115 Empire Street, Providence, RI
This coming Wednesday we’ll be kicking off the new year, by checking in with an “old” friend of Providence Geeks – Investment Instruments Corporation (IIC).
Owen Johnson, co-founder of the local-global web company that creates happy tenants and happy landlords, will be sharing the low-down on the company’s impressive progress in 2007. He’ll also give a quick demo of IIC’s latest offering, Rentomatic, an update on the popular Rentometer, and an overview of the significant technical improvements made to both systems over the past year. Owen will be joined by Nick Kishfy, IIC’s manager of operations.
Please RSVP in the comments section of this post so that we can give the good folks at AS220 an estimated headcount. And while youâ€™re at it, subscribe to Providence Geeksâ€™ RSS feed (see sidebar) and/or join our very-low-volume email announcement list (for the announcement list, send an email to Jack Templin, jtemplin over at Gmail with your name and affiliation).
As always, for first-timers here are the details on the Geek Dinners:
- Itâ€™s totally casual. Wear whatever, bring whoever, arrive and vamoose wheneverâ€¦ And donâ€™t worry about eating or not â€“ come famished or full â€“ eating is optional, and frankly, the least of the festivities (thatâ€™s not say the food isnâ€™t goodâ€”itâ€™s actually great)
- 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, innovative business models, interaction design, social computing, digital art, web services, etc. etc. etc.
- Food and beverages are for sale at the adjoining Taqueria Pacifica and bar
- There is Wi-Fi so bring your connected device of choice.
