Today I was lucky enough to be an audience member at the live taping of HubSpot TV. Not only was it cool because Mike Volpe and Karen Rubin host, but today they hosted as the infamous Lucy and Ricky. But they weren’t the only ones in the holiday spirit, most of the staff was decked out in Halloween attire – from Jersey Shore to Scooby Doo to Pokey from Gumby. It was a sight to behold. Lets just say, I almost cried from laughing so hard. Awesome!

As I watched Mike and Karen, I realized how laid back and enjoyable HubSpot‘s atmosphere is. The team is very welcoming and friendly. And HubSpot TV is not only informative on current topics related to social media and inbound marketing, but it’s entertaining. I definitely intend to keep up with future episodes, as I’m officially impressed on how both Mike and Karen can capture the audience and keep their attention with such relevant topics and hilarious banter.

Cheers HubSpot, you Rock!

p.s. Want to see Photos from today….Flickr it up!

I know I haven’t blogged in a while…I could say it’s because I’ve been too busy working for a kickass marketing firm downtown, or that I’m having too much fun with friends and enjoying summer, or “fill in the blank” excuse. But, while I’ve been away from blogging I’ve attended a couple networking events here in Boston. Last week I attended the Mashable Meetup at the Landsdowne Pub, who my new friend Kristen Haley set up for us eager young networkers. What I found most interesting, was not the cool young marketing folks I met, but the different reasons people appeared to be the Pub on a lovely Wednesday evening…

1. The guy or girl who actually wants to network

2. The guy or girl who is pretending to network but is actually hoping to “meet” someone

3. The guy or girl who is bored and has nothing better to do and is pumped about the free apps and drink tickets

4. The sleaze hoping to get laid

5. All of the above

Which one was I? I’ll let you be the judge on that one. But I will say, I definitely don’t mind the free food, meeting new people in the small marketing sphere of Boston, and you can’t beat the 30 guys to 5 girls ratio.

Maybe we should rename networking events…got an idea? Lets spread the word and until next time, I’ll be looking for the next interesting “networking” event to attend.
