Return of the Geeks–Next Dinner Sept. 13th 5:30pm-9pm+


Wednesday, September 13, 2006, 5:30pm – 9pm+

115 Empire Street, Providence, RI

We’re back and can’t wait to see you! After an August hiatus, the monthly Geek Dinners return with a bang.

Local start-up, Axon Labs, will be giving us a rare sneak peak at their next generation alarm clock technology. You don’t want to miss this. (Stay tuned for details in a follow-on post. Update: follow-on post here.)

Please RSVP using the comments on this blog entry so we can give the good folks at AS220 an estimated headcount. And while you’re at it, subscribe to our feeds and/or join the mailing list (for the mailing list, send an email to Jack Templin at jtemplin at Gmail with your name and affiliation).

As always, for first-timers here are the details on the Geek Dinners:

  • It’s totally casual. Wear whatever, bring whoever, arrive and vamoose whenever… And don’t worry about eating or not – come famished or full – eating is optional, and frankly, the least of the festivities.
  • Topics of conversation will vary as they will at any gathering of geeks, but many of us will be talking about AJAX, mash-ups, start-ups, new devices, business models, interaction design, social computing, digital art, and web services.
  • Food and beverages are for sale at the adjoining Taqueria Pacifica and bar.
  • There is WiFi so bring your connected device of choice.
  • We have AS220’s performance space from 5:30pm to approximately 7pm. After that the geekery moves to AS220’s adjoining cafe.


We set up a room on to do some early planning for the group and deal with infrastructure. These days it’s kinda quiet in there, so we figured we’d use the space for general discussion instead. So come on over to #provgeeks and say hello.

What's Doing at Brown CS

Here’s a link that every local geek should have bookmarked:
