Door64 had a party at Austin 360 Condos on Thursday, August 20.Â It was packed.Â It was a $10 cover and 2 drink tickets in a gorgeous setting on the 9th floor where the pool and observation deck are located.Â Since it was a hot, steamy Austin night and there was a “no drinks” sign at the entrance to the pool, most people crowded into the long, narrow inside space where it was cool.Â It’s quite the luxury condo, with a mini movie theater at one end of the space and a bar at the other end.Â Matt Genovese, how did you swing such a cool venue? By the way, you don’t need pronounce the e at the end of Matt’s last name.
We weren’t able to interview much because of the noise level, so it’s mostly just pictures of people at the event.Â Maybe you can spot yourself if you were there. It was a great networking event, I ran in to Heather Havenwood, who did my SXSW interviews, and Meg Strout who was acompanied by a power auto seller Aaron Smith with Motorphilia, and Conversion Scientist Brian MasseyÂ to name a few.Â Â I told Meg to check out Aardvark, because she asked me what was hot right now and I just had a foray in to this new “ask your social network” app yesterday.Â
You can also see this video on Metacafe, Blip.tv and Veoh and I encourage youÂ to rate it up and review it if you like it.Â And if you’re in the video, drop me a note and I’ll include you in the blog post, (note at how many minutes in to the video you appear).
Paul Terry Walhus, the AustinBlogger, got 5 seconds of fame on CNN by having his twitter post put up on the CNN big screen. His twitter name is springnet. He asked about the effect of the new economic package on the mortgage holder with a high interest rate. The answer? We’ll get back to you.
