3 Thoughts on “Don’t Miss the Tech Playground at Midwinter

  1. when i first glanced at the heading of this blog post, i thought it said “Don’t mess with the tech playground”. i thought, hey that’s a very cool way of drawing people into the post. 😀

    Anyways, this is going to be so cool that nobody can mess with it hehe

  2. The variety of tech we are all going to be able to explore during the evening is really amazing. I can’t decide which sounds most fun – the avatars, America’s Next Top Booktalker, Twitter, the DS, the Flip…. OMG!

  3. the SMS scavenger hunt!! I can’t wait for that one!!!!
