Pittsburgh TechCrunch

Thanks, Venky, for the tip about the Silicon Valley TechCrunch.

TechCrunch is an occasional, informal gathering of early stage entrepreneurs, geeks, and bloggers in the Silicon Valley -- people who want to be in on the very latest stuff for emerging Web technology and are happy to hang in a low-key BYO environment. There are presentations, and there is corporate involvement.

All of which sounds like something that Pittsburgh could use. All it takes is a couple of people -- people with companies -- to sponsor it and get it off the ground.

I think its a great idea. I'd be willing to help get this started, but I can't say off hand if I can commit my company's (MAYA Design) resources or sponsorship, but I can commit my own.

hey Erik - long time no see - I am in as well. Need to look into the corporate sponsorship.

This sounds a bit similar to NextStep, a local forum of tech entreprenuers, that we had a few years ago. I'd be happy to share some of the experiences from that, if it would help yinz.

We do have a couple of other networking groups around time--There's Dowe's Jazz Club on Thursday nights and there's Pittsburgh Product Strategy Network. Those are the most helpful I've found.
