Yesterday I finally took the time to update the events sidebar here on blogstring to include upcoming events. I asked my twitter friends for events, trolled the usual suspects (going.com, upcoming, etc) and even did some Google searching. This morning, Don Dodge’s post Boston startup events and resources was in my RSS reader. Here’s the rundown from both.

4/8- TechTuesday- From Don Dodge’s post:
Tech Tuesday is for geeks, tech savvy professionals, DIY-ers, press, and other industry luminaries for an informal gathering. Bring your laptops, robots, OLPC XO’s, Amazon Kindles, new cell phones, gadgets, and other new-fangled devices. Tech Tuesday meets the second Tuesday of every month. Microsoft is a sponsor this month.

From the site:
Join the Council’s Entrepreneurial Cluster as we talk with a panel of entrepreneurs that have built companies from the ground up and know the ins and outs of building great teams. What really makes a team come together? How can you be sure that you are bringing in the right folks? Who should be hired first, second, next? We’ll talk about teams at the senior management level and at the BOD level. This is sure to be a lively discussion and a great chance to get answers to some of the tough questions that we all wrestle with in building companies.
