A Nashville Geek Breakfast Conundrum Solved (I hope)
There’s been lots of discussion on my recent post about trying to find a solution to our Geek Breakfast conundrum. Of the 34 votes I received on my vote on whether to find a new location for breakfast, the results were 26 to 8. That’s 26 people who think we should move.
The trouble is I didn’t think it all through clearly. It isn’t as simple as whether we need to move it or not, so much as it’s about how to keep it intimate enough.
A few different people have suggested what I think is a great solution. We keep the Geek Breakfast at Noshville, but make it run for two hours.
Basically, we’ll have two breakfasts each time. The first one from 7:30 – 8:30 (our usual time), the second from 8:30 – 9:30. Not everybody is an early bird, so this will help solve that too.
I would prefer not to split this community event up by area of the city, it takes away from the importance of us all coming together.
To help promote Geek Breakfast it would be great if you would please consider creating a Wikipedia page. The information needed is available at www.geekbreakfast.org, but since I created Geek Breakfast, I can’t be the one to create the Wikipedia page (it’s against the rules). If you’re so inclined please add it if you have a little free time. Thanks.
