Spring is coming to a close and the sweltering summer heat will soon be upon us. Not that we don't love the cozy confines of the musky backroom that is the Bridge Lounge, but we just thought it might be nice to have a Net2NO get together to enjoy the fresh air.
Neel Sus and Brian Rodriguez are sponsoring a Net2NO BBQ @ The Fly in Audubon Park from 1pm - 5pm. Food and drink will be provided, so bring the wife and kids, pets or random strangers you happen to pick up hitching while en route.
As for our next meetup, we are pleased to welcome back Brian Bordanick from 9th Ward Field of Dreams who is going to give us a quick update as to their progress and hopefully see how we at Net2NO can continue to help this wonderful cause.
Our main event will be Don Kelly from www.project3090.com to talk about the 30-90 project and the cutting edge of sustainability and technology.
So come join us and merriment shall be had by all and on second thought, maybe don't bring the drifter you picked up on the side of the I-10.
Net2NO (pronounced "NetSquared New Orleans" or "Net Two Know") is known as the "granddaddy the tech and startup community" in New Orleans. Founded in 2008 as a way to get local entrepreneurs, innovators and tech people into the same room, it has grown from a mere 30 members to over 1, 100 people. We're the fourth largest Net2Local meetup group in the world (out of 75 total), and our members have started a variety of spinoff groups, events and companies including GNOCODE, NewOrleansTech.net, Teen Tech Day and TribeCon.
NetSquared Local groups hold monthly events that take place in cities around the world (ours are the first Tuesday of every month, from 6-9 pm at Marlene's on the River), convening changemakers to share ideas, learn from each other, and even collaborate on projects for real world impact. These gatherings provide a chance to connect for all those interested in the intersection of social technologies and social change. In New Orleans, it's also an opportunity for like-minded people to get together and drink, be inspired, and meet amazingly talented individuals who are doing great things in our city.
Net2NO: Innovation. Inspiration. Inebriation.
In other words, we are a Clearinghouse of Awesome. Join us.
