The Naked Truth
This Thursday night in Seattle I am going to participate in a fun event organized by Seattle entrepreneurs called The Naked Truth. The name is misleading because everyone is coming fully clothed and since there will be bloggers like me and Mike Arrington involved, we don't have to deal with tricky things like the truth.
The topic is, you guessed it, how to make money on the Internet. The way they are going to bring this topic to life is put three local entrepreneurs, the founders of Picnik, Animoto, UrbanSpoon, together with three so-called experts, me, Mike Arrington, and Damon Darlin. The entrepreneurs are going to talk about the ways they make money and the so-called experts do the color commentary. The whole thing will be moderated by Glenn Kelman, CEO of Redfin who will keep us honest and the conversation moving. It sounds like a fun format.
Even better, the event is outside in a park and they've got a cash bar:
When: July 9, 2009, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. panel, 7:30 – 9:30 party
Where: Olympic Sculpture Park Pavilion, 2901 Western Avenue, Seattle
- Damon Darlin, New York Times
- Fred Wilson, Union Square Ventures, AVC
- Michael Arrington, TechCrunch
- Jonathan Sposato, CEO, Picnik
- Brad Jefferson, CEO, Animoto
- Glenn Kelman, CEO, Redfin
- Ethan Lowry, Co-Founder, urbanspoon
The event is sold out (sorry for the delay in posting this news). Here's a link to a page with the best info on the event.
I don't get to Seattle very often and I'm there for a few days of vacation with the Gotham Gal so I won't be doing any meetings when I am in town, but I am very excited to be taking part in this Naked Truth event. If you live in Seattle, I hope I see you there.
