The highlight of Friday for me was the day blending into the evening’s festivities. We held the Tech Disruptor Showcase from 6 to… later than we should have. Barb, Jen and I all got to be in the store at the same time, which was awesome. Between the Cause-And-Effect machine going up, printers being taken apart and general activity on Abbot Kinney a pleasant sort of chaos filled the store.

There was taking apart and working on the secret project in the afternoon leading up to the showcase. The take-apart highlight – Two Apple Laptop DVD-ROMS, one with a tray and one without.
