Similar to STIRR and the SV and SF NewTech Meetups, the concept is really about bringing together the people behind the new “Silicon Valley” economy to network, see some cool tech demos and enjoy lunch – 2.0 style. Over 200 attendees ranged from entrepreneurs, CxO’s, programmers, bloggers, podcasters, vloggers, and curious tech folks from various companies.

Owyang quoted, “I’ve got a few things to brag about, the entire event was spread via blogs and emails, and we didn’t spend any money on getting the word out. That’s social media/community marketing at work! Gotta love that.”

I was able to stay long enough to meet and catch up with some incredible people before I had to bolt to Downtown SJ for a meeting.
The list of people that you should know includes:
Gabe Rivera of TechMeme
Scott Beale of Laughing Squid
Jen McClure of Society for New Communications Research
Jeremy Pepper of Weber Shandwick and Third Thursdays
Vic from HotfromSiliconValley
Kudos to Jeremiah Owyang . I would say that the event was more than a success, and yet another example of the excitement and enthusiasm that’s driving the new economy in Silicon Valley. I look forward to the next one!
