This is all very last minute, but the new Fishburners on Oxford St is ready to go and we have some cool things lined up tomorrow.
The lord mayor, Clover Moore, is popping through tomorrow morning between 10am and 11am to check our progress. She’ll also have a media entourage in tow and I know the city wants to really push hard with media and highlight the good stuff they’re doing out here, so there may be media opportunities for anyone who comes over.
As an additional carrot to tempt people across the other side of town, I’m arranging for Ryan Junee to come in and chat. For those that don’t know, he was one of the first success stories to come out of Y-Combinator. He founded Omnisio, the video annotation tool, that since got acquired by Youtube and is the reason you see all those comments etc popping up over videos.
He’s one of the main guys in the “aussie mafia” over in the valley and is a really interesting guy.
If you think you can make it, please let me know ASAP. You’re welcome to stay for the day and use the facilities. Since we only just started, there are over 20-30 desks available here and your wi-fi will just roam over.
