New York is the place to be, especially these days, if you are involved in the tech industry (bay area? what bay area?). It is also an excellent place to go out and meet people, get inspired, and start something great.
Since the East Village is clearly one of the hippest places to live - and lots of techies do - this meet-up group is focused on connecting you with the like minded, away from your cubicle or coffee shop, and have a beer while you are at it.
So, if you are excited to change the world one cloud, one gadget, one app, or whatever, at a time and you live in the East Village (or don't mind taking the trip) you should come out and get to know your in-spirit co-workers, share drinks, stories, and experiences, and connect.
