TechLife Columbus Update - week of 5/4/09
Hope this message finds you well and that you're getting out and enjoying the nice weather.
HiLo Ride June 27
What happens when the Columbus high tech community intersects with the low impact mission of the Columbus biking community?
You get the HiLo Bike Ride – a rolling and rocking 65-mile scenic leisure bike ride, overnight camping on a beautiful organic farm, live music, great food, and a community testament to the use of bikes as a true means of transportation. All organized, promoted and staged by the central Ohio technology and biking community.
Be part of on building our shared vision for a hi tech community steeped in a culture of lo impact and environmental sustainability
- Pawan Murthy and the PEP Talks crew for putting on a incredible event to connect local students with inspiring local professionals . As Nicole Thomas said:
“ The PEP Talks are fantastic! This was the first one I attended, and I was very impressed by the entire event. The presenters were genuine and personable, and the content was relevant for professionals and students alike. The passion and energy in the room has inspired me to bring some people with me next time -- I couldn't be more proud of the great work taking place in the Columbus community! And of course, events like these wouldn't be possible without the sponsors. Thank you to TechColumbus and ClearSaleing for sponsoring the event, and to BMW Financial for providing the iPod Touch raffle (very cool -- I never win anything! And we're really enjoying the Mini Cooper game!). ”
