every once in a while you have to look at the net to see what other people say that you are. so here’s that search for a2b3.
First, all the things that don’t relate to the lunch meeting:
A2B3 is a rare genotype resulting from the inheritance of both A and B genes on one chromosome.
The p16INK4a tumour suppressor protein inhibits a2b3 integrin-mediated cell spreading on vitronectin by blocking PKC-dependent localization of a2b3 to focal contacts
Unicode Character ‘YI SYLLABLE CIEX’ (U+A2B3)
These two transcripts differ by 75 bp and the protein that is coded by a2b3 has 25 amino acids more.
Second, the lunch meeting series:
Ed Vielmetti’s a2b3 group is quite popular (Thursday lunches; I missed it today while I wrote this blog post)
A2B3 is a physical/virtual community. There are many versions of the creation myth, but all involve a band of hardy explorers on a mission to try all the versions of bi bim bap served at restaurants in Ann Arbor.
The Ann Arbor Bi Bim Bop lunch group (a2b3) is a group of people organized by Edward Vielmetti who meet for lunch on Thursdays in Ann Arbor at Eastern Accents.
a2b3 is a reasonably regular lunch series gathering people from the Ann Arbor area to talk (often about tech stuff, but not always and not exclusively) and share a delicious bowl of bi bim bap. There’s no agenda, and a very minimal but evolving bits of organization to make sure that everyone who’s coming gets at least a little introduction to everyone else.
A2B3 is a motley collection of geeks, tech wizards, corporate startups, educators, students, hobbyists, politicians, activists, and various other identities who gather once a week for lunch and to discuss interesting ideas.
Started by U-M alum and Internet pioneer Ed Vielmetti as a way to see his friends each week, A2B3 has become an informal nexus for local knowledge workers and entrepreneurs.
