The Handshake Video premiered in a blog post on Handshake 2.0 on December 1, 2009. The Handshake Video premiered in public on the big screen at Bull & Bones Brewhaus and Grill at a Tweetup on Tuesday, December 1, 2009, from 6:00 PM to 6:03 PM, EST.
Z. Kelly Queijo wrote about attending the premiere of the "Handshake" video:
For most businesses, a web site and business cards are all that's required to represent a company, but for Anne, whose company is founded on harnessing the power of social communications by using today's technologies to connect regional businesses to the broader, global marketplace, web sites and business cards are not enough. It's a multi-channel world and having a multi-dimensional presence opens doors to more business opportunities. Handshake 2.0 facilitates making that happen.
What did I do at the Handshake premiere? I shook hands with people I met there for the first time. I shook hands with friends and business associates, and I introduced those I knew to people they did not know. It was a good night for handshakes 1.0 and 2.0.
The cast included Rob Martinez, Sean Moore, Kevin Allen and those from all over the world who shake hands when their paths happen to cross in Blacksburg, Virginia.
