So you know how weekdays can seem routine? You get up, shower, get dressed, drive to work, do your thing, go to lunch, do more of that thing, go home, watch TV, go to bed x 5 (intersperse exercise, personal development and significant others as needed). You know what I mean; even the best offices can become monotonous after a while. Until a challenge comes along; the ultimate test of man versus man. I’m sure you can imagine where I’m going with this…. That’s right, the cook off.

It’s funny how in a country with hundreds of millions of people, the world can seem really small through Social Media. This past Thursday, two members of Three Deep – Brandon Smith (aka @bg3dppc on Twitter) and Jeff Sauer (@jeffsauer) attended a gathering of Twitter users in the Twin Cities at an event called the Minneapolis Tweetup.
The event was held at the Bulldog in NE Minneapolis, which is one of the better restaurant/bars in the Twin Cities, and the promise of free food and cocktails made it an event not to be missed.
We met some great people at the event (@kareemy, @ddn, @swineheart, @paulmalenke to name a few) and called a successful event after about 2 hours – and decided to leave the happy hour around 8 PM. After driving home, I logged on to check my Twitter account and noticed some interesting news about the event:

In addition to our live Twittering the #OMS event in Minneapolis, several Three Deep team members recapped the top 3- 5 things they learned on Tuesday at the Online Marketing Summit. Below are our observations. To view presentations and education materials presented at the June 2nd, 2009 conference in Minneapolis at the Depot, please visit the OMS site.
I felt a little like Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting at this conference when he gets into a war of words at the “Haaavhaaad Baaaah” with a man who has far more formal education than he does. It turns out that for all of the formal education held by the Harvard man, he could have gotten the same amount of education for $1.50 in late charges at the local library. How do you like them apples?
