I emceed the TechNow09 conference last night. The panel presentation was outstanding and I was glad to be able to host that. It was also pretty impressive that they landed both Congressman Gary Peters and Oakland Country Treasurer-Elect, and the man behind the Michigan Movie incentives, Andy Meisner.
Apparently my duties were well received, I was even a notable quotable at a few points.
Here are some Tweets (boy I hate that word):
@rsmudge: @DanIzzo good job tonight. You had good stage presence.
@RyanMeray: Had a great time at #technow09! Got to meet @damnredhead, got coffee at Bean & Leah afterwards with @hcwlau, and dug @danizzo’s emceeing.
@RyanMeray: Dan Izzo – “Did they check you for the secret Apple tattoo?” #technow09
@RyanMeray: Dan izzo is awesome. #technow09
@RyanMeray: Dan Izzo drops the #tweetoprahcalypse awesome. #technow09
