It was great meeting you all last night. Here are some links to the topics I had mentioned. I'm very interested in trying to get MathsJam started up, perhaps in January? Is anyone else interested? Does anyone have suggestions as to a good location? I had originally held it at the Elephant & Castle, to keep with the pub theme, but am open to suggestions.

MathsJam: MathsJam is a monthly opportunity for like-minded self-confessed maths enthusiasts to get together in a pub and share stuff they like. Puzzles, games, problems, or just anything they think is cool or interesting. MathsJam also runs an annual conference which takes place every November, and this year will be on 17th-18th November
