Yes, 2 emails from me in one day!
Along with exploring local opportunities, I would like to encourage some extra-regional competition and collaboration. Specifically, with and/or against my cohort in Austin, Greg Stoll. And thinking even farther out of the box, with friends of mine in Tampere, Finland.
I think it would be fun to have some competitive hackathons. We could possibly even have a physical one with Austin, hosted either there, in DFW or maybe some spot in the middle. At the very least we could do so virtually. Same for the Tampere group.
The regions that Greg and I cover are pretty big, so ultimately we could be talking New Mexico, Oklahoma and Louisiana as possible partners in some fashion. As for Tampere, I plan to visit there next year so it would be cool to have a competitive hackathon going with them then.
Let's get creative! Ill come back to this subject later.
