Hi there, I'm wondering if there is a Hamilton-based ICT group for web entrepreneurs, much in the same vein as Unlimited Potential down in Wellington. Really I'm just looking for a place where a bunch of like-minded people can get together over a meal or a beer, talk about ideas for businesses over the web or using the web, bounce ideas of each other about what we need to focus on, and see if can make new relationships to get some of these ideas off the ground - focusing on the fact that most of us have useful skills in either coding or design or analysis or infrastructure, but we often don't have all the skills required to start a company up, or necessarily the capital to pay for these things. Sort of like a web-business collective really I guess. Any thoughts?

Hi Waylon,

I'm in a similar spot  as you (geographically and mentally speaking), except that I'm more focused on consumer desktop software.  I'm trying to make the shift to the cloud-web-mobile though.  Relatively new to the region so afraid I can't offer any suggestions for a group, but would be happy to meet up for a drink sometime. Maybe others seeing this thread will also be inspired to meetup.

Deal. I'll be the one with the yellow umbrella.  Just kidding.  

.... I'll wear a brown plaid shortsleeve shirt.  And if anyone else wants to meet up, post here and we'll look for you too.
See you there!

Alright, I'll be there wearing a tag around my neck from the Hamilton City Council.

There used to be a Hamilton curry night every month, but that sort of disappeared.
If you're a beer nerd, i'd suggest House ;)

(Or join #wlug on undernet, lots of Hamilton based geeks in there)

Oh waylon, Using company time to post on geekzone, I might have to tell your soon departing boss :)

oh wait, im doing it too.  DAMMIT!

For billions of years since the outset of time, every single one of your ancestors survived, every single person on your Mum and Dads side, successfully looked after and passed onto you life.  What are the chances of that like?
