Hello there! My name is Joanna and I'm The Guardian's Social & Communities Editor. I am the founder of Hacks/Hackers London, which began life as "Ruby in the Pub" - an attempt to teach myself to code!
Hi Joanna, Have you covered bitcoin yet in any of your previous meetups? I'm afraid I've only been to one so far, though I keep RSVPing in the affirmative. I'm planning to come to next week's @ bloomberg, and if you haven't covered bitcoin before, I'd love to do a short introduction as it dovetails nicely with micro-financing bloggers by rewarding page views.
We would like to invite you to a meeting in the House of Commons hosted by Chris White MP on social enterprise and equality. In 2010 Chris introduced a Private Member's Bill - the Public Services (Social Enterprise and Social Value Bill).
The meeting takes place on Wednesday June 13th at 6.30pm and you can find out more and register at http://www.meetup.com/21stCenturyNetw...
You maybe interested in several meetings we will be holding this year on civil society and social media. On February 28th we are holding a webinar on ?Strengthening Civil Society Through Social Media? and we would love you to join us. You can do so from your own home or office. All you need is a computer and a headset or speakers. It takes place between 7.30 to 8.30pm

OH ok, right..I stand corrected then.. Seemed part of the crew.
Have been thoroughly enjoying the Hacks/Hackers meetups (what a great idea!) Did you ever conquer code? We run a meetup in NY called Ladies Who Code and have decided to start up in the UK in light of the excellent response across the pond.
I was wondering if you or any of your members might be interested in attending. It is pretty tech focussed but promises to be a great evening. Here's the details...http://www.meetup.com/Ladies-Who-Code... Hope to see you there!
