Anil Dash Hosts a Sweet Event with DC's Digerati




    DC's digerati geeked out over cupcakes and conversation with legendary blogger and taste-maker Anil Dash at Georgetown's Baked & Wired for a Sweets & Tweets event last night.

    Promoting his concept of the "do" tank rather than the "Think" tank, Dash and some of his approximately 327,000 Twitter followers feel they may have hit the sweet spot of government interaction via new media.

    "My followers and friends are nerds," Dash confessed Wednesday night.

    And apparently nerds are sweet on the Nation's Capital.

    "Yep.  I'm an East Coast guy through and though," he said.  "I'm comfortable in shirts with collars, and I like people that act like grownups."
