One of the first things Nic Haralambous had to say to me on arrival at the 27dinner was - why are you not at home working? My response was quite simply that once every two months I take a night off to socialise and interact with like-minded Geeks and last night was no different.
It’s only my second 27dinner but I have to admit that I really look forward to these Geek gatherings as it gives me an opportunity to chat with all these virtual users in a real-world kind of way.
I had some awesome chats with Paul de Sousa, Vinny Lingham (who despite having such a HUGE reputation is actually such a down-to-earth guy), Vincent Maher, Colin Daniels, Susan Deysel (who couldn’t remember me for love or money) and the infamous Erik Hersman who is more commonly know as the White African.
