Mike Butcher coming to town: Amsterdam TechCrunched

My vigorous competitor Mike Butcher from TechCrunch UK, that other European tech blog, is coming to town. He organizes a meet-up on July 22nd, with the help of eBuddy and E.Factor.

This photo (taken at next08) represents the whole idea of the geeky gathering: drinks, networking, and press coverage (see his right hand).

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Anyway, the whole idea of my blogging nemeses coming to my safe haven is a little bit hard too take, so I’ll be staying in Italy for two weeks. Say hi to Mike if you see him though, he actually is a nice guy.

The event is almost sold out, so if you haven’t got one of the free tickets – you’ll have to crash this party. Feel free to approach us for advice, we have a great party-crashing track record.
