Who’s hosting? TechSpace unConference will be organised and hosted by the media mogul Lewis Howell and local entrepreneur James Gentes (Founder at The Social Business): they will be responsible for keeping the conversation lively and the beer flowing (thanks Silver Moon!)

    For a near impromptu meeting, I found it successful, filling in the (often, large) gaps inherent of online correspondence alone. There's no substitute for physical bodies with bright minds collecting in the same square footage to swap ideas and information. I learned valuable stuff and expanded my business business network. It also gives evidence to the effectiveness of social media, considering the number of attendees (40+).

    Unfortunately, no, but I'm sure there'll be a few people hanging out afterwards if you want to swing by for the beer (assuming we have some left.)

    BTW, do I need to point out that if you had an office at TechSpace, this wouldn't be an issue...? ;-)
