Web Two Oh Chronicles – November SF NewTech Meetup

Organized by Joel Sacks, CNET and Marketing Strategist at BuzzShout, and Myles Weissleder, SF NewTech Meetup celebrated yet another new milestone of over 600 members. The November SF NewTech seemed to come up pretty quickly this time. And, it rained again (October’s event greeted us with rain as well) – let’s hope this isn’t a pattern! As usual Myles kicked things off to what had to be the largest turnout yet. The event attracted the usual faces, with some new…

Photo Credit: Beau Liening Grab a bottle of bubbles at your local Longs or RiteAid, get outside and commence blowing.

Christian Perry, founder and CEO of Zaptix, put the whole thing together and it was held in the heart of downtown at the Bar of Contemporary Art (boca). Funny thing though, I didn’t see any art. I was able to talk with Christian beforehand and ask him about his motivation for the event: Q: What’s the inspiration for BETA? A: San Francisco lacked…

STIRR 1.5 – I prefer my networking events stirred, not shaken

The August STIRR mixer was held last night at Blue Chalk in Palo Alto and it was a HOT event – literally. No A/C on a hot August night…but still, the place was packed until the very end. Photo Credit: Ian Kennedy This was STIRR’s fifth event and appeared to be its biggest to date. What sets STIRR apart is that it is an effective mix of “live” social and business networking among a highly qualified crowd of tech innovators,…
