Commanding Chaos for Coworking, Open Source and Creative Communities

Social Media Café London

Tue, 02/19/2008 - 07:12 -- rprice

My last Friday in London was the cause for Likemind London and (directly across the street, 5 minutes after) Social Media Café. I'm pretty sure the idea is to eventually own a physical piece of "IRL" space - this goes beyond coworking - London has several coworking spaces already. We're talking a place for social media nerds or pros, however they choose to label themselves, to get together and talk. Now taking place every Friday Morning near London's glitzy West End, behind the theatre where you can see "Spamalot".

Don't believe me? Here's a video by Mike Atherton (sizemore).

Here's a bit from Lloyd Davis, the organizer, on Social Media Café as Platform:

“What I want to create is a platform that enables people to create value for themselves.”

The inspiration for this comes from the tech world - CP/M & MS-DOS, the IBM PC, the Internet, the Web, Amazon Marketplace, Craigslist, Ebay, Facebook - what they all have in common is that no matter how they get paid for or how they’re organised, or whether or not they make money for their inventors, they have also given other people the opportunity to create new relationships, markets and businesses that weren’t possible before

Also met some cool peeps there, they'll be showing up in the blogroll on the left sidebar soon, and probably the daily Ma.gnolia summary in the RSS as well.
