It’s no secret that we’re geeks, or else we wouldn’t be a part of this group.
We love the latest and greatest technology, and love to talk about it even more.
We want to stay on top of the latest news and events so we can show-off to our friends and coworkers.
We know what the blosphere is and are either active members, or at least subscribe to their RSS feeds.
We’ve heard of sites such as Engadget, TechCrunch, Boy Genius Report, C|Net, Gizmodo, Slashdot, Ars Technica, Digg, Mashable, Tech Republic, The Register, etc, and we subscribe to their RSS feeds.
We know, or have at least heard, of such web celebrities as Mike Arrington, Mark Zuckerberg, Leo Leporte, David Pogue, etc..
So come help us celebrate five incredible years in tech with TechCrunch Meetups Everywhere!
On Friday, June 11, we’re currently planning a large meetup for South Florida, and it’s going to be HUGE.
