Meetup in Portland?
I’ll be in Portland later this month, Friday through Sunday, August 19, 20 and 21.
I’m going there to hang out with Ward and others, but I am open to have an old-style blog meetup, if there’s interest.
Maybe Friday night, the 19th?
We’ll need a place to meet in downtown Portland. The way I like to do it is first we spend 1.5 hours or so in a classroom-style venue, a place where everyone can hear everyone else. We’ll talk about writing for the web, generally. I’d like to talk specifically about the software I’m working on, 1999.io, LO2 and the various server snacks. I hope Ward will be there, and we can talk a bit about connecting our software, which is very important, and something we both believe in. We need a little leadership there, and it takes two to get the interop ball rolling.
After the meetup, let’s go to dinner, for more focused conversation and imbibing.
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or a tweet at @davewiner, and I can get a sense of how many people want to participate. And if you have an idea for a venue that would be great. If the group is small enough we can meet in a park or a Starbuck’s, but of course it would work better if we had a projector that I can hook my Mac up to.
Looking forward! :-)
