Commanding Chaos for Coworking, Open Source and Creative Communities

Florida Creatives Happy Hour 6/18

Fri, 06/15/2007 - 04:11 -- rprice

Third week of the month, the two events we host come around, and I blog/email/post the hell out of it! First of all is likemind.orl at Lake Eola Panera Bread, that happened already this morning, but it happens every month. Alex Rudloff and Ryan Price (that's me) host this event for... well... anyone in Orlando! The fellas in New York got a very nice company named Anomaly to send us some coffee/bagel money, so come for free coffee and good conversation.

Now, for the big news - Florida Creatives Happy Hour is turning 7 months old! Officially our baby is 27 weeks along in its development (but been drinking since day 1? ouch!). I'm really hoping we will be able to get some presence in the local schools once the next year gets started, so I'd like to have a short directed discussion about that, maybe record it, when we feel like we've got "quorum" (enough people to make decisions). John Rife is supposed to be returning from his trip this week, so I'm sure he'll have stories to share. I've also spent the last 2 months on a big recruiting push, and just sent a couple of fresh emails today to local illustrators/podcasters. Not to mention the social networking groups and doing lots of outreach there too. If you're on Upcoming (meaning you have a Yahoo ID), Facebook, VIRB or MySpace, join the groups. Don't forget the mailing list.

If you've never been to a happy hour, all you need to know is BE YOURSELF. We have a very casual atmosphere at Florida Creatives, and we are mostly made up of people who want to make some friends who are passionate about the same things they are. In addition to likeminded friends, we are most of us interested in learning about other disciplines, so we are here to learn as well. Last but not least, there are some of us who want to see this community thrive, and what we can accomplish by getting organized. Admission is free, business cards are plentiful, discussion is honest and friendly. Check us out.
