Details

The meetup is now at WorkSpace (Suite 400, 21 Water Street).

Note: This is a joint event with MoMoVan (Mobile Monday Vancouver). By "joint" I mean it is their event, they do all the work and we get to go for free! They wanted to use WorkSpace for this night, and the topic seemed very interesting since many of us in the Vancouver Ruby and Rails community are doing startups.

However, because it's a joint event, I need to cap the attendance at 30 people...

TOPIC: Art of the Pitch, Mobile Voting, Entrepreneurship + MORE

Their description:

"We've got a new and fascinating meeting place this time – WorkSpace. It's a new concept in open office environments, offering a café-like setting and a variety of business services.

Social networks have existed since mankind's early tribal days. But with the growing world use of mobile devices, the nature of those networks is shifting, perhaps even ore than they did with other technological developments – such as print, radio, TV, telephony and the Internet.
