Food Loves Tech is a wrap! Thank you to everyone who joined us this past weekend. We’re working on our write-up, and you can check out our tagboard in the meantime. We ate bugs, drank seaweed, test drove VR and much, much more. Were you there? Let us know what you thought by leaving us a comment. Hope to see you there next year!
