London WikiWednesday

July 5, 2007

Under David Terrar’s excellent stewardship London’s Wiki Wednesday goes from strength to strength. I was late (cars, money, train, keys)… but was pleased to discover that Bearing Point were serving champaign and giving away mugs! No wonder 50 people signed up to come along!

The highlight of the evening had to be Steve Coast’s presentation of OpenStreetMap – good to catch up with him and to meet Nick Black. Julie, Angela, Tim S, Martin, Mark, Alek and Lars were all there – and I met Harry Wood who has written a presentation on wiki gardening (that I want to see). I wanted to connect with Guy and lots of other people… looking forward to next month’s meeting.

It was late and I was last up  – but I did manage to mention that people should download and start playing with SocialCalc… and how easy it was to install!

Got home very late and caught up with the latest Germanic rages against Mappam on OSM… whatisitwiththesepeople?

    Thanks for the kind words! BearingPoint did a fine job of hosting, food, wine and beer. Actually you missed the fact that the champagne was provided by Jeremy Ruston of BT Osmosoft, by way of compensating the group for muscling in on the agenda and taking half an hour. They presented their mashup of TiddlyWiki making use of the BT SDK to connect people by phone and in conference direct from the wiki – great stuff!
