What is Coffee for No Reason? 

It's an occasional gathering of people who work in tech, biotech, media, and the wider start-up world. The objective? To drink coffee together for absolutely no reason. Essentially, it's a chance to take a break from work, meet some interesting people, and hear what they're up to. (The other devious purpose is that my co-host, Jimmy Guterman, and I use the event as an excuse to give away free copies of all of the business/tech books we've accumulated in recent months.)

So here's how it works: we'll be in the front room of the Kendall Square Cosi on Wednesday, December 23rd from 9 to 11 AM. The next event is Friday, March 12th from 9 to 11 AM.  You stop by to say hello and drink some coffee (and perhaps grab a book. If you have goodies of your own to give away, that's great, too.) 

Depending on whom you meet and what you discuss, your productivity for the day will either be raised or lowered....we make no guarantees.

The Twitter hash tag for the event is #cfnr. If you're coming, tweet about it to let others know...
