Clever, Constructive Conversation (About Technology)
Come join us in an open-ended forum about technology. This is modeled after Phil Windley's CTO Breakfast. You can see the results of previous discussion here with my event reports.
The difference is the location: we'll do this at venues in Salt Lake City. Fri Jan 17 2013 is at the Gateway above Jason's Deli, 2nd floor. (Past incarnations: Max at about 70th S and 13th E; Newmont U at downtown SLC.)
You can count on bagels. (At least, you can at this location; someday we may do it in a cafeteria or restaurant, so be sure to watch the location and confirm whether food is provided or available for purchase.)
As for dates, here is the calendar and here is the iCal info. (For you real-time watchers, follow me on Twitter.) Afterward, you can see any notes I took in this feed.
If you're interested, you're invited. Cheers!
Motivation: amazing things happen when you get together with smart people who speak their minds freely! I've had a great time at Phil's CTO Breakfast events, where many intelligent and well-networked people sit and talk in an open forum about current events and interesting projects and even crazy ideas. In the same vein, the Kynetx conferences have been eye-opening (and mind-blowing), partly because smart people come but mostly because they encourage conversations; they even had 2 "unconference" sessions where the topics and conversations were run by attendees, chosen dynamically (15 minutes before they happened). The experience is always memorable.
