Having returned from Jakarta from a full week of meetings I am back in Singapore for a week prior to heading back to Jakarta again for this Yahoo! event – Open Hack Day. It looks to be a big event and will be fun for the those going. Hopefully I will see some of you there?
Lots of meetings this week and hope to meet up with a few startups I have not yet talked to. Will post about them if so. Also hope to nail down the details for Singapore barcamp and the hackerspace party. Stay tuned!
With that I will leave you with some photos from where we had a Yahoo! event. I was interacting with some bloggers and Rama helped me to setup a night to introduce myself and meet the local bloggers and startups in Indonesia. He picked this place called Wetiga and said that it was fun place to meetup.
The setting is simply an outdoor area with a guy making tea and coffee(try the strong hot coffee with ginger), a food cart(stuff was super tasty) and a projector with a big screen. It was hot out but what a fun way to meet people. I won’t forget the experience.

I am going to try and to do this every week so that people can see what has been going on and look for what is happening during the week ahead. My upcoming widget in the sidebar will show you event info and you can see where I am going on TripIt – Dopplr is dead to me now.
It was a busy past week. Had some meetings with local startups like hungrygowhere, gothere, and some others I can’t mention yet. I also attended beer/pizza night at GARAG3 over at the NUS. It was fun to meet everyone and get to know the local startup/incubation scene. It is good to see a group focused on helping startups get productive fast and work on growing their business throughout the region. I plan on doing more with them.
Also want to make people aware of HackerSpace Singapore – I think this is a great idea and really want to see it happen. Pledge now – pledge often. I for one plan on signing up and hope to hang out when I can at the space.
This week I will be in Jakarta. There are 2 events that I will be at:
Mobile Monday and an event I am hasting at Wetiga.
That’s it for now.
