Today is the third Friday of July. And as such, I went down to Intelligentsia on 53 E. Randolph Street at 8:00 to meet up and chat with anyone who wanted free coffee. Mike Maddaloni is a blogger, dedicated Chicago Likemind-er and owner of Dunkirk Systems. We sat in the front window and talked about the troubles of e-commerce sites until Raza Imam, Managing Partner at Adaptive Solutions, showed up. Then we talked about social networking, what Raza’s company does and strangely effective but ugly websites.
We wore our name badges. Mike and Raza removed them before the photo, but we definitely wore them. Because we like our free coffee, provided by Anomaly. Then we went outside to have our photo taken (which is here). A friend of a friend, Adam, showed up, but couldn’t stay. He just wanted to say hello, and knew I was going to be at Intelligentsia with some folks. Weird how that all works.
