The first ever Columbus, Ohio TechCrunch/CrunchGear Meet-up: Aftermath


So we had about 45-50 people at the event tonight and I was amazed at the energy and excitement here in my hometown, good old Columbus. I met the guy who sold me a car this weekend and the guy who invented the PowerSquid. There are a few start-ups and products I’m going to highlight this week and I’m pleased to say that these folks are amazingly excited and enthusiastic, even in a down economy.

Here’s to you, Columbus. I’ve been so coast-centric this decade that I failed to see your true worth and the beauty of your bar culture. Special thanks to CG writer Scott (scott at, if you want to get in touch with him) for suggesting the joint.
