In a post about getting attention, Nathan Burke,, reminds readers of the benefits to startup entrepreneurs of getting away from computers and attending networking events:

Go To Events - Another easy one. Go to tweetups, conferences, podcamps, etc. You’ll meet people, you’ll get to talk about your startup, and you’ll get the chance to hone your message each time you meet someone new.
