Lunch 2.0 “Web Expo” at Hitachi Data Systems continuing to get signups

Watermelon is the theme of Lunch 2.0, Yum!

The Lunch 2.0 organizers and I published the invite last Monday, and we have over 50 RSVPs –that’s pretty strong. There’s room for more folks to sign up –I encourage you to do so.

In the spirit of transparency, this event is FOR the web community and hosted by Hitachi Data Systems, but there’s an opportunity for us to all learn about each other. In my nakedness, of course we’d love to have conversations about data storage needs for data hungry web companies 🙂

Either way, lots and lots of learning between visitors, web companies, and Hitachi Data Systems.

I’m practicing what I’m preaching, as I’m only using social media tools to get the word out, blogs, (see who’s blogged about it) word of mouth, and a few followup emails or invites to key members of the community (zero dollar marketing). I also believe in giving to the community, and they’ll embrace back, hopefully the web community will see and appreciate this.

Soon I’ll be making a decision regarding some of the last companies that will show off at the expo at no charge, stay tuned. If you can’t make it, the event will be full documented via flickr, and videos. The last events were chronicled on this video, (love the music) and here on Flickr.
