BlogRoll Taken Offline

It appears that the Geek BlogRoll we've had posted here, which is hosted by a third-party service, has been causing some issues with loading the rest of the site. Sadly, it has been removed from the site, perhaps permanently. A contributing factor is that it has gotten to be rather lengthy and a bit unmanageable. If you've got suggestions on a better way to link to our "members," please hit the comments.

Geek Social Lands at the Saucer

This month Geek Social, sponsored by local software development firm Firefly Logic, moves to a new location. On Thursday, May 7, from 6:00-8:00 pm, head to the billiards room at the Flying Saucer behind Union Station. Geek Social is a monthly, no-agenda meeting of the minds of local talent—a chance to hang out with the other geeks in the community and see what's going on.

The Geek Social is open to geeks of all types; you don’t have to be a software geek, just a geek in your industry (you know who you are). We have project management geeks, graphic designer geeks, and even a film production geek. No RSVP is required, so just show up!
