All Aboard! Geeks on a Train is Happening May 24th

On Thursday, May 24, 2012, there will be a rolling tweetup (#geektrain) on Amtrak headed north from DC and Boston.

Back in November on the Baltimore Tech Facebook group, Mike Subelsky suggested a radical idea to bridge the underrepresented communities of the East Coast corridor by organizing a mobile tech event via the Amtrak rail system.

Geeks on a Train is a step toward creating a Northeast tech corridor between DC and Boston.

On May 24, 1844, Samuel Morse sent the first telegraph message between the Supreme Courthouse in DC and the B&O Roundhouse in Baltimore.

As a hat tip to this advancement in electronic communication (and a convenient tie-in to Baltimore train stations), on Thursday, May 24, 2012, there will be a rolling tweetup (#geektrain) on Amtrak headed north from DC and Boston.

We invite all investors, community organizers, entrepreneurs, bloggers, developers, designers, and others from tech communities along the way to ride the train with us. Sign up for GOAT and don’t forget your train tickets. Registration is for head count purposes only. You are responsible for the purchase of your train tickets, lodging, and return trip.
