This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 11/11

Lots of events coming up this week in Philadelphia. You might notice that the format of the list is a little different this week. I'm experimenting a bit, and the list you see here is pulled directly out of the Google calendar of events for Philadelphia networking that I told you about last Sunday. You can find more details on the events in the Google or the iCal version of the calendar of events for Philadelphia networking, and they should transfer fairly easily into your Google or iCal-compatible calendar.
