Please Welcome! Disclaimer:I am employed by, however this project is in no way sanctioned by For that matter, nothing I mention on this blog is sanctioned by It’s personal. Get it?

So, having said the disclaimer above, I am still desire some things to happen around Eventful. I really want to see more people’s thoughts on the service and what can be done to improve – as if we didn’t have enough things to do during the day.

What startup isn’t stacked to the brim with things to do? (If you know of one, run away.) We have a list a mile long of cool things we are planning on implementing. But, sometimes we get into this nice comfy bubble saying things like “People want [x]”. Well, maybe people do, maybe they don’t. Maybe they hate [x] with a passion and wish it were never invented. Who knows? Well, the people do.

Hence the introduction of Eventful Talk ( Eventful Talk is not a project by the company. It is a side-project created by me. I want to help the company, of course. But, I also don’t want to see the free speech about the company get drowned out as we get larger – not that it will happen, but that I’m afraid that it happens in almost every company. This is my attempt to make Eventful a great place to work, and a great website to use.

It can only happen with your participation. Whether you use Eventful or not, I am interested in your thoughts on it. Please, tell me what you think about so that the company can make it better!
