You think about creating the next Last.fm, Flickr, or Web 2.0 start up? You think London lacks opportunities to meet up and discuss those ideas?
Then come to MiniBar where you will meet truly useful people. MiniBar is a social evening in East London which offers people a chance to snaffle some free beer while discussing p2p, Creative Commons, web applications, social networking and general Web 2.0 (3.0) mayhem & fandango. Here you can find people who will help you making your next project work - you can find designers, coders. journalists and even investment. The event is what we call 'useful fun'. Usually there are 200+ of London's - and beyond - finest web entrepreneurs.
Who you will meet?
From famous digerati and tech investors such as Esther Dyson (angel investor in Flickr and delcious), Mark Shuttleworth (Ubuntu), to tech journalists (Guardian, BBC), bloggers (OpenBusiness etc), Open Source developers (Drupal, Ubuntu), web designers, Creative Commons enthusiasts, web entrepreneurs (last.fm, eCourier, Tioti) to many coders, media artists and other generally useful, interesting and hyper connected people.
Past presentations include: Drupal user group, Esther Dyson, Directionless.info, Magnatune, BookMoch, Tioti, Modfilms, BurnStation, Mix&Mash
We have started a job board where you can find people with the skills you need, or where you can post a project idea, offer your skills and find interesting people to work with. In the future a dedicated website will extend the job-board with an online presence.
