn’t get your URL), Arzhou, Ren Hao (sorry, I also didn’t get your URL), Adam (yours too, if you blog), Uzyn, Nadnut, DK, Andrew Peters (erm, which URL should I use?), Jairus (sorry, I also didn’t get your URL), Claudia , Nicole, Mintea, Daphne Maia, Sabrina, Tian Hong, and Charlene (she doesn’t blog =P) just to name a few. Of course, Miccheng was there too since this event is his baby. 😉

I thought the event was rather good because (after Bernard Leong lowered our expectations in the background) sufficient skills were seen in the post production result of what they screened during the launch event. One comment though – the mic (microphone, not miccheng) might have to be adjusted (tweak, re-positioned, etc.) to give a balance in the vidcast. A few of us thought the Geek Goddess sounded 1 octave higher. Haha…

The food was ok. French fries, potato wedges, onion rings and spring rolls were served. However, I guess the highlight of the day was Danny’s customized drinks for the girls! Darn, I didn’t even get to taste any. =( Maybe… not friend enough =(

Looks nice right?! Too bad I didn’t get to try it. Shucks. =(

As with any event, there was lots and lots of interacting and mixing around. People around us are beginning to wake up to social media – in the good sense I hope. Maybe I’ll write something on it one day. =)

Following this wonderful event, we headed to our next destination – The Pump Room, which was quite a let down (yes, this form of social media do bring brands down – but I guess bloggers don’t lambast for the sake of bringing anything or anyone down; it’s just honest-to-honest views, just like what yebber hopes to bring about).

Stay tuned for Part 2! =) Meanwhile, Happy Labour Day! =)

    […] Food was onion rings, spring roll, sandwich, and potato wedges. It was alright, but of course, an event at Geek Terminal is not perfect without Danny’s coffee. As usual, Nicole never failed to manage to get Danny to stretch his creativity and come up with new drinks. I wonder what they were, since I didn’t get to drink them, but they sure look good (look at some of the photos in Jean’s blog). […]
