Last night was TECH cocktail 4, a quarterly networking event in Chicago that has developed a reputation for being a fun and of high quality. I have personally attended three of them, and I believe this was the best so far. The venue was easily accessible near Wrigley Field and public transportation as well as in its vast size to give plenty of room to move, and the diversity of the attendees, from those deeply immersed in technology to those on the periphery.
It was nice to catch up with colleagues that I don’t see often enough, such as Mike Carruth of Digital Bootcamp, Peter Meyers from Tminus2 and debabblog, David Dalka and Tom Sherman of WindyBits. I also had the opportunity to meet two people in person I have up to then only communicated with online – Jason Jacobsohn of Networking Insight and Joe Piekarz of timeXchange.
Not to forget the stack of business cards from people I met for the first time I will be following up with. My only regret from the night was not meeting the founders of the event, Frank Gruber and Eric Olson. Now I have an agenda item for TECH cocktail 5.Technology • (6) Comments • Permalink
