Wasatch Front Webloggers to Meet

You may remember Gilbert Lee when he was a web designer for Utah.gov. He left us to design for Northrop Grumman and now has his own successful firm PlainSimple Design, LLC at www.plainsimple.org. Gilbert has just volunteered to organize the Salt Lake City Weblogger Meetup. He encourages SLC bloggers to come out and meet others doing the same. The first meeting is Wednesday, September 15 at 7:00 p.m. at the Sugarhouse Barnes & Noble Cafe, 1104 East 2100 South, Salt Lake City (map).

You can register and RSVP for the Meetup at blog.meetup.com/144/ or just show up. "I'm really excited how this group will go," bubbles an enthusiastic Lee. "I know there are a lot of bloggers out there and it will be interesting to see how blogging in Utah will be like in the years to come." Everyone is welcome and it'll be a great networking event!

The meetup group includes Brian Sweeting, editor of the internationally famous www.sweeting.net blog and creator of the Springville City syndicated newsfeeds. Former Salt Lake County Commissioner Bart Barker, a member since the first meetup, has to miss this event, but promises to be there in the future. Barker collaborates with LaVarr Web and others in the richly informative Talking Points Weblog, Utah's political Weblog, at www.utahpolicy.com.
