Trending: New security service from Cloudflare hopes to kill the VPN once and for all

A big thanks to all of you who came out for our first-ever GeekWire Meetup last night.

As you can see from these pictures by photographer Annie Laurie Malarkey, a large crowd of GeekWire readers showed up to mingle, play a live version of our Name that Tech Tune contest and listen in on an interview of entrepreneur Rich Barton (Expedia, Zillow, Trover and many others) by GeekWire’s John Cook.

It was also great to see Bill Sleeper, our 96-year-old Geek of the Week, in the house — capturing the interview on his iPhone in the photo above, true to form.

Thanks also to our sponsors, thePlatform and BusinessWire, for helping to make the event possible.
