Yesterday, I met up with members of Open Source Bridge‘s brain trust at the Seattle Lunch 2.0 happy hour at Axios/TalentSpring.
Lots of people, lots of good chats. Lots of pizza and drink. IANAL but gosh their office is nice.
Open Source Bridge was represented by Selena Deckelmann, Rick Turoczy, Jake Kuramoto, and Kelly Guimont. They came up from Portland to spread the word about OSB, and in general mix it up with their more northerly geek brethren. We had good discussions about promoting OSB here in Seattle, including student outreach. Rick is also responsible for Silicon Florist, so he gets an extra +1.
TechFlash‘s John Cook was there, with his wife, whose name begins with an H but I forget. (The pizza carbohydrates were in full swing at that point.) We talked about the state of journalism and the newspaper business, e-book readers, Seattle P-I, and Open Source Bridge. I hope John will help promote the conference — it has the potential to be quite a benefit to the Seattle tech community.
