Ashton Kutcher, lover of Twitter and Chatroulette, and chronic over-sharer stopped by the foursquare party at Cedar Street Courtyard, where is presence was immediately tweeted and tumbl'd by the excited crowd. Did you know that if Kutcher blesses your start-up, it's destined for greatness? Pretty soon tech geeks are gonna start making pilgrimages to his house in Idaho.

The good people at Gawker media really know how to please their audience. They hired actors to dress up like Star Wars characters and even had staged light saber fights. The attendees look as if they've died and gone to heaven. The Tumblr party didn't have actors, but that's ok; guests brought their own Light Sabers to the event. The Blip.tv party Digital Speakeasy was relatively more subdued, but revelers were no doubt exhausted from defending the empire...
