Desperately Seeking...

...your presence at the following:
Rising Tide VI is coming very soon - August 27 - and we must pick your brains for ideas on programming, panel discussions, panelists, moderators, and all other subjects pertaining to the present and future of New Orleans. You do not need to be a blogger to come, either, so please join us on Tuesday, April 26 at 7:00 PM over at 21 Maryland Drive, aka, Casa Dangerblond.

Your presence is also requested at the same address for Geek Dinner V (yes, I know it's not VI, but. hey, we're catching up), also to be held at Casa Dangerblond. Her news blast concerning the details follows:
Geek Dinner time! We haven't had a Geek Dinner in a long time and we need to fix that situation.
For those who were not around the last time, the Geek Dinner is a potluck for anyone and everyone in the New Orleans online community. Many of us met at the first Geek Dinner. We started out with just bloggers, but now we have tweeters, facebookers and even those who write on paper with ink!
I am "hosting" at my house and everyone is invited to come.
It's Saturday, May 14 at 6:30 p.m..
21 Maryland Drive
New Orleans, LA
(Faux Metairie)

Let me know if you are coming so I will know how many paper plates to purchase. I hope all will attend, it's fun and the food is usually great.
Please let us know, in the comments below, if you will be coming to the programming meeting for Rising Tide VI. If not, give us your ideas in the comments.  Let us know, also, if you will be coming to Geek Dinner V and what you will be bringing.


  1. Hi guys, I wanted to first of all thank you for the Rising Tide events, which I have attended. I also wanted to propose that you reach out to the guy who does the SLABBED blog in MS. He has done work in Jefferson Parish (and to some extent Orleans, Plaquemines/Terrebonne, and St. Bernard) reminiscent of, and maybe beyond, what American Zombie did with the Meffert tech stories. He, "SOP", and his (now former) co-blogger "Nowdoucit", have performed incredible investigational work and exposes on insurance (particularly re: Katrina claims in LA & MS) and Jefferson Parish and Biloxi-area politics, especially concerning judicial and public corruption. Really, no one local has done for some time (if ever) what he has been doing the last two years. And this guy has sacrificed. I look at a lot of local blogs (have since Katrina) and you need to give your blogger of the year award to him, hands down.

  2. An open bar only charge for Bud Light to make up the difference.

  3. One large pan of chicken and sausage jambalaya!
