Well hello there my oh-so-lovely #socent. Daniel D'Alonzo here. How are ya on this fine day? (yes, by all means, I hope you hit ‘reply’, and tell me about your day. As long as it’s not a boring story. Ha! Just playing :) 
I bought my ticket to this weekend’s Techstars Impact Ventures Startup Weekend in New York City. Are you familiar with Startup Weekend? If not, perhaps you’ll want to start here.

Just be sure to bring the most important thing with you: a desire to meet like-minded people who share your passion to innovate creative solutions that make the world a better place. Oh, and don’t forget your ticket.
Sincerely,
Daniel

When you’re in the business of needing to do more with less, it’s critical to create effective documentation - knowledgebases of information - that lets you provide answers to users, customers, and stakeholder’s questions before they have a chance to ask them.
