We Did It! Awesome Washington, DC No.1 on Forbes List Of America’s New Tech Hotspots

Washington DC tech hub

Back in December of 2009, Elias Shams launched AwesomeDC blog with mainly One MISSION to accomplish:  To wipe out  all those Politics, corruption, and scandals crap from the face of Washington, DC.  Then to position the Nation’s capital as a city of technology, partying, clubbing and fun! Mainly  as a Tech hub. Read the 2nd paragraph right below the video of his interview with CNN where he says “My intention with this blog is to show the world Washington, DC is much more than just Politics, corruption, and scandals. Frankly, I am not sure of that myself either, but I will try  I will be covering everything happening in awesome DC, with the focus on the technology, parties, clubs, events, and of course the awesome Washingtonians” Read more of this post

Washington, D.C. Not Branded as City of Politics, Corruptions, and Scandals anymore


Just to be clear, all three of them are still happening in DC, and they will continue to happen. However, given all the new Reality television shows which have invaded Washington, D.C., politics, corruptions, and scandals are the last thing coming to anyone’s mind these days.

Just in the last year alone, Washington, D.C., has played host to “The Real World” “Top Chef,” “DC Cupcakes“, the  up coming “Potomac River” and now the power-hungry White House-crashing cast members of “The Real Housewives of D.C.”

As a Washingtonian, I must admit that D.C. has suffered from a reputation of being a “9-5 city,” where most people live in Virginia and Maryland and commute in for work. Read more of this post

Washingtonian Tease – I Am Sureeee, Your Hand Just Happened To Land Right There


Not sure what to write about this one,  but to say even Washingtonian women are awesome!  Unfortunately, I didn’t have the pleasure to be there to take this artistic photo. A friend who had attended his corporate Christmas party in Mayflower hotel in Downtown DC last night, sent this to me. Apparently, these sexy ladies knew exactly how to drive us morons, men crazy.

I just wish I was there to offer them a cup of coffee in my place 😉 Damn! How could I miss such a party!!!

Anyway, aside from the politics, corruptions, and scandals, Washington is just soooooo pure and Awwwwwwwesome! Can’t you just see that?

Speaking of Mayflower Hotel, It is the one the New York governor, Eliot Spitzer shagged his high-priced call girl and lost his job over it.

I recall my company’s Christmas party in the same Hotel while with Yurie Systems back in 1997. Great memories from that party 🙂 Our company went public that year and was sold to Lucent for $1.23 B in March of 1998.  It was very rewarding to all employees.

The Hotel is right in Connecticut Ave and L Street just south of Dupont Circle.  Interested in staying in the Hotel, here is where you can learn more about it. I mean what more do you need to know. The NY governor had a blast there for years 🙂
