Hi all!

Just want to let folks know (for those who don't already) that Startup
Weekend is coming to Toronto, September 14-16. The idea behind Startup
weekend is to get 60+ people together in one building to brainstorm
and create a Web 2.0 company in a single weekend.

>From the website:

"Create a new startup web company in 1 weekend, wind up owning a share
of the enterprise, meet some great people in both your own field and
beyond, have a great time and even have the chance to have YOUR idea
become the focus for the new venture. What is the value of an original
share in Google, Facebook or MySpace worth now?"

"Everyone who registers will be able to share ideas and have a say on
the final product selection. Those who contribute and complete the
weekend marathon will receive "founders" shares for their efforts."

So far this is the only Startup Weekend planned for Canada, and their
first international event.  The organizers are looking for people in
the following areas:

Business (Marketing / PR)
Creative (Design)
Creative (User Experience)
Videography / Blogging / Communications
Client Side (XHTML, CSS, Javascript, XML)
Server Side (PHP/MySQL, ASP.NET/MSSQL, CGI/Perl, JAVA, Ruby, ColdFusion)

rested on their trust in the wisdom of a well-informed citizenry,
their ingenious design for checks and balances, and their belief that
the rule of reason is the natural sovereign of a free people." - Al
Gore (The Assault on Reason, 2008)

safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."  - Benjamin Franklin
