Shout out to 50 Columbus linchpins

I spent last week unplugging and spending a good ole fashioned spring break (no not the Ft. Lauderadale spring break of college) but time with the family in a cabin in Pigeon Forge Tennessee. (here's where we stayed - Boy did I need it.

During the break I took a little time to reflect on what an incredible community we live in. I truly believe that anything is possible in our community when we work together. Here's a list of some the hard working organizers in our community who make things happen. I've been fortunate to collaborate with each of them, through TechLife, in different ways.

If you see them - give em a big thank you. They are some of the most critical linchpins in our tech/entrepreneur community.

As Seth Godin states in his latest book Linchpin
Linchpins invent, lead(regardless of title), connect others, make things happen, and create order out of chaos.

Kudos to our linchpins. Who do you see as a linchpin? Who did I miss?
