Casual Networking Event Tomorrow Night, Great Broadcasts and More for 7/16/2014

Join us for our next in-person and complete free casual networking event tomorrow (Thursday) night in Royal Oak tomorrow night!

While you’re waiting on that, we’ve got some blog entries you can read, and our last two live broadcasts have been just packed with great information, laughs, and are well worth listening to if you haven’t already done so.

We’d also like a little feedback about a new adventure we’re considering…

Thursday, July 17th.

Back at our home base in the back room of the Blackfinn in Royal Oak.

All of the usual details apply.  5pm start time, and we’ll be there until at least 8pm or later.  No, there’s no cover charge to get in.  No, you don’t have to listen to a sales pitch.  Yes, you will find some of the best people in the metro Detroit information technology community hanging out.  No, you don’t have to be looking for a job or to hire someone to show up and chat with folks.

No cover charge to get in, no speakers, no agenda…just solid networking with some of the best and brightest folks in and around the metro Detroit information technology community.

And because this is something we’re going to remind you about every now and again, take two seconds and donate a few bucks to help a kid:

Our last two live broadcasts have been just simply packed with great information, a whole bunch of laughs, and some of the best guests we could ever ask for.

ep49Episode 49 had Hatch Detroit, Bamboo Detroit and Daily Detroit in-studio.  As you can imagine, we talked a lot about Detroit-centric issues over the course of the show, and the deadline for Hatch Detroit’s $50,000 contest is today, people.

There were some fairly significant technical difficulties during that broadcast with the soundboard, and so we’ll warn you right up from that the audio is a little flaky…but it’s still completely worth listening to over at

The entry form for Hatch Detroit’s contest can be found here:

10532508_10152208681733199_4381549251730248354_nEpisode 50 was this past Monday night, and we had laughter. We had cookies. We had Freudian slips.  We had three amazing women in the studio with us doing a bunch of great things in and around the metro Detroit area.

Whether it’s getting women more involved in technology by teaching them how to code, or being on the other side of that pipeline and helping people get jobs, or even getting a collective of downtown businesses together to help increase their buying power and make it easier for them to be successful and survive, these three are doing some great stuff.

You can listen to that episode in full here:

Don’t forget, you can listen to ALL of the past episodes of our show on Soundcloud at  We’re also out on iTunes, Stitcher, and a bunch of other syndication points to make it easier for you to find us.  Need some details?  Our How To Listen page at will clue you in all the way.

We’ve got a couple blog entries out for you to read, both oldies but goodies that have bubbled up.
