The Social Life of a Geek

May 31st, 2008 · No Comments · Nights Out

The last few days have all been a bit of a blur, mostly because of the immense quantities of alcohol I have consumed in preparation for the 2 weeks of abstinence I am about to embark on. After recovering from my night out with Artistes I once again embarked on a trail of disaster in the form of an awesome Geek Dinner with the Moo.com folks.

The dinner itself was one of the best geek dinners in recent times, but it was the socialising afterwards that is, as always, the best part of the evening. The hardy few who stayed to see the mouse run across the floor were to be found at the institution that is Balans Cafe in Soho where we dined on breakfast at 1am. The even hardier few (actually me and Anne (who I will find a link for when she gets twitter)) made our way to Lvpo Bar where DJ Keith was playing his usual Thursday set. I finally made it home in the daylight, at 5 am.

Having slept most of the day, it was clearly time to head out drinking again, after all I didn’t want to miss out on London Web Week. I met up with some of the guys who had forked out for @media and then headed off to MiniBar Mobile with Jure Cuhalev (t). We missed the free beer which sucked, but they do rather nice cocktails at Corbett Place so I was not complaining. Can’t say I really listened to the talks, though what I did see I was not that impressed with, maybe I just don’t get what the web is about, but somehow that doesn’t quite seem true.

I pitched Zemanta to a few people on behalf of Jure, but I’m not sure how much he approved of this, I am, after all, pretty unconventional.

The rest of the night was mostly a blur, a good blur I think. Judging by the small amount of change I have come home with it was indeed pretty damn awesome!
