I'm heading to London at the end of the week to spend some time at the BBC and attend the Open Tech 2005 Conference, thanks largely to Ben Metcalfe of Backstage fame (among other things). In fact, I see that he just wrote about it too.
In some of the email we've exchanged, I tossed out the idea of a Geek Dinner on Friday night. I don't know what the venue would be and would rather rely on local recommendations--preferably near the Open Tech conference.
According to the site:
OpenTech 2005 will take place on July 23rd at Imperial College's Reynolds Building, part of the Charing Cross hospital campus in Hammersmith, London.
If you're interested in attending, please leave a comment with your e-mail address or mail me. And if you've got a suggestion for somewhere to eat--all the better!
As a bonus, it looks like Chis DiBona will be in London too. I wonder if he'll be anywhere near the same place?
Update: Check out the official Geek Dinner site where Lee is helpig to coordinate things. Excellent!
