happened on May 24th (I know, I know this post is late) at Geek Terminal here in Singapore and I was there!
Over 120 bloggers, social community leaders, industry commentators, web developers, tech enthusiasts, flickr-a-holics, twitter-o-holics, and young entrepreneurs got together to talk tech, business, web 2.0, social media, citizen journalism and of course,.. blogging.

(and Founder Uzyn
(Founder: Goon Yoke Ching), Stomp
(Managing Editor: Jennifer Lewis), Global Voices Online

and many, many more.
Joining me on the night were five more Microsoft-ies: Leon Brown

So what did us Microsoft types do at Blogout? Well we ate, drank, chatted, swapped name cards, networked, took photos, shot video and joined in on some fantastic group discussions.
There were some Windows Vista machines available for free play use (blogging, twittering etc.), Popfly mashups and Halo 2 goodness (yep - we had a copy). We also gave away a few copies of Windows Vista Ultimate, a handful of Xbox 360 games and some USB memory keys. Freebies: Hooray!!!Kevin "the cyborg" Lim
