It's finally happening! After all these years of CrackBerrying it up, I'm finally going to the Mecca of BlackBerry... Waterloo, Ontario!!! Research In Motion announced yesterday that their Annual General Meeting of Shareholders will be held on July 12, and I've decided I need to be there to witness this pivotal moment in RIM's history. The flight and hotel are booked! Get ready for me Waterloo!!!!!
Full Disclosure: It's funny, I figured I would have to own some RIMM stock to be able to attend the Annual Shareholders Meeting, but after doing some research I discovered anybody can attend - you only need to own stock if you want to vote by proxy. That said, I want to be fully legitimate in my presence there, so I have gone ahead and purchased ONE share of RIMM. Hopefully nobody will think any less of my journalistic integrity. :)
So that's that. I'm going to Waterloo. I'm SUPER STOKED. Seriously, this is like Charlie going to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. This is going to be awesome.
