Report from last night’s Geek Dinner!

Posted by Chris Green on Friday October 14 @ 5:33 pm

Spent a very pleasant evening at the Hogshead pub in Dering Street, attending a Geek Dinner. Special guest for the evening was Tim O’Reilly of O’Reilly Media – the publisher of thousands of excellent computing and technology books, as well as the book-like Make Magazine.

Many thanks to everyone who took time out to engage me in the various off-the-wall conversations I was having. Particular thanks and a big hello to the chap from Flickr/Yahoo – the one lone Flickr developer in the UK at this time. It was great meeting you, and I hope we can chat again once you have settled in at Yahoo.

Tim O’Reilly was exceptionally good value for money (hey – the event only cost £1, which itself was just to cover the rather good finger buffet) and the various conversations he was involved in were extremely interesting.

I for one am looking forward to the next event, which I believe will be some time next month.
