Looking forward to d.construct

d.construct07It’s only just over a week away now. d.construct is the only conference I’m currently booked to attend this year (though I’m hoping to get to @media Ajax in November) So I’m really looking forward to it.

The sessions look like they are going to be very good – I’m also looking forward to spending getting to know a few people who’s blogs I’ve been following over the past few years. Oh, and the free food and drink ;¬)

If your going to be there get in touch through the backnetwork & let’s grab a beer.

The first Worthing TweetUp

Last night at the Burlington Hotel, during the biggest thunderstorm so far this summer we had the first Worthing TweetUp.

Considering this is something that started as an idea I mentioned to David Rosam in passing two or three weeks ago I was pretty pleased with the turn out. David & I were there along with Jala68, Loudmouthman, Spidernix, Steaders and Clive Flint.

It was an informal event with everyone sat round a table chatting about everything from social networking to photography and the Russian Mafia! Loudmouthman managed to stream some of it to qik, and Clive has posted some photos to twitter.

We were also joined for a while by a lovely – very scared collie called bones who’d run away from her owner on the seafront during the storm.  She ran straight into the bar at the hotel & took up residence under our table.

It was really good to meet everone last night, I’m planning to arrange another meetup in a few weeks, probably at a different venue (hopefully somewhere with WiFi) so keep an eye on this blog and upcoming for more information.  Incidentally, if you are interested in sponsoring future events please get in touch.
