And others are not, though I do find women are more helpful than others, and will in fact go out of their way to find information for you. This evening was just such a case. I’m running a barcamp in March, and one of the streams that will be set aside will be for Girl Geeks I was twittering this, yes I twitter, get over it. Roseanne Smith very nicely gave me some contacts and also suggested a site I’d never seen before and in fact cannot believe I never knew about it. It’s brilliant it’s called Geek Speaker.
Anyway thought it was very nice and useful site that folks may want to use.
Last week saw up have the July 4th Celebrations of twitter meet up! Small turn out, but none the less very enjoyable to put the face to the names. We met at the Bull and Castle, different location from the previous meet up, but we were staill able to find people as Elly had her cake baked and we did use twitter to locate people.
So a few questions that came up from @debbiemet how do you know who people are when you’ve never met them before? Are folks being nervous at first face to face meeting? I guess I’d never thought about it. I’m so used to randomly turning up to events and just jumping head in. But I guess it may put some folks turning up if they are a bit shy or don’t know what to expect. It means they miss out on events.
Saying that everyone had an enjoyable night and sampled some very nice beers Hopefully someone else will organsie the next one
Right, twitter, bloggers,nutters, really anyone who really wants to come along for a few beers and maybe a nibble or two come along. When…. Suggested date is July 4th, though if anyone thinks this isn’t a great date, shout now or forever keep quiet! If there any Americans to come along! We’ll help you celebrate!
Where…. next issue…. We met at O’Neills the last day, very nice. But let’s try somewhere new. I’ve suggested The Bull and Castle. Nice place, spacious, does their own brews and beers from all over the place. It’s different :) We’ll just have to get ellybabes to bring the balloon along to mark the spot!
