Thursday night saw the 2010 rebirth of Laptopdance; a networking, info sharing, drink sipping geek-out. The Laptopdance events have had a varied past ranging from four of us in my basement flat eating a rather fine monk fish saffron paella to 120 of us at the Forrester Marketing Forum in London and pretty much everything in between.
The concept is pretty straight forward; Every day as you meander across the web you discover and play with new applications, web sites and services. Laptopdance is a chance to share those discoveries over a few drinks with some likeminded folk. To make sure we can find them the next day we bookmark everything on Delicious.
To get some continuity back into Laptopdance I am committing to holding them regularly on the last Thursday day of each month. Accordingly we kicked off the year with the first one at the award winning Lantana cafe (http://www.lantanacafe.co.uk) which is also owned by my sister. Due to capacity issues, both bodily and digitally I’ll be looking for a new venue and moving the invite engine to eventbrite.
