GenuineVC David Beisel's Perspective on Digital Change

October 24, 2005

Last month, Rags Gupta and I put together a very informal meetup of like-minded individuals interested in internet / Web2.0 / mobile innovation based in the Boston/Cambridge area. Attendees included entrepreneurs (both self-funded & VC-backed), a few VCs, and a number of forward-thinking people excited about the space. Based on the excitement from that get-together, I am organizing another one and spreading the word via my blog here. All who are interested in attending are welcome and encouraged to invite others to join as well.

Boston Web Innovators Meetup
November 8th 2005 @ 6:30pm
Location in Cambridge TBD, depending on attendee interest
Please RSVP on this wiki: http://www.seedwiki.com/wiki/bostonweb/

This event is going to be a slightly more structured than the previous one. For example, to start off, we are planning on having a few self-funded start-ups give a five minute demo. If you are interested in presenting, please e-mail me.

I’ll also post an update with additional details on this blog, and am looking forward to seeing everyone in two weeks.

(Hat tip to the folks over at TechCrunch for what looks to have become a good model for organizing events like these.)

    @epaley in June 223K new jobs, but 432K people dropped out of labor force… participation fell to lowest in nearly 40 yrs

    @epaley doesn't make sense when lower unemp % being driven mostly by ppl dropping out of labor force, not getting new jobs

    @epaley but some have suggested US is moving to a lower equilibrium for full employment, e.g. "normal" unemp % is now lower than historical

    @epaley yes net job creation is obviously good… monthly avg in 2015 slower than 2014, but still a bit over 200k/mo thus far thru 1H

    @shaig most fintech focus on pymts & lending, I'd also try to include speakers that can touch on insurance too (will think on suggestions)
