My good friend Sarah Meyers from D7TV sent her live coverage from Yahoo‘s Holiday Party in San Mateo. Unfortunately she didn’t score an interview with American Idol’s 4th runner-up, Chris Daughtry, who was actually the star attraction for the event.
According to Sarah, “I had a wild ride at the Yahoo Christmas party where I was almost arrested. I chatted with the rumored CEO to be, now CFO, Sue Decker, put my D7TV business card in her hand, and then with the CEO, Terry Semel, moments before security removed me from the dance floor.”

We’re just one week away from our Pre-Launch party here at bub.blicio.us. Our order of postcards have just arrived and we’ll be sprinkling them around over the next week in preparation for the Big Party.
Nothing short of a packed house will do, so come one, come all, COME ON!
In case you don’t remember just what the Bastard Christmas Party is all about, here’s the description. RSVP soon!
With December comes the holidays. While most enjoy spending time with their familes, digesting their massive dinners and unwrapping gifts, a select few of us shiver ourselves to sleep alone. Not any more.
The Bastard Christmas Party celebrates our lives away from our familes. No crying babies, no annoying cousins, no long-lost aunts and uncles. We like to think of it as Egg Nog for the Remainder. A tribute to all of those who had the good sense to avoid the holiday shopping lines and the crowded airports and highways. Sure, we’re bastards – but we’re entitled.
Join us for the Christmas Party designed just for you, you selfish bastard There won’t be any gifts, and anyone seen wearing a Santa Hat will be shot. What we will have is a mix of people even Santa can’t forget. There will be drinking and plenty of “missletoe” for your enjoyment.
To add a little twist to the mix, we’ll also be celebrating the birfday of our good friend and contributor, Brian Solis.
This jam is being brought to you by the fine folks at bub.blicio.us. Our ears will be delightfully entertained by (dj) Mr. Grant and other talented elves.

For the Pikeo Launch party I found myself at Adobe, the old Macromedia building in San Francisco. It was swanky affair, with men in white chef hats serving numerous Hors D’oeuvres while free flowing wine and beer ensured that everyone would mingle throughout the night.

Unfortunately it was an invite only and was limited to mostly Adobe folks who sponsored Pikeo. Adobe’s Flex and Flash tools were used in Pikeo by France Telecom folks who spearheaded the development in both France and in San Francisco.
The demo of the product appeared similar to Flickr with tagging, smart albums, slide shows, and more. Charles, Carlos and Ilam were Adobe guys in the mobile group, but happy to partake in the celebrations. Talking to Shilo, an expert on the Adobe Flex technology, the hope is that Pikeo is just the first of many products to be launched using their tools.
Pikeo is unique in that it is based in English, Spanish, and French. The company is also emphasizing mapping as the most important and differentiated feature.
