It’s been nearly a year since AboutUs hosted the first Portland Lunch 2.0 back in late February 2008, and we’ll be back there again this Wednesday, February 11.
The last year has been busy, in a good way, for the AboutUs crew. Since we lunched with them last, they’ve been busy raising money, no easy feat in this economy, and staying atop the Portland Startup Index.
I’m looking forward to checking in with the gang and with all of you, natch. You are coming, right? What better way to kick off what Bram has dubbed the “Busiest Day in Portland Tech“. He would know.
So, it’s settled. Just please make sure you RSVP over on Upcoming so they know how much food to get and drop a comment there if you’re a vegan or vegetarian.
It’s been a year now, with ten Lunches 2.0. Or is it Lunch 2.0s? Rick will know.
Here are a few of my personal highlights.
- Bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with blue cheese at Vidoop.
- Droves of Silicon Floristas showing up at CubeSpace to wish Rick a happy birthday.
- Comedic confusion at the Art Institute when we overlapped a career fair.

- April 8 hosted by MioWorks at a location TBD
March 25April 22 at TechShop Portland in Beaverton
- May 20 hosted by WebVisions at the Oregon Convention Center
MioWorks needs a place to host their lunch. I guess their tiny office can’t hold 100+ people for lunch. So, if you have suggestions about where they could host, drop a comment, or noodle on it and wait for the official announcement.
Big thanks to all the hosts who have hosted or plan to host Lunch 2.0. I hope we can keep the Lunch 2.0 train rolling this year. Drop a comment (or tweet @jkuramot) if you want information about hosting one. It’s easy.
Stay tuned to this channel for the recap later this week. There are usually tweets and pics on Flickr to keep you virtually satisfied.
I’m out of town but I wish I could make it. I’d love to hear about it.
