The UT Blogger/Geek Dinner was a lot of fun despite the power outage about halfway through the meal. Here are some snapshots of the group.
Of course, we had Charlie Oliver recreate his famous Geek Money Shot, this time with Mark Freestone!
You can see all the photos here:
Coworking in Salt Lake City is pretty posh at BetaLoft. Here are some photos that I took the other day.
BetaLoft is in this building.
You have to go up the stairs to get there.
There is a TV, so you can play games on the Xbox 360.
There are plenty of comfortable desks and power strips so you can plug in your laptop and work.
BetaLoft is a comfortable and nice place to work. If you are self-employed and need an office and friendly people to hang out with, it’s perfect!
Last time we were at Paradise Bakery, Charlie and Jason posed for this photo. I’m hoping that they are both there this time for a recreation.

We had CodeAway at BetaLoft last Saturday and it was so much better for us! There was plenty of room for computers and power strips aplenty! The big television set was set up to play Rock Band before we even got there!
It was so fun, that I forgot to take pictures until the very end when every one was leaving. Here are a couple of shots that I snapped.
It rained like crazy that day and the raindrops hitting the skylight made it sound even worse. Despite the rain, we had a great turnout!
A special thank you to XMission and The Gadgets Page for sponsoring CodeAway!

CodeAway is a monthly gathering in the Salt Lake City, Utah area for Entrepreneurs, Web developers, IT people, Bloggers, Designers, and anyone who feels comfortable in “a room full of geeks.”
Each CodeAway lasts four hours, and you can come and go as you please. There is also Wifi and lots of power strips, so bring your laptop! For those less serious about work, video games are also provided.
This month, we’re bringing Rock Band 2, so be prepared to rock out!
I’m totally stoked about being at BetaLoft today! I rode my bike down to 357 West 200 South and enjoyed the sun and the idea that I would be able to enjoy the day at Salt Lake’s first coworking place. After months of planning, Drew Tyler has finally brought coworking to the Salt Lake Valley!
Back in January, I wished so hard for a coworking place in Utah that it finally came true:
Back then, I said that an hour and twenty minute commute was too long for me to do every day. Since I rode my bike to BetaLoft, it took almost forty minutes for me to get here, so I’ve been proven a liar.
I guess a long commute is only acceptable to me if I’m able to do it on a bike.
If you are self-employed and live in the Salt Lake Valley, come try out BetaLoft for free for the next two weeks:
