The ninth Hacker News Seattle meetup is here! We'll be meeting on Tuesday, May 1st at 6pm at in downtown Seattle at SURF Incubator!
Food, beer, and other drinks will be provided, and as always, the event is free. Last month I tested having some higher quality food, and the response was overwhelmingly positive! So with the help of our new premier sponsor, I'll be continuing my War On Pizza and be providing some higher quality food.
The speaker this month will be Greg Gottesman, Managing Director at the local Seattle Venture Capital firm Madrona Ventures. He'll be talking about the 13 characteristics of a great startup culture.
I'd like to introduce our new Premier Sponsor, Hotmail. They’re serious about making Hotmail the best email service in the world, and that starts with getting input from users like members of the Hacker News Seattle community. In addition to providing a few other surprises, they're responsible for improving the quality of food at the event!
Big thanks to our venue and the rest of the sponsors for this month:
