August, normally a vacation month, is host this year to a number of compelling events for entrepreneurs.
Guy Kawasaki is speaking at BayChi Tue Aug 14 7-9pm on “By the Numbers: How I built a Web 2.0, User-Generated Content, Citizen Journalism, Long-Tail, Social Media Site for $12,107.09” where he will explain why and how he launched Truemors.com using open-source software, contractors, favors, and cajoling. He will also cover the current entrepreneurial and venture-capital funding conditions. Guy has blogged about the launch of Truemors.
There is an optional dinner at 5:30 in Palo Alto at Kan Zeman Restaurant on 274 University Avenue, there is no charge for the event but dinner attendees must pay cash for meal+tax+tip.
Expect a full report, Francis and I plan to attend.
