July 2014 update: We’ve moved! (More than once.) St. Charles Deli is long since closed, but the “SOB” acronym lives on. Follow @S_O_Breakfast on Twitter to find out where we’re currently congregating. For now, we’re trying the Georgia Tech Hotel again.
For about a year now, I’ve been loosely coordinating an open breakfast at St. Charles Deli on Monday mornings. It typically consists of GT staff, some students (graduate and undergraduates), and local entrepreneurs. Roughly speaking, the crowd gathers between 7:30 and 8:30. There’s no agenda, no organization, just smart people gathering to eat breakfast, drink coffee, and talk about interesting topics.
Discussions range from startup financing to programming language wars to rocketry to anything else on our minds. Sometimes, only two or three people show up. This morning we had record attendance with fourteen people!
You can get a decent breakfast for three bucks, or a cup of Jittery Joe (which some people claim is better than Starbucks, and cheaper). Feel free to join us!
