I met a ton of new poeple, put faces to other names, and got a couple of free hats!! Seattle Lunch 2.0 @ Zillow was a great event for the second ever in Seattle. It was also timely with the new neighborhoods launch!!
I learned a lot about Yapta (I think my family is going to use this from now on, getting cheap flights for four is hard!), learned a ton from Rich Barton & John Cook.
John Cook, who sat on the panel with Rich Barton has a great write up of the comments along with some audio. Rich of course pleased every entrepreneur in the room with his insights into running technology companies and getting funded....
It seems we got a lot more of the "press" at this event... along with more bloggers too!! Brier has a neat write up on Rich's commie view of the web which includes the commie website craigslist, and follows it up with a post regarding Forbes.com listing Washington state in the top five states for business.
The food was of course great, and despite Drew getting a count of over 100 attendees everyone had plenty to eat! The next Seattle Lunch 2.0 is already full!! So you'll have to sneak in or get a cheap ticket using Yapta to go attend Mixer 2.0 @ Hitachi Data Systems or Lunch 2.0 @ Powerset!
There are more pics on flickr with the "Seattle Lunch 2.0 Zillow" tag (feel free to upload more if you took them)! Unfortunately, Chris didn't have internet access to stream with (kind of lame), we'll have to make sure we can get Seattle Lunch 2.0 @ Wishpot streamed!! Also for all of you who came to lunch instead of the adobe AIR bus....Thanks - maybe we can get Adobe to host a lunch in the future!!
