You won’t get me I’m part of the union

Blogging podcasting

This evening I attended the first Birmingham Bloggers’ meet (at the Kitchen Garden Cafe in Kings Heath)  – it was organised around this Facebook group. Despite the cameras and laptop in the picture we didn’t talk too much about technology, or show off our gadgets (although I will admit to posting the photo via my iPhone while I was there).

It was a nice fluid evening, with people dropping in and out,  having opinions and all of us desparatley trying not to have an agenda of any kind. I did however find out that Neve Campbell is always drinking in Kings Heath and that Debbie Harry is up for a balti.

Stef (on the left with the nice cannon camera) recorded part of the conversation and promises to podcast it should anyone be even vaguely interested.

There will no doubt be another, pop over to Facebook, or drop me a line an I’ll give you a nudge.

    Rather less gadgetry makes for more conviviality. Gadget-envy is not a nice thing, in that it can inhibit the gadget-less from participation.

    Just in case some of your readers were wondering, there’s a great little website called The Knowhere Guide that has a certain spirit in common with B:INS. They’ll find it here quicker than if I wrote about it on my own site. For example, here’s the listing for best and worst features of Kings Heath. The Moseley listing has been toned down somewhat. It used to be a laff riot.

    Thanks to you agendaless convenors. T’were the social event of the year.

  • Hi Jon

    Was a great meeting, just a shame I had to bail early.

    Had an idea on the way home of a way of making it easier to find Brum web content, and have started putting it together:

    Have posted on Facebook group about it too.
