As part of the continuing saga of video interviews with the latest players in tech, Alison McNeil, Jeff Smith and the rest of the PR2.0 crew headed up to SF Beta to hear poetry?
Yes, it’s true. No demos this time…just Haiku.

While Alison McNeill attended the del.icio.us Birthday Bash, I co-hosted the Silicon Valley NewTech Meetup with Keith Vu, while Vincent Lauria was traveling to NY.
Exciting indeed as it was definitely one of the largest events to date. There were some familiar faces and it was great to see new attendees as well. At over 600 current members, the monthly event is showing only signs of tremendous growth – which may require a new, bigger venue soon.
This was STIRR ’s sixth event and there was no doubt that it was the biggest to date. In fact they had to move from Blue Chalk in Palo Alto to The Whisper Lounge in SF in order to accomodate the growth. In discussions with Sean Ness and Joanne Wan, estimates were easily placed at about 225.
225…? Kudos STIRR team!
