OMG, it’s the Tech Beat Up, brought to you by White Collar Brawler. It’s a charity deal at the Rock It Room on Clement this Thursday, November 11, 2010. (What better way can you think of to honor our military¬†veterans?)

Now, even though they’ll be using inflatable gloves, the techster with the most actual boxing skillz is sure to win.

The boxing tournament portion of the night will consist of tournament-style competitions between employees from Apple, Google, IBM, Zynga, Yelp, and many more.  For each contest, the boxers will duke it out in a bouncy castle with safe, inflatable gloves for two 45-second rounds. Winners will be determined by audience applause.

Meet the fighters and the companies participating in the Tech Beat Up:
Nate Houghteling, one of the event organizers and also a star of White Collar Brawler, said the following about the Tech Beat Up: “White Collar Brawler is a show about two friends who escape the cubicle life to pursue our dreams. With the Tech Beat Up, we’re helping people join in on that liberating experience. Plus, who doesn’t want to see a software engineer from Apple and a product manager from Google go at it (safely) for lifelong Internet glory and bragging rights?”
All proceeds from the event benefit ZeroDivide, a nonprofit organization that leverages technology to benefit disadvantaged communities in the Bay Area and beyond.
White Collar Brawler is a documentary web series set in San Francisco that follows two lifelong friends, ivy league grads, and former white collar workers as they leave the office life behind and train to become boxers. The two will fight each other in December. New episodes of White Collar Brawler are released, in real-time, on Tuesdays and Fridays of every week at
