Today is Friday.
Every Friday there is a little thing that happens in London, just round the corner from Soho (here we go again), above The Coach & Horses Pub on Greek Street
Over there look ———————->
It’s official name of this thing is The Social Media Cafe, but – to it’s regulars – it’s fondly referred to as The Tuttle Club.
It’s a lovely place. Everyone is welcome. People come, people go, and the great thing is everyone is so, for want of a better descriptor, nice .
It’s great – You turn up, have coffee and occasional croissants, chat to like-minded folk, meet interesting people and generally have a bloody good time.
Lloyd Davis, Chief Proprietor and all round nice chap, set the place up as a prototype with a genuine vision to one day soon have a proper space, coffee an’ all, set up and running like a Cafe should. For us geeks innit.
So far it, in my opinion, has been a resounding success. I went along and met OH so many folk that I had been chatting to over Twitter/Seesmic and also a whole bunch of new people too. All of them lovely. I loved it so much that I took my friends along.
Anywhoo – The thing is, I’ve been a regular at the SMC now for a good 6-8 weeks – would that be fair to say? Has it been that long? Probably. Time goes so fast these days. Yes. Well. Today I had to miss it and miss it I did.
I’m pretty sure it looked something like this:
Lots of folk chatting around – having a good time – learning from each other – making contacts – developing new ideasï¿½ – sharing stories – catching up etc…all of that kind of thing – Top stuff.
Don’t get me wrong – it was good that I spent today in the office. Can’t go into it. I’m just happy I was there.
On the flip side however I really missed the hustle and bustle of my friends at the Coach & Horses.
I’ll be back next week, that’s for certain.
And hopefully that will stop Lloyd looking so glum –>
In the meanwhile however? What else has been going on? Well – I’m still making inroads to getting off my backside and moving this here blog you’re reading.
Got some lovely folk to help me out with the techie stuff. Just waiting for the go ahead and I can start the big move.
I think I’ve managed to get through the last list that I wrote – oop, no. Tell a lie.
Still need to cover – SF, T-Shirts , 6mths with SpinVox aaaaaaaaand The BBC. Balls.
Ok – Parking all that for now. First, something MUCH more exciting…
This Sunday I’m taking part in a Blogger Cook-off aka Food 2.0 aka Nom Nom Nom.
More to follow very soon – but I did a post about it over here along with a fun slide show, (just go for the pictures)…
Bye for now…
