A typical evening at Refresh.
If you’re up at 7 AM, Milad and Aloka G from Refresh Colombo will be on MTV Sports. I’ll be co-hosting, alarm willing. Refresh is geek/IT professional meetup that happens every month. It’s an international meme that’s spread to Colombo, to good effect.
Refresh is important cause it lets geeks see each other and share information and hopefully start working together, incubating startups and awesomeness. Right now they’re working with some Silicon Valley chaps to feature five Sri Lankan ideas on This Week In Startups. Every month they have talks attended by tweeps, bloggers, developers, business people and even a few venture capitalists.
The scene has come a long way in two years, and it’s great that this community exists. If you’re awake at the ungodly hour of seven and own a TV, check it out. MTV Sports.
