When I was in Boston earlier this month, one of the people I’d thought to hang out with was Jared Spool, and of course he was on the other side of the country while I was in his hometown. This was a bit of a downer but I figured, hey, we both speak a lot, so I’d see him again somewhere at some point.
And how right I was: the week after my return home, Dopplr informed me that he and I would both be in London for the first weekend in March. I’m there for the Carson Workshop I’m giving (and there are only a few seats left, so you should grab one while they’re still open) and he’ll be in town for reasons of his own. As will Dana Chisnell, it turns out.
How could we not act on this? So I pinged the folks at Carsonified and asked them if they knew of a venue where we could arrange some kind of meetup. They were not only glad to help out, they offered to organize the whole thing. The result: a Web Geek Gathering at the Pitcher & Piano Trafalgar on Sunday, 8 March 2009. Jared, Dana, and I are all planning to be there. You should plan to be there too. You should also RSVP because, unlike the web, there isn’t infinite available space. Not to mention I’ve heard rumors that there might be some manner of free drinks. I mean, I’m just sayin’ what I heard.
Hope to see you there!
