Geeks on a Train leaves this Thursday morning

May 22, 2012|Gus G. Sentementes

All aboard! What are you doing this Thursday?

It's nice to see an idea that percolated in the Baltimore Tech Facebook group months ago get birthed into reality this week. The "Geeks on a Train" event is about connecting Baltimore's tech community with other communities along the so-called Amtrak Corridor in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

[See my original blog post on it from back in November.]

If you've got a day to ride the rails from DC to Boston, and meet entrepreneurs and techies in stops along the way, GOAT is for you. The Greater Baltimore Tech Council took the lead in organizing an itinerary for the trip, which you'll see here.

You're responsible for paying your way, with transportation and lodging. Details are here at the GBTC site.

The GOAT crew will stop in NYC for a meetup there, and presumably lunch.

Sadly, I won't be able to ride the train with you all, but I'll be following the tweets and such. Who's blogging it?
