2009 Party Buzz Roundup

by Jason Preston on January 16, 2009

First, a heartfelt thanks to everyone who came to the party and made it such a great evening! The house was packed, the music was good, and the atmosphere was uplifting.

Thanks also to our incredible sponsors: AMD, Sony, MagicJack, LoveSac, Sonos, foneGEAR, AT&T CruiseCast, Truphone, and WordFrame.

As usual there’s no shortage of pictures, tweets, blog posts, and videos from the party. Here’s a roundup of the online buzz from the party so far.

Seriously, it’s a lot. Scroll at your own risk, I’m not paying for medical expenses caused by too much mouse-wheel activity:

From Blair Poloskey:

I also got to attend Robert Scoble’s ‘It won’t stay in Vegas’ party and I have to say, the folks at the Parnassus Group know how to put on a blogger event that is both fun and beneficial to the sponsors. I hate to see events like this explode in popularity, because inevitably they turn into junkets that are lacking on true networking and instead just table after table of demonstrations – but I am hoping the best for them, because this event was fantastic and a highlight to my time at CES. AND I won a Sonos multi-room music system – talk about great swag. The folks at Sonos are sending it this week and I cannot wait to try it out.

From Mike Coop:

With a half-hour left to go in the blogger party, it’s safe to say this has been one of my more enjoyable CES parties ever. Lots of folks who’re excited about consumer electronics, great vendor support (thanks!), and a totally enthusiastic vibe.

From Elisabeth Lewin:

Parnassus Group (and a bunch of sponsors) will be hosting the third annual “It Won’t Stay In Vegas” party during CES, Friday, January 9, at the Atomic Testing Museum. Promoters tout the attendance by and participation of Robert Scoble, as well as Gary Vaynerchuk, and Andru Edwards.

From Krista Neher:

By far the hottest party at CES09 was the “It Won’t Stay in Vegas” Blogger Party. The party was hosted by Parnassus Group and was a great way to wind-down after the chaos of the CES expo hall.

From Steve Garfield:

2009 “It Won’t Stay in Vegas” Blogger Party -Friday January 9, 2009 from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. Pre-registration required.

From Melissa Arseniuk:

Bloggerpalooza, aka the “It won’t stay in Vegas” blogger party at the Atomic Testing Museum from5 – 8 p.m. It is a closed event so if you don’t have an in, go complain about it on your blog.

From Lacy Kemp:

For those of you that attended the It Won’t Stay in Vegas party last Friday at CES, allow me to share with you the final playlist that YOU created. Thanks to everyone who submitted songs.

From Blair Poloskey:

attending the ‘It Won’t Stay In Vegas’ blogger party and sitting in on the Social Media Jungle super session – where all of my little blogging heroes will be speaking – I might actually get to meet a couple of them (I’m talking about you, Toeman).

From Matthew Norman:

You should have seen the Woot creative team, for example, utterly failing to work the room at last night’s “It Won’t Stay In Vegas” blogger party. All of us are natural wallflowers, much more comfortable cuddle-piling on a Lovesac brand beanbag than meeting new people.

From Smartalyx:

This year I am also excited about getting into the “It won’t stay in Vegas” blogger party. I have some ideas for projects and this will give me a chance to bounce them off some really good people.

From Jason Preston (hey, that’s me!):

I think everyone enjoyed the Sony gaming lounge–how could you not–and the Lovesac furniture surrounding the consoles provided some really serious lounging cred to the whole outfit.

From Robert:

5PM – 8PM: It Won’t Stay in Vegas (Invite Only)
Atomic Testing Museum

From Sascha:

Danach ab zur “It Won’t Stay in Vegas” Party im Atomic Testing Museum und wer rennt mich auf dem Weg zum Shuttle Bus fast ueber den Haufen?

From Mike Coop again:

Favorite reception/party: It Won’t Stay in Vegas, the blogger party at the Atomic Testing Museum. I had a ton of interesting conversations with bloggers and vendor sponsors from across the consumer electronics spectrum; look for upcoming reviews on Burton’s Acoustibuds, magicJack, Monster’s Outlets To Go, and more. I hope I make the cut again next year.

From Beth Blecherman:

It Won’t Stay in Vegas (well, mentioned just because it was a great blogger party!)

From Tom Foremski:

…then I have to pop into the marvelous Atomic Testing museum for the It Won’t Stay In Vegas blogger party; followed by a performance by Diana Ross thanks to Monster Cable celebrating its 30th anniversary…

From Rick at BlogWorld Expo:

As usual, they have an all star lineup of gadget and tech bloggers on the guest list, including Robert Scoble, Gary Vaynerchuk, Andru Edwards, and hundreds of other tech bloggers.

From Blair Cook:

Just got picked up from the Venetian on the LoveSac party bus heading to IWSIV – posting on WiFi from a bus on the Las Vegas strip – not a bad way to blog. Must go… there is a fridge full of beer about 6 feet away from me.

From Iris Media, in German again I think:

From the team at AMD:

Join Robert Scoble and the Parnassus Group at the AMD Sponsored “It Won’t Stay In Vegas” Blogger Party

From Maryam Scoble:

After picking their brains, it’s time to go out and party and the best place for bloggers to party in Vegas is at the Atomic Museum on Friday night where we’ll be throwing the ultimate Vegas blogger party from 5-8.

From Chris Byrd:

Friday night, it’s the It Won’t Stay in Vegas blogger party hosted by Robert Scoble. This promises to be an exciting event and a good time will be had by all for sure.
