Geekeasy Derby: June

Geekeasy is a relaxed gathering of geeky/techy/creative types in Derby, who have an interest in learning and perhaps working together. It's very friendly, and you'll find an interesting mix of people to talk to.

Geek Speak: Alison Bull from Looking Glass Research will be telling us about how getting into the detail of market research can help businesses. Ali's worked at a variety of companies including ITV and CNBC, so has plenty of experience to share!

>> Please fill out the quick survey Alison has prepared for the talk here!

After the talk we normally carry on chatting, drinking and nibbling on samosas. All types of geek are welcome: creative, technical, digital, engineering, science, space, web, design, chic geeks and even non-geeks.

    Besides the QI talk by Ali, I also had some nice chats about: The After 8 sleeve challenge; Nestlé boycotts; fetishes; minty samosas; The Physics of Star Trek; amazing tattoos; Big Data; love of the ginge; eyebrows; semantic markup; SEO; and Gandi.net

    Look froward to the next one :-)

      Cheers John, I'll give it a listen! I try and catch More or Less when it's on, but this one slipped me by...

      You might have missed it as the 10 minute episodes come from their World Service broadcasts (not Radio 4).

    Ha ha, I inadvertently became the star of my own ink-related presentation :)

    Nice to talk to you all. We had no idea that things got even more interesting AFTER 8 o' clock!

    See you all in July.

    Hi! I've just joined this group and I'm looking forward to coming along and meeting people! I'm in Leeds on the 6th and my train doesn't get back until about half 6, so I wouldn't be able to make it to the meet until 7ish, is it bad form to come in so late? Thanks!

    • Samuel J.

      Welcome to the group! You might miss some or all of the talk, a few of us stay quite late!

    • Christine C.

      Hi Claire! Don't worry at all, it's very relaxed and nobody gets in trouble for arriving later ;-) As Sam says, you may miss the talk, but you'll be just in time for the samosas!
