Did you ever want to chase Kevin down a busy street in San Francisco, or even better, appear on the cover of a national magazine doing so? Now’s yer chance!
Join the Digg crew for Friday afternoon beers and a permitted romp down the streets of San Francisco. Meet up at 3rd and Townsend this Friday 9/19, between the hours of 3:00pm and 7:00pm to enjoy a frosty pint with the Web 2.0 set. There will be crossing guards, barricades, Digg swag and free drink tickets for the folks that RSVP here! We will meet during and afterwards at a nearby bar (to be announced).
So Digg is going to buy me and some fellow Digg users a beer for wearing our shirts and chasing Kevin Rose down the street. This is exactly what they do in pop videos to make the pop star singer seem popular by paying a bunch of teenage girls to chase him down the street. I’m not saying this was Kevin Rose’s idea or that he even wants to do this. I like Kevin a lot and think he is an awesome guy but this idea is just dumb.
Unfortunately, I’m sure over 250 people will show up as with any Digg meet up. I just hope the fanboys behave themselves. Of course, I won’t be attending this because I’d rather chat with Kevin at a party and talk like normal people instead of going to some photoshoot and pretend that I’m in love with him.
