That sounds like a mouthful, but was actually a fun evening at the Old Bank of England, a wonderfully atmospheric pub in Fleet Street.
It’s the first time Sheila and I had been to a “London 2.0” event, and we got there quite early due to being able to skive off our regular commitments in plenty of time.
Before long, we were joined by other new faces and old timers. It was great to catch up with some people I’d not seen for a while and make other new friends, including:
- Liam Clancy – sporting a new haircut, but we still recongnised him!
- Mike Butcher of Techcrunch, who kindly bought a round and promptly wandered off before we could have a proper chat.
- Richard Livsey a newbie to the London developers scene, who had rather bravely cycled to the venue – hope your bike was still chained where you left it, Richard!
- Simon Whatley who was happy to chat with us, drink beer and blether on about the rugby for most of the evening.
Looking forward to the next London 2.0 do, I’ll certainly hope to speak to some more of the regulars next time.
Hey, I didn’t wander off that far! I just got caught up chatting! 🙂
I know, it’s easily done! Even though there may only be a few folks there, you get involved in one conversation and then find you’ve run out of time to talk to most of the people there by the end of the evening – it happened to me too 😉
I was going to take aversion to your use of the word “blether” when describing my possible ranting about Rugby, but then checked the definition. I would like to clarify that I wasn’t just blethering about Rugby, but also Sheila’s ‘teraflop’ and ColdFusion … Long live ColdFusion!! 🙂
The “teraflop”!! How could I have forgotten?? (it was probably the Becks)…
