Co-Hosted by CMJ & The Bloom Effect Our CMJ 2008 digital press conference was not really a digital press conference at all this year. This year our Digital Press Conference was done as a CMJ Media Meet-n-Greet for all invited and badge-holding bloggers, journalists, writers and photographers! The mixer featured performances by Sarah White and a DJ set from the Beatards. We also had complimentary drinks courtesy of Sparks, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and Makers Mark. The Beatards were awesome and spun some amazing old school Hip Hop . I couldn’t really hear anyone that was talking to me, and the club was fantastically dark but I sure had fun!  We had tons of local, national and international media & bloggers, unite for this event and they all got a chance to mix and mingle with their media peers. We took some great photos of everyone in attendance that you will find on our flickr site: Our next digital press conference will take place in January, but I wanted to thank CMJ for letting us co-host an event with them as well as The Bloom Effect, and also thanks to the other Ariel, the owner of Sutra, for her hospitality. Thanks to all who were able to attend!
