Joel on Software Dinner: Bellevue WA Jan 18th

I'm planning to come to Seattle in January to speak at an Amazon.com developer's conference. While I'm there, I thought it would be fun to meet some readers over dinner, so if you're going to be in the area, I hope you will be able to come!

I suggest we meet at the food court at the Crossroads Mall, at 7:30 PM Tuesday, January 18th, 2005.

If & only if you can make it, please add a single comment below so I can get a rough count.

The time & locale are tentative -- before you set out, check the Joel on Software homepage for last-minute changes!

I'm usually not a geek enough to do this, but hey, I live only a couple miles away ... might as well.

Where do you suppose we meet you?  Crossroads mall food court is rather a big area.

Mob indeed. Joel - you really will have trouble finding a good place around Crossroads mall to fit all the eager listeners... May think about reserving a venue, I suspect most of the crowd will gladly pay.
