Extensis to Host First Lunch 2.0 in the New Year


Extensis to Host First Lunch 2.0 in the New Year

I know seems a bit premature to start thinking about 2010, but with the snowfall creeping down below 2,000 feet, buying chains and seeing sporadic holiday decorations appear around town, it might not be too early.

With that in mind, I’m pleased to announce that Extensis will be hosting the first Portland Lunch 2.o of 2010 on January 20. Go ahead and save that date now.

Not familiar with Extensis? Well, they build font management and digital asset management software and have been around for 15 years, I believe all of them here in Portland.

Interested to learn more? Here come the details:

Hosts: Extensis

Where: 1800 SW First Avenue, Suite 500, Portland, OR, 97201

When: Wednesday, January 20, 2010 from 12 PM to 2 PM

As usual, please RSVP on Upcoming. This tells the hosts how much grub to get, and if you’re vegetarian or vegan, make sure to drop a comment on the event page for planning, unless you don’t want to eat, which kind of defeats the purpose of, you know, lunch.

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

So, it looks like we’re taking a break for the holidays, unless someone steps up in a hurry. Probably just as well, what with all the happy distractions. Don’t fret too much though because I have a few leads for February and March, but as always, I can use your help finding new (or re-convincing old) hosts.

If you’re interested in hosting a Lunch 2.0, drop a comment or hit me up on Twitter (@jkuramot). Also, check out the how-to primer.

Big thanks to all the hosts who have hosted or plan to host Lunch 2.0.

    Any chance you would consider running this 12:30-2:30. Many get lunch at noon and it would be nice to have some time to get over there even from downtown?? Please consider. Even 12:15 would help.

  3. Jake says:

    The event usually doesn’t have a set agenda, and the food typically lasts the whole two hours. It’s designed to be casual and flexible to accomodate as many schedules as possible.

    There aren’t official start and end times, so I think it should be fine.

    Maybe you could clarify the problem. Are you worried the food will be gone?
