The NFI Studios blog had a very nice post about our little group today. I want to thank Lynda Raphael (any relation to Sterling?) for writing such a positive post. She even quoted Mr. Richard Florida (who is not the namesake for our group, but) whose writings are often compared with our grassroots community-building efforts here in Orlando and around the state.

Here's some of what Lynda wrote:

I just noticed on a PeachPit Press blog that Blog Orlando was mentioned. Normally I don't read their blogs, but I happened to come

Someone sent me an email this morning saying that was running a story on the upcoming BarCamp on Sept 23rd at Taste. The article is "A gathering of the geeks", and it sports a picture of a few people's hands and Jason Siefer's head (and one unidentified programmer, but I think he's an ORUG guy too).

Some time ago, I was cruising the Coworking wiki and I saw some info about Jelly, which is essentially "living room coworking". I remember making an edit to the wiki at the time and adding Orlando and a link here or an email to invite people over for Jelly at my place, but I can't even find that entry now.

You may remember from the January Happy Hour two dudes that came in and chatted for a bit - Butch and Tod. I think it's safe to say they're best friends, but I digress... See, Tod used to run an open mic night at Will's Pub called SPEAKEASY. Well, Butch brought his camera, interviewed some people, caught some of the performances on tape, eventually making a short film.
