Welcome 2011 with Lunch 2.0 at Urban Airship

[HTML1]And we’re back.

It’s been months of silence since we had lunch at City Hall, complete with a Mayor (@mayorsamadams) sighting, and apparently, some of you actually miss little old Lunch 2.0.

The good news is we have a host for January; I was just waiting to announce it until you were finished with your holiday fussing.

So, without further ado, Urban Airship (@urbanairship) cordially invites you to lunch at their place in Old Town (Update: Turns out the office is actually in the Pearl, see comments for background on the geographical correction) for lunch and light networking on Wednesday, January 26, 2011.

Reminder: Lunch 2.0 at City Hall is Wednesday

You read that right. This Wednesday, we’re having Lunch 2.0 at City Hall, brought to you by CivicApps (@civicapps), and Portland Ten(@portlandten).

Maybe I’m wrong in thinking this is a big deal because here it is Monday, and only 71 people have replied over on Upcoming. I know you don’t want to be tied down to a schedule, but if you’re planning to swing by, make sure to RSVP.

This serves two purposes. First, you’ll get fed because the hosts will know how much food to order, and second, we’ll know you’re coming so we can better estimate the crowd size.

Sure, City Hall is pretty big, but we need to monitor the crowd size a bit to ensure that we don’t make a lot of noise that disrupts the daily business of the City, which would be a bad thing.

So, if you’re coming and haven’t done so already, go RVSP now. I’ll wait.

The City of Portland, CivicApps and Portland Ten to Host Lunch 2.0 October 20

So, this is kind of a big deal.

I’m extremely pleased to announce that the City of Portland, specifically CivicApps (@civicapps), and Portland Ten (@portlandten) will be our hosts for Lunch 2.0 on October 20, 2010 at City Hall.

You may recall from Rick’s coverage that CivicApps is “a contest sponsored by the City of Portland designed to help stimulate and motivate the development community to mix and match all the awesome datasets—more than 100 different types—available from the City.”

Of course, you’re also likely familiar with Portland Ten, a past Lunch 2.0 host, whose mission is to grow ten Portland startups to $1 million in revenue within 18 months.

Reminder: Slate Technologies Lunch 2.0 is Wednesday

Things have been relatively quiet on the Lunch 2.0 front lately, but that doesn’t mean nothing is happening.

For example, did you remember that Slate Technologies (@slatetechpdx) is hosting Lunch 2.0 on Wednesday, September 15th?

I know, it’s not exactly near downtown, but for a lot of you Southeasterns, it might be close to home. Maybe Wednesday is a good day to work from home?

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?

Reminder: Lunch 2.0 at Janrain is Wednesday

It’s time for another Lunch 2.0, specifically one at Janrain this Wednesday, July 14.

The weather looks to be very pleasant, which is welcome, but alas, we won’t be on the rooftop deck as I’d initially predicted.

Apparently, the fire code has recently changed limiting the number of people allowed on the roof. Anyway, no biggie, Janrain’s offices are plenty interesting, and you won’t have to worry about flies in your food or sunburn.

New Relic Will Be Our Lunch 2.0 Host for August

While Rick soldiers through a very long day, a 30 hour one to be exact, the staff here must pick up the slack. So, here goes.

New Relic will be our gracious Lunch 2.o hosts on August 18, 2010.

Not familiar with them? They are a San Francisco-based startup, funded by Benchmark Capital and Trinity Ventures, that just so happens to have a satellite office here in the Rose City.

They provide cloud-based tools to monitor, optimize and troubleshoot Java, Ruby and JRuby web applications, including some you might have heard of like Highrise and Basecamp.

That’s right, 37Signals uses New Relic RPM. So do AboutUs and a whole mess of other customers.

Oh, and they’re hiring in Portland.

Recap of Network Redux, Webtrends Lunch 2.0

Yesterday, about 150 people gathered at Webtrends’ downtown office for a Lunch 2.0 co-hosted by Network Redux (@networkredux) and Webtrends (@webtrends).

The weather did not cooperate with tentative plans to enjoy the balcony off the Webtrends cafeteria on the 16th floor, but no one seemed to mind much. There will be other opportunities.

Tavola PDX provided the food, which was quite tasty, and the first hour was the standard Lunch 2.0 milling around and networking.

At around 1 PM, our own Rick (@turoczy) kicked off a panel consisting of Garett Stenson (@garettstenson) of Network Redux, Thomas Brenneke (@tbrenneke), of Network Redux, and Justin Kistner (@justinkistner), of Webtrends. Read More

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.
