Wednesday, July 16, 2008, 5:30 – 9pm
AS220, 115 Empire Street, Providence, RI
FREE (buy your own food and drink – it’s cheap)

The July Geek Dinner is the last one of the summer (we take “analog” August off). So be sure to join us for what promises to be an excellent evening.

Next week’s Geek Dinner will feature a very new, and super promising Providence-based startup – MoFuse, MoFuse lives where mobile devices meet blogs. From Asian news blogs to American politics and mobile gamers, MoFuse is seeing tremendous traction. They pride themselves at being first to market with features that bloggers and their readers really love. Earlier this year they were the first to launch a mobile blog version for the iPhone. Their approach is gaining them tremendous visibility with some of the best known bloggers including Mashable, ReadWriteWeb and Political Wire. Join Founder and Chief Architect, David Berube and CEO Annette Tonti as they discuss their bootstrapping approach to early development and plans to address a rapidly growing international base of users. And as a special early scoop only for Providence Geeks, they will talk about their upcoming embedded video launch. Free mobile blogs for all who attend! :-)

Update: In anticipation of the presentation, Annette has just posted to the https://florafox.com/ca/markham-15869: A Blog in Every Pocket.

Please RSVP in the comments section of this post so that we can give the good folks at AS220 an estimated headcount. And while you’re at it, subscribe to Providence Geeks’ 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:

  • The event itself is FREE! Beverages and food are for sale at the adjoining bar and Taqueria Pacifica (delicious and cheap)

  • It’s totally casual. Wear whatever, bring whoever, arrive and take off whenever… And don’t worry about eating or not – come famished or full – eating is optional, and frankly, the least of the festivities (that’s not say the food isn’t good—it’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.

  • There is Wi-Fi so bring your connected device of choice.

    Deciding whether I should subject the group to a fussy 7-month-old. (And vice-versa of course.) Signs are pointing to yes.
