Slate Technologies to Host Lunch 2.0 on September 15

About a month ago at Beer and Blog, Chris O’Rourke (@ChrisORourke) came up to me and announced that his company, Slate Technologies, would be hosting the next Lunch 2.0.

If you know Chris, you’re laughing right now because you know this is exactly how it happened.

Chris is a funny guy, and he went on to tell some great stories that you’d only believe if you heard them from him in person. In addition to being the CEO of Slate, Chris has some interesting side jobs and side projects.

So, why come to Lunch 2.0 on September 15 and let Chris and the good people at Slate entertain you?

You might recall Chris and the Slate posse hosted us about a year ago at their then new digs in the great Southeast, near the intersection of SE Foster and SE Holgate.

I know, it’s further than usual, i.e. not in or very near downtown, but if you’re up for a bike ride or a bus trip or even a carpool, make your plans now. It’ll be a fun adventure.

Or if you live in Southeast, call it an early day or work from home.

Here’s the 411:

Hosts: Slate Technologies

Where: 6315 SE Holgate Blvd.Portland, OR 97206

When: September 15, 2010 from 12 PM to 2 PM

Please RSVP on Upcoming so the hosts can get an idea of how much grub to get. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, drop a comment on the event page for planning, unless you don’t want to eat.

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.
