As part of our 10 years of CrackBerry celebration fun, I'm trying to bring as many BlackBerry fans together as I can. So far we've hit up Barcelona, Toronto, Winnipeg, Miami and NYC and we've had a blast in every city, giving attendees the opportunity to get an early hands-on look at the BlackBerry KEYone. I'll soon be announcing four more cities I'll be bringing the CrackBerry Meetup tour to in May!
Making CrackBerry Meetups Happen in More Cities!
I've realized two things from our meetups this year:
- It's about bringing BlackBerry fans together. As cool as it was for everyone to get to see the KEYone early, the best part is having a bunch of hardcore BlackBerry fans together in one room who can meet in real life and talk BlackBerry for a night.
- CrackBerry Kevin doesn't scale that well. Even living out of a suitcase for a couple of months, there are only so many places I can hit up.
Reflecting on those points, a light bulb went off. We could also have CrackBerry Meetups take place in cities where CrackBerry Kevin can't get to. We can find a volunteer or two in each city be our designated "CrackBerry Meetup Coordinator" and with the support of CrackBerry and our amazing community events/contests coordinator, Michelle Haag, we could bring meetups to life even if I can't be there in person (we'll send out a CB-Meetup-in-a-Box kit to our meetup coordinator, have an awesome prize to be given away at each meetup, etc.).
To that end, we're working hard on setting up a new program to help bring CrackBerry meetups to as many places as possible. Interested and want to stay in the loop? Fill out the form linked below and we'll send you more details!
