Fast talking filmmakers and Fins

While the rest of the town was fast talking about wireless and content delivery solutions, Fast Company was talking about "Community Service for the Over-Committed - How Can We Best Give Back" at Doubleclick's offices on 33rd Street. And on the other end of the spectrum, RsvpNYCity and Skyy Vodka hosted an exclusive event celebrating short form cinema for the SKYY Vodka Short Film Awards at the Lansky Lounge on the Lower East Side. And back uptown again, OmniSky was entertaining gadget-lovers at Light on Park and 54th. The Grimaldi Group hosted a panel discussion and networking cocktail party on the Finland-U.S. Wireless Connection. Sponsored by FinPro and Holtron, the event gave guests speaches from Proximity, Result Venture and Thin Air Apps, while the gurgle of foam trickled down the lava walls at the Lava Lounge. One thing's for certain-wireless is hot and making permanent marks, like Lava! There was a great turnout and lots of talented Fins and Americans exchanging cards and enjoying the atmosphere.
