In two weeks, I will be visiting São Paulo, Brazil for the first time.  I'm in town for five days, with the main draw for me being my ½ day speaking at Lotus "Top Gun" training.  This is only my second business trip to South America, and the first to feature one-on-one customer meetings, so I'm quite looking forward to the experience.

The question of the day is, would Paulistas be interested in a geekdinner?  For those who have not been, the term "geekdinner" is caringly applied to IT folks or even IT aficionados.  In other words, you don't really have to be a geek or a nerd to attend a geekdinner.  It's just an informal way for people who participate in an electronic community to get together in person.  I skipped the opportunity when I was in Rio a couple of years back (other than running into a blog reader at hotel checkout), since that trip was truly an off-grid week.  For this trip, I can think of no better experience than sitting in a great churrascaria  with large plates of meat, a cold chopp, and some friendly Brasilians. Are you out there?  Let me know via comment or e-mail.  I'm in town from the 20th to the 24th.  And yes, I know, in São Paulo, another good dining choice would be sushi in Liberdade ...
