“A New Blog in Town” The driving force to me is to create a more connected and collaborative startup scene in Seattle. There are a few groups, people and entities doing that already so I don't expect to duplicate, but to collaborate and divulge their work. Today I'm starting the Seattle 2.0 site/blog. I'm not 100% sure of the focus of this blog, but what I've got so far:
It will be...
local to the Puget Sound;
relevant to entrepreneurs, technology geeks, startups and investors;
about entrepreneurship, startups and Web 2.0;
Hopefully, this blog/site will define and scope itself as time goes by. Or it will disappear into the oblivion in a couple of months.
