Meet ups rule, even for VCs (the smart ones, especially)

The economy may be as twitchy as a skittish horse, but that doesn’t mean good ideas don’t happen. I love this VC meet and greet idea from Kent Goldman, part of the team at the most excellent First Round Capital–a caffeinated *office hours* in Palo Alto. Kent Goldman and Rob Hayes will be the objects of desire at this one, but Christine Herron has vowed to appear at a later event, RSVPS requested.

Susan sez: We’ve been doing real time events as a way to promote another funding source, the Knight News Chsllenge, and that has been going really well, though we want to make sure people with ideas apply to newschallenge.org before the November 1st deadline.
