Grab a Beer With Me and My New Partner in Crime, Curt Woodward, at the Xconomy Meetup March 22
Every now and then—pretty much whenever I feel like it—we here at Xconomy like to invite our readers to come out and shoot the breeze with us over a beer.
These are some of my favorite events, and I have a really good excuse to schedule a new one now—it’s time to introduce readers to my new colleague here in Seattle, Curt Woodward. So mark your calendars for happy hour, 4 pm to 6 pm, on March 22 for the next Xconomy Meetup at the Streamline Tavern at 121 West Mercer St. in Seattle.
Curt, who joined us last month after a distinguished run as the Associated Press statehouse reporter in Olympia, has been getting to know who’s who and what’s what in the local tech, venture, and cleantech scene. He’s already broken a few tasty little scoops that you couldn’t find anywhere else. One last week was about how Amazon’s state-by-state brouhaha over sales taxes is a sideshow to a real national issue. Other exclusives focused on what Facebook is doing here in Seattle, and what the heck Nick Hanauer and Rich Barton are up to with their stealthy “King of the Web” startup.
So stop on by and dish us some hot inside info, or just come over to say hi and maybe tease Curt about how he quoted The Rock on Twitter in reference to an Amazon story. I think I need to brush up on my knowledge of World Wrestling Entertainment if I’m going to keep up with this guy.
Please shoot us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com if you plan on stopping by The Streamline on March 22, so we know how many chairs to set aside (and how much to tip the bartender).
