As a new blogger, I suspect that my readership is sufficiently small that I can still discuss private information without getting into much trouble with my portfolio companies...
For several months earlier this year, I incubated a company at Bessemer named Flock (or perhaps I should say "I shepherded the Flock"). Flock has an outstanding team led by Bart Decrem, the marketing mastermind at Mozilla Foundation behind Firefox' phenomenal launch.
Well, if you plan to attend the Open Source Convention, or if you just happen to live in Portland OR, I am extending to you an eVite I just received to meet the Flock. Here's what the eVite said:
From: Flock Team
Location: Doug Fir Lounge, 830 E Burnside,Portland,Oregon
When: Tuesday, August 2, 8:00pm
Phone: 503 231 WOOD
It's not every day that you get to introduce an Internet-shattering idea, so we intend to do it right. Come one, come all, we're havin' ourselves a Flocktastic party to celebrate the launch of the world's first social browsing company!
This is happening on the opening night of OSCON, so after you've hit the "Tuesday Evening Extravaganza", come to the *real* party at the Doug Fir, starting at 8pm!
If you wish to attend, please post a comment so we know how many extras to expect.
