OK, so this is a first for me. As you might have guessed we over here at Metroblogging have officially launched this Miami branch as of this morning, but as Caryn mentioned the other day a few of us are actually in town making this is the first time I’ve ever been in a city (other than Los Angeles) when it’s metblog has come online. Since Miami is now the 37th city in the network and since Caryn and I are in town, and so is Johannes from Vienna, and so is our friend Tyler Green from DC (but still not from MBDC despite constant nagging) we figured that before the Art Fairs kick into action it might be cool to get some people together for drinks someplace in Miami Beach. Of course I haven’t bothered to confirm those details before making this post, but thougth I’d let you know the plans were in the works and the info will be posted here shortly. I’m also looking forward meeting the new metbloggers in person, and saying “Hi” and “Thanks” to some of the folks from Miamity, Critical Miami, The Next Few Hours, Artblog whose advice and support helped make this whole thing possible (and yeah, I know there’s a bunch of overlap there ).
Oh, yeah, Miami isn’t the only Metroblogging launch today – check out another new site from the other side of the world – Dubai!
