Networking Events This Week

From: user 5.

Some unique events this week along with the usual weekly stuff.

Monday, if you’re currently in ProMatch, Post-ProMatch or thinking about joining ProMatch, consider attending “Steve’s Drop In Coaching”, 1pm to 2:30 at Connect.

Tuesday morning there is Bio2Device at the Sunnyvale City Council Chambers, topic is “Global Regulatory Environment for Medical Devices” with Speaker Patrick Lee

Later on Tuesday, you can walk from the Council Chamber to Connect for ToastMatchers, 1pm.

Wednesday evening at Triple Ring in Newark, there is the monthly “ASQ Northern California Biomedical Discussion Group” topic is “Sampling Plans, with featured speaker John Zorich.

Thursday at 8am there might be Eco Green Group in Saratoga, or it might be their meeting is in the evening this week, they do that once per month. At the time of this writing it their website has not been updated.

Later ( or long before ) in the same room ( or perhaps not ) , Csix meets at 10:15, speaker this time is John Hadley presenting “How to Use Storytelling to Get Hired”

Also Thursday at lunchtime there is this event, IEEE-CMPT presents "The Origins of Silicon Valley: Why and How It Happened Here" with speaker Paul Wesling. Register in advance and it’s five bucks for unemployed and students. Buffet lunch, all you can eat. At the Biltmore in Santa Clara.  If you're not going to Csix why not kick the tires on this one?

Thursday night the MIT Club presents The Future of U.S. Solar Photovoltaic Technology, with speaker Tonio Buonassisi, MIT Professor

This will be at PARC in Palo Alto, pricey but in the past there have been excellent snack foods and wine. Never been disappointed with this group.

Last week I put out some information which was incomplete or proved later to be incorrect. Mike’s Sports Bar closed, so the SF Peninsula Medical Device Meetup moved to the Westin in Palo Alto. Similarly, “Thirsty Third Thursday” was not in Mountain View but at Faultline in Sunnyvale. If anyone went to the wrong place, well, that’s one I owe ya.

Last week I was at Bio2Device, excellent speaker I thought, and I also was at ToastMatchers.

Wednesday I chose “SF Medical Device Meetup” over the other events going on. Nice atmosphere, met some interesting people. Not as technical as the IEEE, AIAA and ASQ offering that same evening … the attraction perhaps was that it was different.

The SME tour Thursday was well-attended and the subject business was fascinating, a maker of all kinds of medical products, using EDM and laser welding among other processes. Lots of really tiny parts. Learned what a “Swiss screw machine” is. No photography allowed, so no photo album to share. On account of this tour also, did not attend Eco Green Group or Csix.

Was not at Post Pro Match last Friday because I went to see the Space Shuttle, which didn’t live up to its billing, as I reported previously on LI and FB.

Saw a lot of interesting homebuilt electric vehicles at the big show Sunday at DeAnza. Also saw for the first time a Tesla Model S, the new Toyota RAV4, the electric Ford Focus. Had seen before a Fisker, there were a couple of those in attendance also. Pics here:

This week I have other things going on Tuesday and Thursday, though I still plan to attend the MIT event Thursday night Tuesday I won’t be at Bio2Device or ToastMatchers, etc.
