I want to start off with a big WELCOME to all our new members!! We now have 90 members (and growing) in the EB New Tech Meetup, which is spectacular given that we've been around for less than 2mths.
This has been a year of "firsts" for our Meetup and I am very excited to announce our very first demo!!! Donna Horne, the Co-founder and President of ZoomPool will give us a live demo of her innovative online rideshare service at our October Meetup event on 10/29.
ZoomPool is an Internet rideshare matching service for people that want to carpool just for one-time events (like getting to your EB New Tech Meetup!) or for occasional trips, like driving to the airport, to hit the slopes this winter at Kirkwood, to sport games etc. What I love about ZoomPool is that it matches folks on trip parameters and also on compatibility features. Some folks who've used it say that it is the "eHarmony in the carpool lane!" But even for those of us not interested in finding new romance, ZoomPool is a fast way to find a trip partner without the long-term commitment :) Sign up here to sign up for the service at http://www.zoompool.com/signup .Once we have the venue confirmed, I can't wait to use this great service to help our members find rideshare for all our future Meetups.
Donna also did a live demo at this month's SF New Tech Meetup. Please RSVP for the October Meetup ASAP so you don't miss this opportunity to see the demo up close and also meet Donna Horne, an absolutely dynamic tech entrepreneur, in person.
One more piece of news that I am also excited about is that we've already started seeing interest from local businesses for sponsoring the EB New Tech Meetup and I'll keep posted as we confirm the details.
Last but not the least, if you missed the September EB New Tech Meetup, you can read the blog post on the brilliant talk by Lawrence Coburn, CEO/Founder of Rate It All, a popular consumer rating site, at http://marketingmysti... and see the pictures on our Facebook fan page.
Looking forward to seeing you all on the 29th.
