The event is free to attend.

The guys over at Blacknight have offered to sponsor some drinks. So we will have free food and some free drinks .. what more can you ask for!

I thought it might be nice to give blacknight a plug.. so check out their offers over at http://getpersonalwith.me/. If you’re looking for a personal branded domain name then .me is the perfect choice. Nothing quite says you like .me . Blacknight for the win!

It would be great if you could invite some friends to register. :P more the merrier!  There will be finger food. Id really appreciate if everyone could give this one a big push!

Anothers Life brings the lives of others back to life

The lives of others was an experimental blog that was started back on March 18th 2008. What made this blog compelling was an anonymous format that provided the ultimate freedom to share or to speak, to mention the unmentionable and to explore feelings and emotion.
