Internet Freedom Bus Tour: Day 1: Startup Weekend: Iowa City

Last post I talked about Startup Weekend: Iowa City in general, and why I enjoyed it so much. But one thing I skipped out on was Sunday, the Day the Internet Showed Up.

[Editors note - I'm joining the Bus Tour because in January, I co-produced an anti-SOPA video called The Day The Lolcats Died. 700,000 views in a week, this was called The Protest Song of the Anti-SOPA Movement.

After this, I wanted to stay involved in fighting for issues I cared about, and started to develop Startup Weekend's Government vertical. In addition to having Gov't themed Startup Weekend events, we're trying to invite elected officials out to Startup Weekend's to help show them that startups and tech entrepreneurship is happening in their constituencies, and that it's something they need to care about.

Alexis announced the Bus Tour, and the Iowa City event happened to fit perfectly in their schedule. Once the Startup Weekend event was finished, I'm hopping on board the bus to travel with them the rest of the way!]

Hucka!!!!

On Where Pianos Roam

Last night I celebrated my birthday with a small handful of friends.  We all had dinner at the Big River Grille off of Broadway and across from the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Nashville.  Here are some photos: [caption id="attachment_153" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Me with my good friend Ben Wilson (He co-produced my album.)"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_154" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="My friends got me a couple of shots to down.
