The third Brooklyn Beta, organized by my studiomates Cameron and Chris, is currently happening three blocks away from my apartment. This morning, on my way to get coffee, I bumped into several familiar faces that I usually only see virtually on the various social media channels. Quite Surreal! Brooklyn Beta feels as if my Twitter stream has come to life. Look, real people, not pixels!

If you want to follow the #BrooklynBeta Hashtag for the remaining 1.5 days of the conference, you should check out this tagboard page. It aggregates all content hashtagged #BrooklynBeta from Twitter, Instagram, App Net and Facebook. Nifty!

Also, if you’re in NYC but didn’t get tickets to the actual conference, check out the Beyond Beta schedule. So much good stuff happening!
