Reminder: Lunch 2.0 this Thursday at Webtrends

Amidst the flurry of activity recently, maybe you didn’t notice there will be another chapter in the PDX Lunch 2.0 saga this Thursday, June 4 at Webtrends.

The kind people at Webtrends have agreed to give Open Source Bridge a forum to chat about the  conference, which is quickly approaching, June 17-19 at the Oregon Convention Center.

Remember Open Source Bridge, the volunteer-run conference for open source citizens?

Hoping you do, since both Rick and I are volunteers, and your friendly neighborhood Silicon Florist is a media partner, and we’ve been yammering on about it for months now. Is this thing on?

Anyway, Webtrends is one of the many companies sponsoring Open Source Bridge, and they are also graciously hosting our volunteer orientation, which will be held at their offices on June 3 at 7 PM.

Want more Webtrends news? You can has. Beer and Blog founder and all-around nice guy Justin Kistner will be joining their ranks on June 9 as Senior Manager Social Media Marketing. I can’t say if Justin will make it to Lunch 2.0 on Thursday, but if he does, you can congratulate him in person, or if you prefer a more social media congratulatory method, drop a comment on his blog or tweet @ him.

Want more Open Source Bridge news? You can has that too. Conference co-founders and open source mavens, Audrey Eschright and Selena Deckelmann, were guests on Strange Love Live last Friday.

So, if you want to help out with the conference, drop by Wednesday evening for the skinny on volunteering.

If you want to register for Open Source Bridge, head over there posthaste and tell your friends.

If you want to find out more about Webtrends and/or Open Source Bridge, hang with your favorite PDX peeps and meet some new people, meet us at Webtrends on Thursday.

As always, 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. You can also +1 for Todd’s cookies-at-every-Lunch 2.0 campaign.

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

I’ve got a few tentatives cooking for August/September. If you want to host one, drop a comment here (or tweet @jkuramot) if you want information. It’s easy.

As always, big thanks to all the previous and future hosts.
