The first event is January 21, and is being put on by Dealmaker Media as part of their Strategy Series events: In the Trenches: Cutting Costs in a Tight Economy. The format is Q&A around a conference table with four "speakers" and a moderator. One of the other speakers is someone I know well: Seth Sternberg, founder of Meebo. He's a very smart guy who, as a Sequoia portfolio CEO, can tell you all about the "RIP good times" strategy.
January 21, 2009 | 6:30 - 8:30PMIf you're interested, you need to register by 3pm on the 21st (Dealmaker events almost always sell out).
