Trending: In Amazon’s hometown, we get a read on Barnes & Noble customers as downtown Seattle store closes

That was really fun. Team GeekWire was excited to be joined by more than 250 of you last night for the GeekWire Meetup at the Hub Seattle in Pioneer Square. The evening featured an insightful and inspiring conversation with Tableau Software CEO Christian Chabot, who shared his perspectives and lessons learned from building the company into one of the emerging titans of the region’s tech industry.

A big thanks to everyone who joined us. We’re posting highlights from Chabot’s comments, starting with his thoughts on startups and venture capital. In the meantime, here are a few scenes from the evening in tweets and pictures.

Thanks also to our meetup sponsors, Outlook.comSeattle Children’s Research InstituteMicrosoft User Research and Bing for helping to make this event possible.
