Next Week in Philly Tech 2015/09/07

Just say hi!

Last week, I had a meeting at La Colombe in Fishtown with Josh Detweiler CEO at @AppJaxx.  Figuring I would get some work done I went over a bit early.  The seating is open bench style.  I sat down next to a few folks talking, lo and behold they were talking a bit of tech.   As they finished up Josh had arrived.  Before Josh and I started to talk I decided to introduce myself, awkward perhaps but I really do have a passion for software and learning from others.   I am very glad I just said hi.   In his humbleness, this individual told us about his background, his Jiu-Jitsu studios, and the tech projects he has going on.  Great conversation and left it there.

Over the weekend in a strange coincidence showing up in my FB stream was a 'like' for a video - "The Road To Becoming a 6th Degree Gracie Black Belt at 39 Years Old" from an old friend about Phil Migliarese.  The person in the video, I could swear was the guy from the coffee shop.   I messaged my friend and Phil, turns out it is a small world.
