Two atoms are walking down the street. One says, “Oh crap, I think I lost my electron.” The other says, “How do you know?” The first one replies, “Oh I’m positive I lost it.”
Geek humor was on display at Lunch 2.0′s first San Francisco event, held at the Yahoo! Brickhouse, home to video-editing site Jumpcut. A demo by the Jumpcut team, featuring a video that includes the aforementioned joke, was sandwiched between eating and schmoozing.

Lunch 2.0 began as a guerilla-style hunt for free lunch at campus cafeterias in the Silicon Valley. Now the original group of four, along with hungry Web 2.0 workers and enthusiasts, is welcomed into Bay Area offices. Check out this video for more on the event’s origin.
The Brickhouse lunch is the first of hopefully many lunches outside the valley — but events will continue in sunnier areas. In fact, Lunch 2.0 will serve up its next meal tomorrow at Simply Hired’s Mountain View headquarters. RSVP here.
