Let's do coffee...but inside a newsletter.

Hey everyone,
Lots of stuff happening in my life and so sending this to you from Tramway House in Dublin:

Honestly it's not a holiday!
From Big Blue to Blue Hawaii
The news is out I’ve joined up with TWO great outfits as my next move and will now be able to go from StartupsHK to StartupsPacificRim (just shy of StartupsEarth!) Read it here.
My Bromance with Dave McClure
This should have been the headline for this post I wrote about Dave!
The Spoon
The first and only (for now) edition of my VR/AR meet-up group in Hong Kong. I wanted to continuously create subgroups of startup discussion and this one was very well attended and received. Facebook and Slideshare.
Meet Me at Web Summit
My main travel plan outside of kicking off Cohort 9 in Honolulu will be of course the mothership of conferences: Web Summit in Lisbon! If you are coming download the app and add me and lets meet at the RISE lounge where I will be hosting all my APAC startup friends and people that want to come to Asia!
The HK Startup Survey is now LIVE
If you are in Hong Kong be officially recognized as a startup by helping me to fill out this survey. StartupsHK is working with InvestHK to perform this and the results will be announced in January 2017 at the StartMeUp event. Please register today at #2016HKTechSurvey
It would be easy to be Spider-Man in Hong Kong.
Sweet Tweets of Mine
Hackathon on the MTR???!!! Find out all about it on Oct 11
Blueprint 2.0 opens April 2017 with 30,000 sq ft in Dorset House with 10k devoted to event space!
Memory Lane: Newspaper coverage on our very first #StartupSaturday event in 2010 at @cyberport_hk!
I visited the DJI Flagship store in Hong Kong and touched the Mavic and love it’s size but then I’d still have to buy the Osmo too.
The Mavic is smaller and cheaper but GoPro Karma: Drone + Gimbal = I’m in!
I know it will shock you but I decided not to upgrade to iPhone 7 and am staying with 6S as I love it and I love iOS10 - I’m getting the Apple Watch 2 though. Now where is my new MacBook Pro, Tim????
Luke Cage is on Netflix now or as I know him as: Power Man. Also Westworld (one of my favorite movies of all time starring Yul Brynner) as a  new TV series on HBO this week with a great premiere. Remind me to tell you about Virtex; my comic book heavily influenced by the original 1973 film.
Hot Star on right and giant chicken on left.
Snapchattin' and Instagrammin'
I like Snapchat and Instagram Stories equally and differently - but follow me on either for those short videos of what’s happening. 
Heads up - I am a newly minted Forbes contributor and will be posting once a week and I will launch a new YouTube vlog very soon
That's all for now!
