last night we went to the book party for nick bilton who just released his book, i live in the future & here's how it works.  i haven't read the book yet but am looking forward to it. 

the party was catered by sarah simmons.  watch out for her where books and a tv show is coming soon.  her food was delicious.

for me, it is really fun to go to the industry events.  for fred, not so much.  we left early because fred had something later in the evening he had to do.  he wanted to grab a bite beforehand so we went to dinner.  when we sat down he asked asked me if i would have stayed and just noshed until we had to go instead of doing dinner.  i said yes.  he said that he would have to and he enjoys speaking to all the people i enjoy seeing but did i happen to notice the person trying to button hole him when he was talking to someone.  i did. 

i have written about this before.  it is so unbelievable uncool when people button hole fred at a social gathering.  if you want to meet him, call his office, get involved in the discussions on his blog, send him an email ( and make it short and sweet ) but to take up his time and space at an event forces him to leave because he doesn't want to be an asshole.  it not only ruins his time, it ruins mine as well.

congratulations to nick.  he is such a great guy and i really hope his book is a big hit!
