In 2005, while newbie blogger @Arrington was busy learning the difference between a blog post and a blog page in WordPress, Jason Calacanis, one of the original Godfathers of the Blogging Game, had already sold his baby Weblogs Inc - a collection of wildly successful blogs – for a reported 25 million dollars to AOL!
Meet Jason Calacanis at the Startup Grind meetup on Thursday, February 17, 2011 at Vaporware Labs in Mountain View, California in what is called a “Fireside Chat With Jason Calacanis“.
After Weblogs Inc, Calacanis was involved in several other startup ventures. Most recently, in 2008, Calacanis founded the knowledge sharing service Mahalo.
Event starts at 7 pm. Details on the meetup page here.
The event is free to attend. RSVP on the event page here.

[Update: Turns out, Calacanis had even predicted the housing crash on his personal blog, waaayyy back in 2005! Woot! ]
