Are you an Oracle blogger attending Oracle Open World 2009?

If so, you are invited to attend this Oracle Bloggers Meetup during OOW 2009 — a chance to meet your online buddies face-to-face in relaxed and informal atmosphere.

What: OOW 2009 Bloggers Meetup

When: Tue, 13-Oct, 6:00pm

Where: LJ’s Martini Club & Grill @ Metreon 2nd Floor, 101 4th Street, San Francisco Updated: 13-Oct!

It’s a big disappointment that Eddie Awad is not going to be with us at the Oracle Open World this year… But the show must go on and Oracle Bloggers Meetup must happen again this year so I’m picking up the baton from Eddie and will organize the meetup this year with the help of Justin Kestelyn and Lillian Buziak (Oracle ACE Wrangler).

First things first, thanks to OTN for sponsoring our gathering again — just like the last year, we will have drinks served for a while. But there are some differences from the previous years…

This year, the meetup is NOT hosted in a pub but DON’T PANIC. We’ve got it covered. We have booked the special function room and ordered some snacks and, of course, drinks will be served. The meetup is hosted at Jillian’s Billiards Club on the 4th Floor in Natoma Room with a nice view (so I guess smokers won’t be disappointed). This is just couple blocks from the Moscone Center. Address — 101 4th Street, San Francisco. I emphasize again — it’s not in the pub itself but on the 4th floor in one of the function room.

The Oracle Bloggers Meetup is on Tuesday, 13-Oct starting at 6PM. You probably don’t want to be too late and miss the fun (and food). The venue is booked until 8PM so at this point we will most likely move on.

It will be, obviously, easier to talk to each other than if we host it in the pub. We also plan to have a small fun program and we have some ideas. Of course, the content won’t be decided until the last minute so please contact me with your ideas by email {last_name} at

I have created the event in Oracle Community — please make sure to RSVP so that we can esstimate the number of people coming. Don’t worry if you are not sure just yet — RSVP “Maybe” for now and change it later.

The bloggers meetups during the Oracle Open World were started by Mark Rittman, continued by Eddie Awad last year. They have been great success so let’s keep it this way! To give you an idea, here are the photos from the last meetup courtesy of Eddie Awad.

Looking forward to see you all there!
