I wanted to wish all our members a safe, and happy holiday season.
I'm seeing a lot of activity in the tech area, locally and throughout the US.
The startup (Groupon / VC / Incubator) buzz has really caught on, and rightfully so.
I started 2010 with a personal quest towards web2.0 technology, which I published on my Drupal blog.
That has only intensified my interest and goals towards new technology, and I'd like this group to be a part of that. Obviously meetup itself is a social network, and a great way to communicate, spread information, and I'd support any of our members who also blog about technology.
I'd like to keep the group's focus intentionally broad, so we can cover all kinds of new technology, but my main focus, being a web applications developer will be on web-related technologies.
I'd welcome leaders in this area, to be part of the planning and presentations for 2011, and it's a great opportunity, not only for technology, but as a conduit for business networking as well.
Finding the right mix of educational value, sharing and collaborating, I can see the group being very valuable and offering good things for our members.
I'd consider another person, to be part of the organizing / leadership of the group, officially or unoffically. So if you have an interest, feel free to get in touch.
It's likely the group meetings will be planned scheduled at a variety of round-robin locations:
Loop, N.Side, NW Suburbs
Happy Holidays to all !
Let's resume in 2011 with a new focus, regular meetings and collaboration between members.
