Mark your calendar now for our annual holiday party at Deuce on the 13th of December. Last year was a huge success and we’re expecting an even better turnout this go ‘round.

Please pre-register if you’re thinking about coming so we make sure we have enough food:

‘Twas December 13th and inside of Deuce
I twittered my friends “I’m in the back booth”;
The glasses were clinking with holiday cheer,
And hope ran eternal you soon would be here;
The annual party was just gaining steam
With folks drinking Mojitos and checking imeem;

With a laptop online and a glass of eggnog
I had just settled down to draft my new blog,
When out on the patio there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bistro to see what’s the matter.
My friends from PANMA? I ran to the door!

‘Fix some drinks’ I yelled and the barkeep did pour.
Alas, all I saw was my Blackberry’s glow
And my thoughts drifted back to Web 2.0
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But eight board members and Wil Reynolds from Seer!
With cold breath adrift I could hardly wait,
And sure enough… there was also St. Nate

His MySpace friend list it seemed they all came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
“Now, Susan! now, Johnny! now, Reed and Matt Fisher!
On, Bart! on Staci! on, Don and! John Suder!
Go past the dining room to the back of the bar!
Now dash away quickly the party’s not far!”

So back through Deuce and hors d’oeuvres we ran,
Thanking HostMySite our sponsor (hey, we’re big fans).
We laughed and mingled and networked all night
Exchanged emails, numbers and of course Web sites
Of McNabb or Feeley we chose not to bicker
The talk instead was of Viddler and Flickr

At the end of the eve the crew gathered round
Great contacts made and new friends had been found
One last parting wish was shared under moonlight
“Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good-night.”
