Launch Party Vancouver3 Recap and Rockband Bonus Feature

Comments 12 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Last night over at the Lamplighter in Gastown over a hundred people mixed, mingled and shmoozed at Vancouver’s third Launch Party event, organized by the folks at Strutta.

It’s something I would have attended regardless but the night was extra special because we were getting together all of Vancouver’s Tech Women to Watch in 2008 for some photos, drinks, and good times. Duane was commissioned to take most of the shots and his work will be up soon on his website or Flickr. In the meantime, here are a few snaps from others that I’ve been able to find.

I had a wonderful night hanging out with familiar folks from some really great companies, meeting new people, making new connections, and being able to promote my site all while sporting a snazzy yet cheap new ‘do.

After Launch Party, and with the help of Monica, we ended up at Tanya’s for what pretty much turned into a Vancouver Twitter meetup. I got to experience Rock Band and it was a lovely end to the evening although I think I’m still recovering… from all the photos that have been taken at least.

    There was a twitter meetup (a “tweetup?”) and nobody invited me?

    Naw it wasn’t an official “Tweetup”, it just so happens that when I walked in Tanya’s door I met a couple people I had only previously known from Twitter.
