This time last week I was getting ready for the second day of barcamplondon4 by having a nice cool beer on our roof terrace, which with the awesome weather turned out to be the massive hit I hoped it would be.
The same I hope could be said for the whole of barcamplondon4. Read more
Today saw the launch of the London Web Week (LWW) website as well as the announcement of Web Roots, a new conference aimed at new people coming into the industry; a great idea in my mind as the more new blood we get the better! All the hard work of “Mr @media” Patrick Griffiths – though I’m happy to say that I’ve also played my own small part in things.
LWW has been put together as a kind of umbrella event to hold a large number of geek events over one week in the summer – it’s a bit like a fun fair but with less rides, more beer and less slates getting stolen from your rooftop. I’m very happy that barCampLondon4 is being held as the closing event – hopefully it will be an excellent closing to the week. Read more
barCamps are great fun; I was at the last one at Google and am now running the next one in my companies (GCap Media) offices in Leicester Square. Registration opens next Thursday (27th March) at 11am from our eventWax site and basically things are going to be a lot of fun! Of course I would say that but we’re not the second most interesting education event on upcoming.org for nothing! Read more
So the elephants are out, new content is in, ads will be coming in (worth a try), extra microformats are in (hAtom, hcard, hreview and hevent and a bunch of rel’s), pictures of me all over the place (surprise, surprise), the contact form has gone and thankfully I hope that things are looking a bit nicer :>
