Reminder: Network Redux, Webtrends Co-Hosting Lunch 2.0 Wednesday

When I announced that Network Redux (@networkredux) and Webtrends (@webtrends) would be co-hosting Lunch 2.0 on June 16, I never thought we’d have to cross our fingers for a nice day .

But here we are in mid-June, hoping for the first 80-degree day of the year.

Anyway, let’s hope for a great sunny day for Wednesday, so we can all enjoy the balcony at Webtrends.

Aside from the usual networking and food, the co-hosts have an interesting agenda planned for you.

First off, Tavola PDX will be catering, and I’ve seen the menu. Looks yummy.

After an hour of mingling, your pal Rick (@turoczy) will be moderating a panel of four speakers:

  • Thomas Brenneke, President of Network Redux
  • Justin Kistner (@justinkistner), Sr. Manager Social Media Marketing at Webtrends
  • Garett Stenson (@garettstenson), Creative Director at Network Redux
  • A mystery man

Cue the intrigue.

The main topics for the panel’s discussion will be web hosting and web analytics, natch. However, these are obviously pretty broad areas for discussion.

So, if you’re attending (and why wouldn’t you), bring your questions, leave them here in comments or drop them over on the Network Redux blog.

Still stumped? Here are some ideas from Network Redux:

What do you want to learn about? What would you like us to discuss? What questions do you have? Do you want our panelists to chat about security? Should we talk about Monitoring? Social Media? WordPress? Etc. Please feel free to leave us comments below and we will put your question on the discussion docket.

Sounds like a good time. I’m told by a little birdie that there may be freebies handed out as well, just in case free lunch, interesting discussion and chatting with your old pals and fascinating new people isn’t enough to hook you.

As usual please be sure to RSVP over on Upcoming.

Big thanks to all the hosts who have hosted or plan to host Lunch 2.0. As with the majority of the tech events in Portland, sponsors make them happen. So, we humbly thank you.
