Cool As Ever Tech SD Tweetup now FREE!


The next SD Tweetup on August 8th was already shaping up to be a doozy: the site is the Del Mar Racetrack, the entertainment is swing band Big Time Operator, and attendees will get private seating, private betting booths and tech swag galore. TechZulu is providing live streaming and will debut their show TechPunch with host Amanda Coolong there. Though the SD Tweetup had never charged for admission before, $35 seemed like a steal for such a great day at the races.

Would you believe it’s now free?


Editor and publisher of SDNN was just beta too?

sdnn-logoThe San Diego News Network launched last week creating buzz about a new, vibrant source for local San Diego news. Just the fact that such a site was launching at all, anywhere in this climate, was man-bites-dog enough to attract interest and attention.

The launch has been a soft one. To use the common web parlance, the site is ‘in beta,’ which means the site is rolling out features and content and also correcting bugs.

Apparently also in beta was’s founding executive editor and publisher, Ron James, who appears to have been ousted by the investors within a week of the site’s debut.
