Make Your Own Damn List

Make Your Own Damn List
One of the things I actually dislike about the Valley is how clique-y it is. It's definitely the case that some groups think of themselves as the "cool kids" in our virtual high school, and act accordingly.

Or have you never wondered why there's always so much press about members of the old Apple mafia?

Anyways, attending the mini Web 2.0 conference that my friends over at PCOW set up this weekend has inspired me. Instead of complaining about the antics of the "A-List", people should make their own damn lists.

Which is why I'm announcing YehCon 1.0, my own personal entrepreneurship conference.

Save the date on your calendar: Wednesday, November 16, from 12-2 PM in Palo Alto.

The goal is to bring together interesting entrepreneurs and thinkers in a way that gives us the good stuff of conferences (hanging with thought-provoking folk) and none of the bad (boring speeches and YAP--yet another panel).

And rather than charging you hundreds of dollars to attend, all you need to do is pay the cost of lunch.

Depending on how many people are interested, I'll find an unsuspecting restaurant that will give us a private room.

As for what we'll do with our time (besides eating and mingling), you're all entrepreneurs--you figure it out.

Post your thoughts on topics and format on the official YehCon wiki:

The password is "joy".

If you think you can make it, add your contact info to the wiki, and I'll eventually get around to setting up an Evite. See you on the 16th!

would love to go but, alas, have classes. Do you know of a good wiki service that's password-less to set up for the Junto group?

Dude, that's the same day and time as the SDForum Innovation Event (http://www.sdforum.org/SDForum/Templates/CalendarEvent.aspx?CID=1752&mo=11&yr=2005).

Are you really making me choose between learning more about how to innovate and meeting fellow entrepreneurs?
