The Meetup on Thursday was brilliant - exactly what I needed: to sit down after quite a stretching day of business ethics training and relax with interesting people. I am glad I managed to have coffee with Chris before that so we could both meet rest of you guys! The place was packed but our little, quiet corner was just perfect for networking and chat. I shared my dilemmas on podcasting with podcast specialist, Janet Parkinson, and thanks to her encouragement I am digging the topic:) Fiona Cullinam, Billy Abbot, Anthony proved to be really cool people with great ideas! And every one else I talked too, of course!:) I had a sec to talk to Matt, the organiser, about the idea to keep it up as a monthly meetup (next up scheduled for the 20th of Nov) and I hope to be able to attend most of the meetups. It's fun!:)

Where I would like to be today? In London. Listening to leading marketers discussing the current state and perspectives of social media, web 2.0, branding, PR and marketing, future of guerilla activities and the one I am particularily interested in - future of search engines ('Use the wisdom of the online community - how to integrate user generated content to enhance the search experience' by Cesar Mascaraque from Asc.com).
I am looking forward to materials from this conference.
Check the site for more details or follow the event on Twitter.

OK, here it is. I am very, very, very happy - I cannot actually express HOW happy I am, that I decided to go to the Oxford Geek Night yesterday.
First of all the place: Jericho Tavern has great history. That is the place where bands like Radiohead started their stage career (although Felix was trying to convince me they actually started in his school?). Jericho is a nice area of Oxford and I was lucky to meet few kind people before the event, who live there - they gave me encouraging ideas about it, so I might consider moving there in January.
Secondly - people: very friendly, very open minded, networking orientated crowd. All you need to do is just step in:) I like this type of atmosphere, simply because I am new to the city.I am happy I met Tom Dyson from Torchbox (sponsoring the event, next to Google, and Moo), who was kind enough to answer few questions and help me out with asking more (yes, I did ask questions, as usual:P). I am also happy I managed to meet @peejaybee. Pity I didn't get hold of @ihatemornings or @benwerd, but hope to do so next time.
Now, when talking about content I will try to avoid my personal feelings (of complete admiration!:)). First presentation delivered by Jeremy Ruston on TiddlyWiki impressed me entirely. Second one was closer to my heart - since I am interested in modern literature. Adrain Hon described his project We Tell Stories and even though the website is quite self-explanatory, it's great to see how the campaign was planned, completed and perceived. (I do not agree with Stumble Upon generated traffic to be called organic, but it's just me being picky - I am actually happy the project was so successful and I hope there will be more to come!).
I couldn't stay to hear all the short presentations, and pity, because when I talked to Martin Chapman, he was quite convinced and excited about their idea of Price Wars.
Anyway, it was good to be there, and I will definitely join the Geek Nights from now on. I strongly advice anyone interested in those topics to come along, it's worth it.
More info, and hopefully soon some pix, here.
