The Forum kicked off […]

Three Important Changes

Acronyms tend to overwhelm me; and I get anxious when I encounter unfamiliar ones, which is fairly often since we live in a world full of them. You can then imagine my predicament when I attended an information security seminar last week that ISACA (Information Systems Audit and Control Association) put on with ISSA (Information […]

It’s Not Always Easy, But It’s Worth It

Last week our newest CHENner, Mike Spinney, shared with the team an article he wrote for Inc. Magazine in 2006 called, “Learning to Love Networking.” The story of shy guy-turned master glad hander Reed Thompson struck a chord with me. Briefly, the article tells Reed’s story of growing from someone who dreaded attending networking events […]

Bossy Pants…Banning the “B” Word

Like any work day morning, I watch the news while getting ready and try to listen to the first half of Good Morning America (GMA). This morning, I listened to a segment on GMA on banning the word “bossy”— a movement led by Sheryl Sandberg and Anna Maria Chávez. My first reaction was, really? First, […]

Tech Tuesdays: Coming to a City Near You

Networking can be difficult sometimes – but when you have great people and free food and drinks, it makes that whole awkward introduction thing not so awkward anymore! Last night was one of the monthly Tech Tuesday nights at Kingston Station, located in the Downtown Crossing area of Boston. For those not so familiar with […]

Help Wanted: Copy Editor at Bridgewater Associates

It’s not typical for us to use our blog as a job openings/classified section – there are a few not-inconsequential sites that seem to do a solid job on that front! But, this opportunity was shared with us by a close friend – and is so good we wanted to share it with our network. […]

A Night of Firsts and What Did You Just Call Me?

Wednesday night was a red letter day for me, and a fun one for CHEN PR. Chris Carleton and I attended our first Mass Innovation Night at the very cool Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation and had the distinct pleasure of buying everyone a drink at Biagio afterward. It’s a fun and interesting […]

“One of These Innovations is Not Like The Other”…or is it?

Last night, David Beisel gave us yet another very successful WebInno event. Huge crowd, lots of energy, and each company improving even on the innovations seen at the last WebInno (more on that in a sec). As I perused the companies involved, the old Sesame Street matching game ran through my head. Overall, the common […]

Gaming To Go

It would seem logical to expect an evening at MIT focused on mobile gaming to attract a very specific, stereotyped crowd. Instead, the room was filled with investors, attorneys, entrepreneurs and students. Ten years ago people involved in a conversation about video games would likely have been limited to young folks, programmers and a handful […]
