For all the difficulties of the pandemic, finding ways to connect with other humans — especially if you’ve recently relocated — has been among the most difficult. What’s more, for folks who are juggling jobs, family, and other areas of responsibility, evening networking events can be all but inaccessible — whether it’s a pandemic or not. That’s why I’ve been actively working to reboot Portland Lunch 2.0, a simple community networking event that occurs during the lunch hour.Read More
Here in Portland, we love the Lunch 2.0. But we can always stand to improve it. So Jake Kuramoto, the Portland Lunch 2.0 guy, has proposed that we take a trip up to Seattle to see how our neighbors to the north handle Seattle Lunch 2.0.
So this Friday, March 6, we’re doing just that.
It’s a diplomatic envoy or something. And it has two goals. The first is partaking in Seattle Lunch 2.0 but the second part? Talking to all the cool open source folks in the Emerald City in hopes of convincing them to come visit us in the Rose City for Open Source Bridge.
We’re all looking forward to getting the chance to hang out with our fellow Lunch 2.0 types, like Eric Berto, John DeRosa, Josh Maher, Danielle Morrill, and more. So if you’re from Seattle and debating whether you should be attending or not, hopefully this will be the little push you need to show up.
What’s that? Not enough inspiration to attend?
Okay. Fine. Ben Huh will also be there.
(yes, the CEO of the company that runs FAIL Blog, I Can Has Cheezburger?, GraphJam and other Interweb time sinks), will swing by and give a talk about his view on the world, building a lean business, and how to make a business out of being a blogger.
Oh. So now you’re interested. I see how you are.
We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
