First post in Seattle?
Anyway, Seattle is very international, I'm living in Ballard and this is a "Scandinavian country" here. We are Finns, minority, most have Norwegian roots but a lot of people around the world.
Now, I would (shamelessly) advertise all to get together in : Protected content or if you don't like Yahoo, not all of us do, and you have LinkedIn access, try my profile Protected content and click the LinkedSeattle icon or if you still like what you (didn't) see - send me a e-mail.
We are a group who love Seattle but also want to make some business. The main thing is that it all has to be fun, an enjoyment - why else would you do it? The Seattle way.
have a nice day and feel free to connect - tuomo
