Silicon Beach drinks is a community gathering held every Friday bringing together entrepreneurs & Geeks from local the Sydney area as well as visitors. http://groups.google.com/group/silicon-beach-australia Silicon Beach is a highly active community that seeks to connect & support the Australian Information, Communications and Technology sector. It includes the regular Friday Drinks, more focused events such as Start Up Camps & a very active discussion list that I recommend you join if you haven’t already.

This Friday, Betsy Aoki is taking time out of her holiday in Australia to hang out with Silicon Beach crowd, meet some of our local Twitterati and has very kindly offered to sponsor the drinks :) So it’s a great chance to meet & have a drink with both Betsy & the ever growing local Start Up community.

If you haven’t met Betsy before, she is perhaps best known in Australia as Microsoft's "Blog Queen," Betsy Aoki launched Microsoft’s corporate blogging efforts but she’s also done a variety of other community projects: Live QnA, Xbox LIVE Indie Games, and now works on social media strategies for Bing.
