With a little luck and some excellent timing (and if my recent eBay buyers pay up), I’ll have my brand new sub-notebook just in time for next Thursday’s Harrisburg bloggers / Twitter-users / new media meetup. The MSI Wind goes on sale here in the US at $399 for the Linux (SUSE) version and $499 for the Windows XP version. Look for it at Costco and Best Buy — as well as mail-order via Amazon and friends — starting this Monday 6/16/08.
This Thursday, 05/22/08, a handful of us local bloggers & Twitterers (is that the right word for Twitter users?) are getting together at Appalachian Brewing Company on Cameron Street for food, suds, and general camaraderie. We’ll be upstairs at the Abbey Bar, which means plenty of free WiFi and smoke-free air. The meetup is open to anyone from Central PA who partakes in any form of new media — blogs, podcasts, and what have you — along with all of our new-found local friends on Twitter. Things will get started at 6pm, and we’ll probably wrap up around 9.
