theCSSdiv and drinks (with added wax)

As we are soon coming into the festive season (and I do mean coming – I refuse to think that Xmas is around the corner until December is upon us and I start getting chocolates every morning in my advent calendar) I have decided that the Xmas cheer can be best displayed via a good old knees up, arranged by myself in a lovely London venue.

In this case I have gone for the rather awesome looking Bavarian Beer House, near Old Street station on the 20th December from around 6pm; all I need say is that there will be beer served by the litre! If this is enough to get you excited and wanting to register then please do, I am using eventWax to provide the registration and up to now am loving how easy it is to arrange events online with it; please register your interest!! It will certainly be a great event Read more

d.Construct – the socialising

After stretching my legs (believe me I needed to after being scrunched into those wee seats (I’ll stop mentioning them after I get blood flowing through my feet again) I made my way down to the after-party which was being held on the beach front via my lovely hotel.

The place to be was The Terraces and I certainly was there, until they kicked me out! Read more

@media – day 2

After the exploits of the night before and openning day of the conference I arrived at day 2 certainly in not the state I would have hoped for; lets be honest I was fucking hung-over and the walk to the venue hadn’t helped clear any cobwebs! However with a packed day ahead of me I sucked it up, got to drinking water, consumed a number of sandwiches (which I still believe are the BEST hangover cure) and made my way to my seat for the second and final day to start. I think I will remember this day for a long time to come as one of the best since moving back to London Read more

@media – day 1

For me (and quite a few other people it seemed) @media technically started last night at the pre-conference party. As usual I did rather over indulge in the old drink so while I was extremely keen to I couldn’t actually do any kind of review of the event, what happened and who I met – while I could try it wouldn’t make a lick of sense. In a nutshell it was a big piss-up with a selection of savoury snacks – fantastic!

Thankfully for everyone involved I am in a much better state tonight, me and a few conference mates went for a curry and it has done as all good curries should do stemmed any kinda of drink stupor – again I must say fantastic. This means I can now reviews the days events in a way which will (hopefully) make sense, it was a great day so I would like to do it the credit it deserves. Read more

@media 2006 – big decisions

After attending last years conference and greatly enjoying all the sessions and then hearing about how this years conference was going to be bigger and better I thought wow, cool; how can they make it even bigger than that?!?

The answer is to make it a doubled streamed event; meaning that there will be times where sessions are run simultaneously; meaning that I have some big decisions to make! With the choice of two great sessions how can you even start to pick!?!? Read more
