This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 1/6


Dia de Los Reyes, originally uploaded by erensanpedro


Happy 12th Day of Christmas. January 6th is traditionally celebrated as the day the Wise Men arrived in Bethlehem, and it is the famous 12th day of Christmas that gets sung about endlessly (without anybody knowing what it really means).

Anyway, this is an amazingly busy week. I plan on going to three of the events listed this week, and I would go to even more except they all seem to be scheduled at the same times. Hate when that happens.

I had posted a preview of this week's events last week. Some of the things that are new to the list this week, all on Tuesday: Sales and Marketing Executives of Philadelphia (SMEI) will host a "2008 Economic Outlook" at Maggiano's in King of Prussia; mediabistro.com is throwing an All-Media Party in Philly at Positano Coast at 212 Walnut; the Non-profit subgroup of GPSEG will have Todd Cohen speaking on applying sales skills to fundraising, at the Desmond Hotel; and, last but not least, The Hacktory (a child process of Make:Philly, or is it now the other way around?) will be holding its third monthly meeting at its new space at the Nonprofit Technology Resources center.

You will also notice that I've started putting links to the events to the calendars. I think all the links work, but you will find (as I have) that some organizations are really good about putting their event listings on the web and others, well, just aren't.

See you around...
