My journalist pal Jimmy Guterman and I are holding one of our periodic Coffee for No Reason schmooze-fests this Thursday, August 2nd, at Voltage Coffee in Kendall Square. If you're part of the innovation scene in Kendall, or anywhere in New England, for that matter, you're welcome to join us. People introduce themselves... sometimes they do demos... there is occasionally free stuff... and there is excellent coffee.

Details: Thursday, August 2nd, 8:30 AM - 10:30 AM. Voltage Coffee, 295 Third Street, Cambridge.

Update: A few pics from the event are below.

Each time, we invite a few special guests. Here's who'll be there on Thursday (though not everyone sticks around for the full two hours...)

- Joe Chung, Redstar (@joechung)
- Mike Dornbrook, angel investor and former COO, Harmonix Music Systems
- Laura Fitton, HubSpot (@pistachio)
- Marina Hatsopoulos, Director, Tea Forte & Cynosure; founding CEO, Z Corp.
- Jennifer Lum, Adelphic Mobile (@jenniferlum)
- Rich Miner, Google Ventures (@richminer)
- Fareed Mosavat, Zynga Boston (@far33d)
- Sara Spalding, Microsoft (@saraspalding)
- Reed Sturtevant, Project 11 Ventures & TechStars Boston (@reedsturtevant)

If you can make it, there's no RSVPing. Just tweet (or mention in a Facebook or LinkedIn status update) that you'll be there. Use the hash tag #cfnr, and link to this post.
