Seattle Startup Drinks Recap

Last night was another successful Seattle Startup Drinks event.  About 20 people showed up at the People’s Pub in Ballard for beer and tech talk.  Of note to me personally was that this was the first time I’d showed off Crowdify on the iPhone, and it worked reasonably well as a demo platform.

Interestingly, the founder of i-booze.com, Karim Varela, was in attendance. Karim got blasted a couple months ago on the Seattle Tech Startups mailing list.  I give him credit for taking his virtual lumps and coming out to support the community! Funny note: his business card has a little liquor bottle running around on wheels with a lit cigarette sticking out of its ass.  No, no, no, Karim: the cigarettes go in the mouth, not the ass!

I also got to meet tweep Danielle Morrill last night for the first time in person.  She’s been a very public online presence for Whrrl, which is one of my current favorite Seattle startups.

Continued mad props to Cassie Wallender for putting in the time to organize the Seattle Startup Drinks events.  You rock Cassie!

    Hi Anthony – it was fun to meet you. I didn’t get to see a demo of Crowdify, is it available in the app store?

    Hi Danielle! It’s on the web at http://www.crowdify.com/. Would love your feedback when you get a minute.

    Aw, thanks for coming out, Anthony, as well as blogging about it. I had a great time chatting with everyone – what a great group. 🙂
