We only launched a little over a month ago, but so far we've been excited to bring the news about what is happening in the Boston tech and innovation community to a wider (and often more national) audience.
Now the team here at BetaBoston wants to build a deeper bond with our local readers and other members of Boston's innovation economy, and nothing beats that then getting together over a drink.
Scott Kirsner was part of the team that launched Boston.com in 1995, and has been writing a column for the Globe since 2000. His work has also appeared in Wired, Fast Company, The New York Times, BusinessWeek, Newsweek, and Variety. Scott is also the author of the books "Fans, Friends & Followers" and "Inventing the Movies," was the editor of "The Convergence Guide: Life Sciences in New England," and was a contributor to "The Good City: Writers Explore 21st Century Boston." Scott also helps organize several local events on entrepreneurship, including the Nantucket Conference and the Convergence Forum. Here's some background on how Scott decides what to cover, and how to pitch him a story idea.
