What We Did At The St. Louis ReadWriteWeb Meet-Up

Meet-ups make me nervous. Like a teenager at a birthday party, I’m never sure if people are going to show up or not. Last night, ReadWriteWeb writers David Strom, Joe Brockmeier and yours truly walked into The Drunken Fish (yes, that’s really the name of this sushi joint), dropped off our “go here for the ReadWriteWeb meet-up” signs, and marched upstairs to the lounge area where we anxiously awaited the arrival of fellow tech enthusiasts to the St. Louis ReadWriteWeb meet-up.

As the lights dimmed on the second-floor of this swank, lounge-y spot in the Central West End neighborhood, we ate too much sushi, talked about the future of e-commerce and mobile payments with Aisle411.com COO Matthew Kulig, met the future of IT in the form of Washington University students, and found ourselves fascinated with Openly Disruptive, a collective that believes the future is “too important to leave to the professionals.”

More techies wandered in as the chatter grew to a buzz. We were joined by representatives from two mentoring services, Venture Advisors and Capital Innovators, and folks from cloud service providers Joyent.com and Contegix.com, web design and development firm SpryDigital.com, cloud services firm and hosting provider, Datotel.com. We swapped business cards, we shook hands, we nodded at each other and looked to the future of tech. Here are some photos from the event.
