It's no secret that I'm an event whore (wouldn't eventwhore.com be a great event site? Anyhow, I digress) I often get asked how people can keep track of what events are happening in Northern California. Not just Microsoft events, but others as well, like BarCamp, for example). The easiest way, is to add me as your friend on two of the best event-based social networks out there today - Upcoming and Socializr (I've only been using Socializr for a few weeks now).
Rest assured, if I'm doing or attending any events, I'll be sure to post it to these sites.
"ai"PS: I'll be doing Lunch 2.0 @ Socializr next week.
