A couple of weeks ago Vani and I went to Lunch 2.0 at the ThisNext office (pictures on their weblog and from Andrew Warner). It was good fun - even if we didn't actually eat anything, with all the people.
To help out we at YellowBot will host the next lunch in Los Angeles, on October 12th! It is in our office in Burbank, so if you live east of Santa Monica it'll be easier to come! :-) RSVP here. Bring business cards and your friendliest face and you'll have a good time.
If you aren't in Los Angeles, then there are lunches being organized in Seattle, San Francisco and New York as well.
