Lunch 2.0 Ventures East to Slate Technologies
Yesterday, about 50 or 60 people make the eastern trek to Slate Technologies.
Actually, there might have been more, but I had to bail early, just as the festivities got going. It’s a good thing they got their signs put up earlier in the week, or so Chris told me, because Slate is in a pretty nondescript office space just east of the SE Foster and SE Holgate intersection.
Once inside, their office is a nice cozy space, definitely larger than what they used to incubate at CubeSpace, with a large common area for working, easily converted to handle the mixing and mingling of a Lunch 2.0.
There’s even an area in the back just off the alley which made for a great barbecue spot for grilling veggie and erm, non-veggie hot dogs.
Aside from the usual meat-life networking, I’m not sure what else went on; looking over the tweets from yesterday, it seems like attendance might have been a bit lower than normal, possibly related to the location or maybe people were too busy talking.
If so, win!
So if I missed something noteworthy, let me know in comments.
Thanks to Slate for having us all over to visit the Eastside.
Don’t forget these this Lunch 2.0s, coming soon:
Don’t fret, I have a host on tap for mid-September, which I should be announcing soon. Any takers for the Fall?
