Blip’n'Beer

This one is pretty awes. @Yan forwarded an email from one of our DJs about a simultaneous Blip.fm meet up in multiple cities around the world.

 

The idea came about when a few of our Brazilian DJs got together at a local bar in São Paulo, Brazil. Diogo Matheus, one of the creators of Blip’n'Beer, says, “a few days ago some blippers felt like meeting each other, and went to a pub in São Paulo Brazil with the purpose to get to know each other, because we have only met in Blip.fm despite living in the same city.” Now the idea has ballooned into a multi-city affair. There’s a website (http://blipnbeer.com) with six confirmed cities (and a bunch more tentative) participating in the next meet up this Wednesday, November 19th (8:30pm). So far the list includes São Paulo, Rio, Santa Marta, Belo Horizonte, Medelin, New York and Cleveland but check the website to see if your city is listed. I’m not sure how the time difference is handled between time-zones, so make sure you connect with your city’s organizer to double check.

 

Unfortunately both of the engineers at Blip.fm (myself and @Yan) can’t make this Wednesday’s meet up, but we’re going to see if our CEO @Jeff can represent. Of course all future events will have a strong Blip.fm showing… and probably some Blip.fm schwag. If you have a suggestion for a local SF bar that might allow us to take over the PA and blast Blip.fm all night please let us know: feedback@blip.fm. Right now I’m thinking 21st Amendment might be a good spot, but other suggestions are welcomed.

 

It’s a huge honor for us that our users have put this together. Music is inherently a social lubricant and it’s not just limited to the online world. It’s great to see people getting together in local venues to have a brew and talk music. Make sure you mark your calendar for this Wednesday’s event and we’ll be sure to let you know about future Blip’n'beer meet ups as well.

Thanks for the support! Hope to see you all in the next blip’n'beer. For now the time zone won’t be taken in account, so maybe a party will begin when the other is ending, but this way we will have a whole blip’n'beer day! We want to put a live streaming of each party online for the next month.

To suggest music for the parties reply to @blipnbeer

cheers!

Our first intention was to join DJs and have some fun. Then we saw that lots of DJs had it in common. Then, we felt the responsibility of make this whole thing happen. The idea was there, the cities adhered and it became possible. And it all is going to happen because there’s a wonderful team that worked hard on this organization. Now the global gathering is about to work.

Congratulations to

@gigia AKA Maria Gabay, our creative power. Your wills, wishes and non-stop working made it grow up like this. My reverences for you.

@maujabur AKA Mauricio Jabur, a genius and a great guy. You’re a technology monster, man, and you made the things happen.

@Diordan AKA Diogo Matheus, our PR man, our master. How one simple guy can make so much things as you do? You’re fantastic, and your work gave us huge results.

This team is awesome.

Now, we just have to wait until Wednesday and see all the great things we’re expecting form this great blipper party.

Let’s make it happen!

Last days I’ve been experiencing the most aggressive viral action ever. It seems the idea to be a part of a global gathering excites people. But it’s not all. At least, not the key point. Personally, I’m not in any social network and when I joint to Blip.fm my main interest was the music only. But lately I start to discover people just like me and make friends, real friends, in despite we’ve never met before – this is the key point of all these exciting. Because music says a lot about yourself, people whit like same music is really alike.

We are all blippers, doing it together, a non payment job, a nonprofit work. We are making it happen just because it is funny to be with. for you all, thanks for your suppor.
