Startup Riot Seattle locks me outBy http://profile.typepad.com/1237764140s22740 // August 8, 2012 in Lawyers
Startup Riot is holding an event in Seattle today.
I wanted to go. I submitted an application and paid the fee.
But I was rejected!
Was it because I practice law? I don't know. Can you tell from the email thread?
Update 10:58 PM Pacific: at Sanjay Parekh's request, I have taken down the screenshot of my email exchange with him. I have also asked him why I was excluded.
I wanted to go as the blogger, commentator and analyst I am of the startup scene.
Maybe my lawyer self is getting in the way of my blogger / mentor / investor / startuper self!
Update 10:47 AM Pacific: a loyal reader - and pillar of the Seattle startup scene - just sent me this picture of the event. Pretty quiet looking, for a riot.
