I recently had the opportunity to sit down for lunch with Sanford Barr and Dan Arkind. I’ve also held a few conversations with Joanne Wan and Sean Ness to discuss STIRR. Their vision for STIRR is united as they bring together the people driving the new tech economy forward. STIRR is by far the industry’s biggest, concentrated, most powerful, must-attend tech mixer out there, and it is only continuing to grow. Why? Because they control the attendee registration – invitees, qualified referrals, all business leaders in their own right.
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.
Yesterday, I attended the Lunch 2.0 event at Hitachi Data Systems in Santa Clara (Isn’t everything better with “2.0” after it?).
Jeremiah Owyang organized and hosted the event and credit also goes out to Mark Jen for starting the Lunch 2.0 event series.

On the heels of the Silicon Valley NewTech Meetup in Palo Alto on Tuesday, I spent the day in San Francisco at the Social Media Club HQ specifically to attend my first SF event – well that and a million other things on the SF to do list.

Last night’s Silicon Valley NewTech Meetup was definitely the biggest yet.
Vincent “Vinnie” Lauria again took center stage to welcome guests, which included VCs, engineers, programmers, entrepreneurs, bloggers, and plenty of CEOs.
The evening’s lineup included four up-and-coming Web startups, some more well known than others (and maybe one that really isn’t a startup per se). And interestingly enough, all seem to have found their niche for creating a loyal customer-base.
Silicon Valley NewTech Meetup is on the fast-track to become a must-attend monthly event. Similar to STIRR, SVNT showcases new technology and attracts prominent and up-and-coming executives, technologists, programmers, marketing gurus and VCs.
Vincent Lauria is the founder of SVNT and is also the VP of products for Meetro, an online service that combines the best features of messengers and social networks together with location.
I attended the Silicon Valley NewTech meetup this week at the new DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Gary offices in “East” Palo Alto.
Part of the new batch of technology networking events, SVNT spotlights new and and cool tech and Web 2.0 companies for an audience comprised of programmers, VCs, engineers, CxOs, VPs, and marketing professionals.
