Business Networking that Doesn't Suck

I really like Geoffrey Grosenbach's ruby on rails podcast, especially because it's not just about rails (even though Rails is a keen interest of mine).

On the latest issue, I was excited to learn about biznik.com. "Business Networking that Doesn't Suck" as they say.

I immediately subscribed, but was disappointed to find that there's nothing happening in my local area yet (Singapore), at least not within 6000km.


Something that we should change soon, especially given the attention paid to entrepreneurship in Singapore. Take the efforts of SPRING for example, or the investment that the government is making in Interactive Digital Media.

I love the idea of this site, and hope to find some local compatriots up there soon!

I think it would be really awesome to see a Biznik community happening in Singapore. It's super easy to start - just pick a bar, and invite a few friends, and put it into the Biznik calendar!

Here's the url: http://biznik.com/events/new

Also, if you do that, I'd love to blog about what you're doing over there, because I'm sure it would be very interesting to Biznik members here.

Let us know how we can support you.

Best,
Dan McComb
Biznik cofounder

Thanks for the encouragement Dan. Time to talk to a few friends who might be up for getting something started...

Make it happen Paul. We'll totally make it worth your time investment from this side of the pond, promise!
