2nd Tech Triangle Tweetup

Friday, January 16th, 2009

The 2nd TechTriangleTweetup for folks within reasonable range of K-W/Cambridge/Guelph will be held during the last week of January, 2009.

The date will be selected by popular vote here: ScheduleOnce (voting closes Friday, January 16th at midnight)

Update: We had 18 people respond at ScheduleOnce. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a day that all could attend, but Wednesday, Jan 28th was the most popular with 15 able to come that day. See you then!

Time: Anytime between 5 and late. ;)

The venue has yet to be determined. Make your suggestions in the comments on this post.
Update: I was thinking Moose Winooski’s at Sportsworld in Kitchener since it’s fairly easy for everyone to get to – including the transit-riders.

Hashtag: #techtriangle

(this link seems to break Twitter, what did I do wrong?) Nevermind, it seems Twitter had an unrelated seizure the first time I tested.

A Tweetup for Canada’s Technology Triangle

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

I’m calling a Tweetup for the Kitchener-Waterloo/Cambridge/Guelph area – otherwise known as Canada’s Technology Triangle.  If you’re on Twitter (or curious) and live in or near the Triangle please join us!

The venue is the Duke & Duchess Pub in north-east Cambridge at Hwy 401 and Townline Rd. Someone might want to bring along a proper website for the D&D!

The date has not yet been set. Please visit ScheduleOnce to let me know which dates you would be available. The date with the most people available wins.

Update: The date has been set. December 9th

See you there!

Update: Apparently Guelph is not officially part of the Technology Triangle – rest assured you are still invited. @designmeme has suggested forming Canada’s Technology Rhombus… we can discuss at the Tweetup. ;)

Less than a month after the first Detroit area Tweetup, the next Tweetup has already been arranged! Chris Brogan will be in town for ITEC and asked if Twitterers in the area wanted to meetup. Within a few minutes, Damon Henry got the ball rolling and we’re all set for May 20th in Novi.

See Damon’s post for the details!

Social Media Alive & Well in Metro Detroit!

There are some great things happening in social media in Metro Detroit. If there was one clear lesson from last night’s gathering of Twitterati from the Metro area, it’s that SF, Boston, Austin & Toronto are NOT the only social media hotspots.

There were some very smart and very enthusiastic people around that table last night – good things are on the way from the Motor City.

A roundup of who was there:
