Meetups in the USA! with @technokitten & @jamestagg

Yo, America!  I missed you.  I’m coming back.

I’m helping organise and will be attending a series of meetup events in the first week in May.  I’m working on this with Helen Keegan of Mobile Heroes and James Tagg of Truphone.

Helen and James will be in the Bay Area on 2nd & 3rd.  I’m joining them in NYC later in the week and going over to LA with them for an evening do the following Monday.  I’m hoping to see my SF peeps after that as I’ll have a few days holiday before coming home.

All the events are free and fun!  The first is Helen’s world-famous Swedish Beers Party which will be in San Francisco on May 2nd.  The others are talks with James (and other speakers to be confirmed) on the subject of AI and the future of mobile, entitled: “When will our smartphones be smarter than us?”

There’ll be a brunch down in Mountain View the following morning, May 3rd.

We’re doing something breakfast-y in Manhattan on Thursday May 5th.

We will likely do a Tuttle NYC on the morning of Friday 6th but that will be even more informal and become clearer when we’ve booked accommodation.

We’ll be doing the final one in Los Angeles on the evening of Monday 9th.

We’re working hard at the moment to pin down venues but want you to save the dates in your city and spread the word.  If we’re Facebook friends you should get an invite there too, but since FB search is rubbish, don’t bet on it.  All the events are here on FB, please pass on the invitation to anyone who would be interested.

We also still have openings for additional speakers and sponsors so if that’s you, please get in touch (first name dot last name at gmail!)

See you soon!

Podcast: Me talking #tuttle and #unconferences with @emm_bel

That Dave Briggs dropped me in it again, wantonly spreading my name about, telling people I know stuff and that. Thanks Dave!

And so I came to speak to Prof. Emma Bell of Keele University and Dr Daniel King of Nottingham Trent.  They are researching unconferences and wanted to understand how Tuttle fits into that mix. It’s a longer than usual chat, so maybe listen to it while relaxing in a warm bubble bath.

[Quality note: I’m afraid that towards the end the audio track of them gets a bit glitchy.  It’s not unbearable, but you should take it as an indication to get out of the bath soon]
