London Geek Dinner

So despite the efforts of South West trains, we made it to the Geek Dinner!

I met Howard on the train at Basingstoke, and it turned out that Sarah was sat opposite us on the train. Dave met us at Waterloo.

It was great to meet Robert Scoble, and also to hear some of his opinions as to the effect that blogs are having on the world. He seemed genuinely chuffed by the number of people who had come along (about 120, double the largest geek dinner held in the USA). It was a great opportunity to meet a load of other techies, and just generally chat.

Probably the funniest moment of the entire night, was Ian, who was convinced that Sarah couldn’t be a geek, until she pulled out her binary watch! You can read both Ian’s version and Sarah’s version on their respective blogs.

Aside from the good food, and general geekiness, it was great to be able to catch up with Howard now that Locutio is really taking off. Howard did make a bit of an impression on Dave however, with his Frankenstein style surgery to produce Zaphod Beeblebrox Channel 9 Guy!

There is a page up with loads of blog entries describing the night, and links off to pictures, plus pod casts of the night and Robert Scobles speech itself – well worth a listen if you have an interest in blogging. (Incidentally, I do pop up in the pictures, just to prove I was there!)

I only had my Nokia 3650 with me, so my pictures are not the greatest (roll on the arrival of my new phone), but I’ve added a few below.
