The women named on Raincity Studios' Vancouver Tech Women to Watch in 2008 are invited to a presser and photo op before Launch Party episode 3, on January 25th at 5:30 at the Lamplighter Pub on Water St., in Gastown.
Maura Rodgers of Strutta rallied up this plan to acknowledge the ladies of the RCS list along with the fellas on the Techvibes Vancouver tech-industry insiders to watch in 2008 list.
Noted Vancouver photographer-blogger-partier Duane Storey will be on hand to memorialize the occasion for posterity.

Some may know that Urban Vancouver is run by Bryght and that I am one of the founders of Bryght. I am happy to announce that Bryght was acquired by Raincity Studios who we have partnered closely with over many years. What does this mean for Urban Vancouver? Nothing! Business as usual.
What does this mean for Gastown? Well we're hiring :-) !
From the official Raincity Acquires Bryght Announcement:
With great enthusiasm, we are pleased to announce that Raincity Studios has acquired the (almost-legendary) Drupal pioneer company, Bryght. The companies have enjoyed a longtime collaboration offering complementary services as they've grown professionally together. Our cultures and personalities are a great match and everyone around here is eager to see what we can create together.
