Meetup in NYC, next Thurs

Friday, July 24, 2009 by Dave Winer.

A picture named lunch.jpgWhen I have new tech to talk about I love to do what I call a "roadshow." I take the idea to some other city and have a meetup with anyone who's interested. Last time, when I lived in Florida, I did meetups in NYC, Toronto and Berkeley.  Permalink to this paragraph

Now with rssCloud beginning a bootstrap, it's time for another roadshow, this one in NYC, at the same place as the 2005 meeting. Permalink to this paragraph

Next Thursday, July 30 at 6:30PM at the offices of Ritchie Capital, 747 Third Ave at 46th, 38th floor. We have a big conference room with a midtown view and a rooftop patio, the meetup should go for a couple of hours, then if people want to go out for a bite, let's go.  Permalink to this paragraph

Already have confirmation that some of the most interesting people from NY tech will be there. If you know you'll be there, please post a comment below. Permalink to this paragraph

BTW, thanks to Thane Ritchie for allowing us the space. The investment world has been through some hard times, as has tech, and it's great to see them still out there. His latest interest, I hear, is urban farming.  Permalink to this paragraph
