Dotcom Reunion Party -- tonight, Dec. 1
Given the current economic outlook, the dotcom bust of 2000 seems kind of quaint, doesn't it?
If you're looking to reminisce about the glory days and swift demise of the dotcoms of the 1990s, you're in luck. Local entrepreneur and recruiting guru Dakotta Alex is hosting a networking event tonight at The Westin Seattle that he's billing as the First Annual Dotcom Reunion. Whether you're a Web 2.0 enthusiast or just a really big fan of the the Pets.com sock puppet, you're sure to be in good company.
The Westin is located at 1900 Fifth Avenue in downtown Seattle (map here).The gathering starts at 7 p.m. Parking is available at The Westin for $13/hour (for those of you who got rich during the dotcom bubble) and at Pacfic Place for $4/evening. The event features a no-host bar and RSVPs are required (RSVP or get more info here).
If you attend, grab some free pop and worthless stock options for me, will ya?
