Lunch 2.0 at Webtrends

Lunch 2.0 at Webtrends

Although I didn’t make it to the last Lunch 2.0, hosted by WebVisions at the Oregon Convention Center, I hear it was a good time.

I also hear the poor WebVisions volunteers were a bit flustered trying to check badges on unsuspecting lunch-goers. Sorry about that.

And poor Rick was operating at half capacity due to seasonal allergies. Poor guy.

Anyway, the Lunch 2.0s are fast and furious now that Summer is here. Not intentionally, but happily, at least if you like to hang out around town in the sunshine.

The next Lunch 2.0 is coming up fast. It’s June 4 (yes, that’s a Thursday) at Webtrends.

I’m sure you know Webtrends already, or you should. They’ve been around since 1993. But, in case you don’t, here’s an excerpt from their about:

Webtrends standards-based technology and dedicated support lets organizations extend the rich, visitor-centric data collected by their websites to business systems throughout the enterprise. Marketers, BI analytics and others can combine online and offline data to gain the one view of their customers and business – the integrated perspective that drives marketing and business success today.

Here’s the skinny:

Open Source BridgeHosts: Webtrends and Open Source Bridge

Where: 851 SW 6th Avenue #1600, Portland, OR, 97204

When: June 4, 2009 from 12 PM to 2 PM

Please RSVP on Upcoming so the hosts can get an idea of how much grub to get. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, drop a comment on the event page for planning, unless you don’t want to eat.

If you attend PDX Lunch 2.0, you’ve probably heard about Open Source Bridge already.

You know, the volunteer-run conference, dedicated to open source citizenship and (ahem) world domination that’s happening June 17-19 at the OCC.

Rather than co-opting another Lunch 2.0 to promote the conference, we’re (full disclosure, both Rick and I are volunteers) teaming up with Webtrends, one of our awesome sponsors, to fill your ears with open source goodness and your belly with yummy food.

Coincidentally, Webtrends is a quick walk across Taylor Street from the Hilton Portland, where the Open Source Bridge all-hours hacker lounge will be during the conference.

And yes, June 4 is a Thursday.

Don’t forget these Lunch 2.0s, coming soon:

The list looks short, but don’t worry. There are announcements on the way soon.

Big thanks to all the hosts who have hosted or plan to host Lunch 2.0. Drop a comment (or tweet @jkuramot) if you want information about hosting one. It’s easy.
