New York City Roadtrip (let’s meet up)

N

It’s the first morning of my New York stay, and boy, am I looking forward to the next four weeks. I packed my laptop (plus two cameras and a ton of chargers and cables) and will be working from here. Thanks to friends I’m staying in a great location right in SoHo (thanks, Parker!) and had an incredibly warm welcome here.

And of course on my mission to explore not just the city, but also the NYC geek scene, my schedule is filling up quickly. First up: Likemind NY, the original Likemind, where I’m looking forward to meeting founder Noah. (Thomas and I have been hosting Likemind Berlin lately.) Then there’s OpenEverything NYC. Then there’s OpenEverything NYC and a NYC Tech Meetup coming up. Also, there’s Coworking Brooklyn to check out. If you’re at either of those, make sure to say hi!

I’m getting away somewhat from my initial idea to crash at some companies’ offices for a few days at a time and am tending more towards setting up base at a coworking space, but I’m trying to take this as it comes.

Upcoming: Valley Trip. Wanna meet up?

Most of you live in the States – that’s what my blog stats say, and that’s my experience from talking to you, too. Also, with quite a few of you I’ve emailed, chatted, or talked during the last couple of years. (I just realized: This blog is turning two years old just about these days.) It’s always good (and great fun) to get to learn the faces behind those blogs and screen names.

So, to cut a long story short: Starting 18 March, I’ll be on a trip to the Valley region. I’ll be staying in Palo Alto with a Stanford friend, but trips around the Valley are (yet to be) planned. (Exact dates, see the Dopplr badge below.) Wanna meet up? Drop me a line: peter@thewavingcat.com.

Also, which events are you going to that I definitively shouldn’t miss? I’m looking for all things along the line of Social Media Breakfasts, Twitter Meet-Ups, or great concerts. Again, please drop me a line to peter@thewavingcat.com. Thanks!

Looking forward to putting more faces to all those names.
