Why are we doing this? top
Well, the WTA is awesome, obviously. But there’s another awesome reason – to celebrate Krishna Venkatesh’s birthday.
You may know Krishna well. Or you met him in passing at work. Or maybe you’ve never met him. But if you’re in the Seattle tech community, the greater Dallas area, or even just used Windows at some point, Krishna probably touched your life with a conversation, a smile in passing, or just telling you how much juice your laptop had left in 9 little pixels. He loved connecting people, exploring new places, and sharing the best recommendations.
Krishna disappeared in October 2014. For his birthday, we’re carrying on the tradition of helping connect people with a community brunch, enabling people to explore new places with the WTA, and taking you to a cool restaurant that’s tucked down a side street behind a humble façade. It’s a very small way to keep sharing all that he shared with us.
Krishna loved parks and day hikes, and the Washington Trails Association helps make both great. They protect hiking trails and wildlands, maintain trails, and promote hiking as a healthy, fun way to explore the outdoors. It’s a great way to share Krishna’s love of the outdoors with even more people.
