Actualizing a social network -- that's what attracted me to sNice Coffee Shop on 8th Avenue this morning. Noah Brier, co-founder of Percolate, was behind the get-together.
I first met Noah a few years back while photographing an EFFIES Award judging session, and then again at a " Big Business Breakfast" started by Benjamin Palmer of The Barbarian Group, where Noah was camped out at the time. LIKEMIND is another of Noah's co-iterations started awhile ago -- to get "online relationships offline" -- and he was instigating a re-boot. It had been somewhat withering on the vine even though it has an international set of followers. He explains it all on his interesting blog HERE.
Since so much of today's reality exists with us individually sitting in front of computer screens, it's good to get out and actually meet the people we're "talking" to; or maybe some of the people that those we're talking to are talking to. People who do things like online media publishing, or marketing 3D printers, or photographers . . .
At any rate, there were a considerable number of people there, especially given the early hour.
And the latte was VERY good.
