First, let me introduce myself -
My name is Brendan Sera-Shriar a.k.a. digibomb.
I’m a WordPress designer, developer, and blogger, social addict, techy, father, community manager and builder, toy geek, collector of many things, and published author from Montreal, Canada.
More about me
OK, back to the point of this post, what is ThinkUp? There are many meetups, I know ‘cause I attend a good majority of them and even organize a few :) For a while now I’ve thought about putting together a social gathering of sorts where professionals, students, enthusiast, and just those interested in learning and thinking about community both online and offline can come together and share their knowledge, experiences, and ideas.
The idea is simple - come drink, chat, learn, and think in a casual setting. The structure would be an open forum, kind of like a demo camp or ignite, but no slides - I envision something more like a round table where we discuss and debate openly - we ThinkUp!
If this is something you’re interested in and you live in the Montreal area let me know. I’m in the process of organizing the first ThinkUp in Montreal so all feedback, suggestions, and ideas are welcome.
I’ll use this blog as a way to post information about upcoming ThinkUp’s and to recap each one. I also see this as a shared space where we can ThinkUp (yes I know , stop branding :) ) anything we want.
So, let’s do this!
