Last night, we had a rather impromptu (to me, anyway)
organized by Alex Williams of Corante to welcome Chris Pirillo and his
fiance Ponzi to town.
There were several local nerds/geeks that I knew there: Greg, Scott,
and John, for example. But I didn't expect to see a Marketing wonk that
I worked with down at InFocus
many years ago. Apparently, Scott Niesen is now with a company here in
Portland making software that makes one's email and blogging software
just a little bit better. The company is called You Software and the
products look very helpful.
It was really great to meet up with Chris, Ponzi, and other techies
that are a bit outside of the 'usual' crowd. I do hope to see more of
these folks in future Nerd and Geek Dinners.
Who knows? Maybe we'll stretch the rules a bit and have a PND at a location other than a shopping mall one day.
