What we're about
This meetup has served various purposes in its time, with meetings are various locations.
Now it is developing as a "home" for continuing conversations.
I'm very lucky in the people I meet and the conversations I have. Often follow-up conversations happen, either face-to-face or on Skype. When I've enjoyed a conversation I often think of other people who would have appreciated listening, or joining in. Hence the current "mini-meetup" format.
I'm an "off peak" member at Hub Westminster, which is a good location to meet. Announcing a conversation as a mini-meetup is one way to open it up and allow others to join in. I have to keep numbers small, so it is like a small business meeting, rather than an "event". If I arranged something larger then I'd have to pay for a separate space. In mini-meetups I'm simply having a conversation and giving a couple of additional people the chance to join in.
