The year started off with this bus ride where I made a lot of friends including Bob London @londonink and Cheryl Dickenson pictured here. Elizabeth Shea @eliz2shea of SpeakerboxPR was another organizer I had the good fortune to meet. Kim Hart @khart at that time with the Washington Post used my photos making it the first time that I got a mention in the Washington Post.
I broke the news of Anil Dash's announcing Six Apart's plugins for Word Press at Word Camp Mid-atlantic
Ken Yancey of SCORE.
Of course the crowning moment came with a picture in the Washington Biz Journal in this article Shashi Bellamkonda: The Social Listener by Jennifer Nyz Conner @jenconner
