This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 11/4


This is a busy week in the Calendar of Events for Philadelphia networking. It's going to be busy next week, but you'll get your rest on the week of Thanksgiving. Don't forget about Alex Hillman's social gathering at Indy Hall at 7 pm on Saturday, November 10.

I spent a few hours this weekend creating a Google Calendar for the Calendar of Events for Philadelphia networking. I'm only caught up with the first week in December, but all of November is in the calendar. I'm interested to get your feedback on it -- I want something that people can use to update iCal or Google Calendars, or even subscribe to RSS feeds of the calendar.


Now, to this week in Philadelphia:
