Justin rightfully broke this story, and kudos to him for making it happen. Justin gets a lot of flack from bloggers and 2.0 types because he’s one of the voices of Oracle in the blogosphere. To his credit, he’s done more to turn the ship than any of us, while simultaneously get beat up internally and externally.
So, I’m happy to announce that thanks to Justin (and Marius and Tim, who started an Oracle version of Lunch 2.0), Oracle will be hosting Lunch 2.0 (RSVP) on October 22, 2007, 12 to 2, at the Oracle Conference Center in Redwood Shores, CA, USA.
AppsLab will be in attendance, as will many others from around the Valley, including Jeremiah Owyang, who could probably take credit for pushing us in this direction.
This should be a fun event. Even if you’re on the fence about new web, you should come by just to hang out and make snarky comments. Maybe we’ll go streaking around the lake.
Update: Fake Larry has taken over the organization and guest list for Lunch 2.0 because “We can’t let the Apps people frig the whole thing up. It’s just too important.” Lulz.
