Live Blog: Fitbit Boston @ BostonTechJam

Boston TechJam
City Hall Plaza, Boston, MA
Thursday, June 11, 2015 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm

I've always liked getting involved, so when I heard that Fitbit-Boston managed to get a booth last minute at @BostonTechJam I signed up immediately!

I volunteered to help pack up the truck, go down to the site here at Boston's City Hall Plaza here in Government Center, set up, and staff the booth.

I will be live blogging the event! Stop by this page throughout the day, and I will be posting pictures and updates about my experience here. Feel free to come by, take pictures, and tag me in them. On Twitter I am @tjmaher1.



12:09 PM: Setting up the Booth

After a long traffic-filled ride from the office, we unload the truck and start setting up. Come on down! We are in Booth 16.


Ready for setup!


And I am ready for my close up! #FitbitSelfie!

1:45 PM: Setting up the Banner


After a quick lunchbreak, and a quick trip to get zip ties for the Fitbit banner, we started setting up the booth.

The little Drew Carrey-like decal on my MacBook? My wife bought me that for my birthday!

It's a windy day! Let's hope the bottles stay up!

5:09 PM: Wandering around @BostonTechJam



7:00 PM: Fitbit is mobbed

In spite of being way too close to the stage, our booth is mobbed, with everyone crowding around to put in their guess on how many steps Fitbit recorded for Massachusetts for the month of May. 


8:28 PM: Wrap up


By the end of the night, over 150 people submitted answers to our trivia question!

Question for the Fitbit Giveaway: Guess how many steps Massachusetts tracked with Fitbit in May.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him +15068001647 blog: spiritualherbal.blogspot.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS
