    Excellent chance to meet some UX Gurus in person.

    Great event. Speaking to people is much better than hearing them make general statements.

    April 15, 2011

  • Sjors T.

    It was amazing to see half my bookshelf coming by and answering our questions

    April 14, 2011

  • Jessica H.

    Great opportunity to meet UX London speakers in an informal setting

  • Tej B.

    Not very often you get to sit around and pick the brains of such esteemed company from the Interaction Design world!

    A novel way to meet up and chat with quite a few top people in quite a short space of time. Good fun. Tough having time pressure, knowing the conversation may have to end any moment. Adds another dimension. Maybe it's my age, but I struggled a bit to hear everything everyone was saying. Big thanks Leisa for making it happen.

    Great to get up close and chat with speakers as I haven't been able to go to UX London. Speakers seemed exhausted in the last rounds but otherwise fun.

    Thanks to Leisa for arranging and an amazing evening - was great to meet so many passionate people!

    April 14, 2011

  • Boon C.

    SUPER AWESOME

    April 14, 2011

  • Lina P.

    What can I say other than a BIG thank you to Leisa for organising an amazing event and defending women in tech in defiance of Alan Cooper!

    April 14, 2011

  • Leisa R.

    So very thankful to the amazing speakers who generously shared their evening, experience and wisdom with us.

    April 14, 2011

  • John W.

    Thanks Leisa, a great 'book' last night. Where else can you get to chat with Alan Cooper, Tantek Çelik, Kate Rutter, Russ Unger, Steve Baty, Giles Colborne, Kim Goodwin and Harry Brignull.

    I'm at home now! I don't remember seeing a chained off area - this was the "Carbon" bar, right? The one with the music to loud to think over?

    April 13, 2011

  • Leisa R.

    We're here! Sorry it was really poorly (not at all) signposted - we're in the chained off area

    April 13, 2011

  • Nick D.

    Did this meetup happen? I was in the bar from about ten to seven and looked for the bookclub until around twenty past, but no luck. Did it move somewhere else?

    April 13, 2011

  • Leisa R.

    we're speed dating speakers - so you can squeeze into a group when you arrive if you like. You will have missed meeting a few by then but still time to meet and talk to some others.

    April 13, 2011

  • Jason C.

    Hi thanks for the info - can I just ask - I want to come but I won't make it until 7.45pm. Is it worth still coming? Do you have a schedule for the evening?

    April 13, 2011

  • Leisa R.

    Am at UX London, speaking to speakers who are planning to attend tonight. Definitely worth coming if you can! :)

    April 13, 2011

  • Leisa R.

    Bookclub officially goes from 7-9pm (tho you can stay later for more drinks if you like). It's at the Carbon Bar on the ground floor of the Cumberland.

    April 13, 2011

  • Nathan S.

    Where within the Cumberland Hotel are we meeting up?

    April 13, 2011

  • Jason C.

    Hi, quick question - how long does this bookclub meet go for?

    April 13, 2011

  • Leisa R.

    Not a dumb question. From what I gather the speakers will be different and the format will be different. They're doing a q&a session with pre-submitted Qs, this is small group informal chats. So, similar yes, but different. If that helps. (personally, I'd go to one or the other, not both).

    @Kerstin: You're 12th. It's to the right of these comments (on desktop version anyways). Look ---->

    April 12, 2011

  • Kerstin E.

    Can I see somewhere where I am in the waiting list? I had already lost hope, but now ... who knows! :-)

    April 12, 2011

  • Leisa R.

    you never know, we often rip through the waiting list in the lead up - we must have been through at least 15 today right? :)

    Oh, I thought it went out to the entire waiting list, thanks for clearing that up. Don't have much of a chance being number 35 on the list though... :(

    April 12, 2011

  • Leisa R.

    You'll get an email if/when you're next on the waiting list :)

    Do emails not get sent out when someone cancels their ticket? I see a few people have gotten places today, but no emails have been sent out... (to me anyways).

    April 12, 2011

  • Andrew M.

    Aaarghh... I can't go, unexpected work commitment, apologies for mere 24hr notice, but sure that my spot will be snapped up. I'll de-list myself now.

    April 12, 2011

  • Leisa R.

    no book this time Marg, because it's the UX London event, so you don't have to read anything. Next time we'll be back to standard bookclub format, with a book to read :)

    April 7, 2011

  • marg l.

    Confused where to find out what the agreed book choice is? Is it Switch?

    April 6, 2011

  • Rob E.

    For those attending I can tell you based on last year's experience that this meetup is a gem. Being up close and personal with the conference's speakers (in an informal setting) is a real treat. (thanks Leisa)

    March 18, 2011

  • Sjors T.

    Hi Nathan, this event being linked with UX London is a one off, 'normally' Leise aims to schedule two meetups. Experience learns that although oversubscribed in the beginning there will be enough drop-outs to give everyone on the waiting list a chance to go.

    So I'd suggest you keep the date free, sign up for the waiting-list and make sure that for the next bookclub you've signed up for the email alert.

    Good luck

  • nathan b.

    i didnt even get a chance to consider...! if this is so popular please can we organize more space? i don't mind paying. as a newbie id like to get in on these events please.

    March 18, 2011

  • Leisa R.

    Excellent question David. It's Wednesday the 13th.

    March 14, 2011

  • David C.

    I'm a little confused - is it April the 11th or 13th? Title says april 11th, date says wednesday 13th.

    March 14, 2011

  • John W.

    @Karl, why am I not surprised.

    March 14, 2011

  • mark n.

    Sounds quirky

    March 14, 2011

  • Karl S.

    I think I might have been banned from the cumberland - mind you that was a long loooooooooong time ago ;) it must have changed hands since then...

    March 14, 2011

  • Leisa R.

    save the date! signups open March 14 2011.
    (check me out being so very organised for a change!)
