While out in San Francisco for the 2011 WWDC, we decided it was also time to celebrate our launch with a little gathering we put together at the W Hotel along with our friends at ArsTechnica. We had a fantastic turnout, delicious food and drink (check out the signature cocktails), a fun photo booth, pumping tunes and yes… even a Pilot along with flight attendants. These women stole the show as they shared the Idea Flight concept to guests using the app… and by the end of the night they had earned Platinum Elite Flyer Status as far as we were concerned.
The night couldn’t have happened without our colleagues at ArsTechnica, our new friends at the W–especially Mark Roberts, Velocity SF, our photographer Marla Aufmuth, Photoboof, DJ Justin Miller and Busy Beaver–who did our way cool buttons. Their creativity and our collaboration did not go unnoticed when ZDNet published this piece over the weekend giving us props for a great event. Thanks to all who came and followed our revelry on twitter. Missed the action? Follow us and be in the know next time.
